Denise Aileen DeVries is a translator, blogger, and historical fiction author. Originally from Colorado, she lived in Arizona for 4 years after 40 years on the east coast.
In the spring of 2020, Denise and her husband, artist Alvaro Ibañez, returned to their Virginia home to continue developing a retreat center for the arts.
After their return, she edited Measured Moments – the way we see it, an illustrated poetry anthology. Her first novel in the “Hull Crossing Chronicles” series, Sweet Tea and Vinegar Pie, was published in late October in print and as an e-book. She is currently working on a sequel, Prickly Pear Lemonade. Both books are set in 1932.
In February, Denise introduced a companion series, “Key to History,” time travel stories for all ages. In the e-book Staying Indoors, set in March 2020, four quarantined cousins, ages 10-14, visit 1919. Steamboats and Ghost Crabs, set a year earlier, takes the cousins on a historic tour of Northumberland County.
Our Project Self-Care workshops are supported by the Robert B. Lantz Foundation, the Agape Fund, donations from program participants, and individuals wishing to support The Bay Center.
