Speaker: Denise Ditto Satterfield, Writer of the Tooth Collector Fairies Series
July 17, 2018, 5:45pm
Archway Gallery
2305 Dunlavy St.

Denise Ditto, a native Texan, is a freelance writer who loves writing for children. She is the author of the children’s book series titled The Tooth Collector Fairies. Book one, titled Batina’s Best First Day (“BBFD”), is a book about persistence, friendship, and teamwork. It also encourages children to brush their teeth, but please don’t tell them it has a public-service message. “BBFD” was performed by children as a musical at the Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center in October 2016 and by the C.KIDZ Theatre School, junior division of the Players Theatre Company in Conroe, Texas in May 2018. Her second book, Home from Decay Valley, was released in 2018.

When Denise is not working on her children’s book series, she is working with other writers in her community. She is the Executive Director at Houston Writers House, a position she shares with her business partner, Rebecca Nolen. Also, she is an active member in the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators since 2012 and a board member for the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) – Woven Express in Kingwood 2016-2018 term. We'll welcome her to the July 17th meeting.
