A Little Bit of Nonsense

  Author Denise Rodgers
Author & Poet Denise Rodgers, The Poetry LadyKnown to her close fiends and family as The Poetry Lady, Denise Rodgers is a professional writer who has been reading and writing poetry since she was 14, when her older sister had the nerve to get married and leave her alone with hours and hours of quiet time to read and write.

She is the author of “Great Lakes Rhythm & Rhyme,” a collection of whimsical poetry about the Great Lakes region, as well as “A Little Bit of Nonsense,” a collection of wacky poetry about animals, food, and odd ideas and people.
