About Denise Kahn
My very first memory of life was the sound of my mother's glorious voice singing to me, most likely a Brahms lullaby, and I'm convinced that is why music always has a delicious way of creeping into my writing and becomes one of the most important elements.
I spent twenty years in Europe because of my father, who was with the U.S. Diplomatic Corps, and my mother who was an opera singer. I worked mainly as a simultaneous interpreter and translator as I am a linguist and speak several languages, five of which are fluent. I also worked in the travel/airline and music industries and I have incorporated some of my adventures in TRAVEL TALES, my short travel stories series. Because of my exposure to people of different nations my writing includes many foreign settings and cultures.
I am a proud mother of a gallant Marine who served in Iraq, and among the members of our household you will find Louie the cat (aka King Louie), so named because of his clawing love of Louis XV and XVI furniture, and surely thinks he must have been a fearless Marine in one of his former lives.
I write about romance, suspense and thrillers in different genres: Contemporary, historical and military. I demand of myself to be accurate in my research and to produce the best work possible. I hope that my books are entertaining, perhaps enlightening and informative. I want my readers to enjoy the time we spend ‘together’, and that my characters are just as alive as they are to me, even when the last page is turned.
In addition to fiction I have published a photo book, ‘Around the World in 80 Quotes on Photos’, and ‘Travel Tales’, short adventure stories from different places around the globe.
“Isabel Allende, Paulo Coelho, Denise Kahn. What do they have in common? They are all amazing writers and storytellers with a touch of mysticism… Denise Kahn's ‘Split-Second Lifetime’, like ‘House of Spirits’ and ‘the Alchemist’, is bound to become a classic.”
‘Split-Second Lifetime’ is an International Bestseller in ten countries.
iTunes has ranked 'Peace of Music' #1 in their TOP BOOKS.

See-Fu is a renowned potter from China’s 13th Century Dynasty who, after a visit from the Goddess Quan Yin, is inspired to create an exquisite vase for his daughter’s dowry. The piece, painted with the powder of precious gems and imbued with music, captures the attention of The Emperor who agrees to a marriage between his son and See-Fu’s daughter and orders his Admiral to take this emblem of Chinese artistry on a voyage bound for undiscovered lands. The vessel, however, falls victim to a hurricane and is lost in the Mediterranean Sea.
Centuries later, as two Egyptian fishermen haul in their nets, they discover an ugly encrusted urn. It is the vase.

An assassination, a sabotage on a Greek island, and more than one war await the good doctor’s family in Peace of Music as the vase inspired by a Goddess shapes their legacy with music, hope and peace.
