About Me

Hi, I’m Denise Heidel!  I call Clemmons, NC home and I love being a Carolina girl — a native, that is… not so much into the sports stuff.  I am married to a drummer named Wayne… I have a grown son named Charlie…  Wayne and I share our home with a dog and four cats (the fourth happened on accident… we only meant to adopt one more, but really—how much could one extra kitten eat, right???)

So about me.  I’ve been a writer for my community magazines for over 11 years and as a writer, I have clearly fulfilled my obligation to have cats. And I also honor the second writer credo with an exceptional enthusiasm for coffee! It’s never too late or too hot for a good cup of coffee!

One important note about me as a writer—I have a strong, unwavering opinion about the Oxford Comma.

Which is a perfect segue to transition to my nerdy side. My business is called The Office Nerd Virtual Assistant, LLC. I am a Jill-of-all-Trades who loves working with small businesses. Spreadsheets and essays make me happy.

Before every other role I have though, I’m a Jesus girl. My daily blog, My Grace-Full Life, is based on my faith journey. As a recovered prodigal, I love to share God with others each morning.

Thank you for visiting! I look forward to hearing from you!
