Author Biography

I am the publisher and acquisitions editor of the Love Revealed series of anthologies.

I believe we all share a life’s purpose of learning to give and receive more love. I bow to the reality of billions of hearts healing via the Love Revealed books.

The adventure of gathering these true stories began in 2011 with Mother-Daughter Memories: Love Revealed, followed in 2012 by Parent-Child Memories: Love Revealed.

Ten years ago, a passion emerged: joining friends for evenings of 10-minute writing exercises. Today, I enjoy the Hilltop Writers circle in Frederick County, Maryland, U.S.

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

Edited by Dena Clayton, “Living Through Grief” is the third book in the 'Love Revealed series' and is a fine collection of short stories. The writers are ordinary people with extraordinary skill in writing their stories dealing with loss, overcoming obstacles and finding love.

It is one of the most inspiring books I have read for a long time. Halfway through the stories, I slowed down because I didn't want my reading to end so soon. This is not a place for me to judge the writing style or the level of the prose in detail and it is definitely not for me to judge the real people who are part of the stories. The book is perfect as it is, and it is the message of the stories that matters. It does not intend to teach people about how to move on or bury the grief deep in one corner, but it is a book for people to share and learn each other's strengths. It invites the reader to see how the writers face life’s defining moment by dealing with the loss of their loved ones. Live through grief not just by grieving alone, but remembering the best moments of that someone who isn't there anymore. This book is full of inspiring stories of strength and love to fortify anyone’s spirit and resolve. After reading this, I can honestly say that I am more grateful and remember to count my blessings.
