 Denise Kiernan Biography

“Denise has not only written a fascinating book, she is a wonderful speaker. She drew a large audience for her talk at the Carter Presidential Library and the audience loved her presentation.” -- Tony Clark, Carter Presidential Library Author Program

“She is a shining star: professional, engaging, approachable. In this day and age of the superficial and synthetic personality, Denise Kiernan is the real thing.” -- Joel Walker, Education Specialist, National Archives at Atlanta

“The warmth, energy and intelligence you brought to the evening will be long remembered by all of us who were privileged to be there.” -- Phyllis Barasch, President, NYU Alumni Association

“Denise is one of the best speakers I’ve ever heard, and people were entranced. This was the event of the year.” -- Flossie McNabb, event coordinator at Union Avenue Books and East Tennessee History Center in Knoxville, TN

Denise Kiernan is the New York Times bestselling author of "The Girls of Atomic City," the true story of young women living in a secret government city during World War II while unknowingly working on the first atomic bomb.

In one of her most popular talks, Kiernan takes audiences back in time and into a top-secret world where young women and men lived and worked surrounded by spies and secrecy, forbidden to speak of their work, even to each other, as the United States worked to face the challenges of World War II and the Manhattan Project raced to harness nuclear power. A lively and engaging speaker, Kiernan enthralls audiences with this story of adventure, intrigue, sacrifice and controversy.

Kiernan has been working as a writer for more than 15 years covering a variety of topics. She has been published in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Village Voice, Ms. Magazine, Saveur and many more national publications. She has also worked in television serving as head writer for ABC’s "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and has produced for places such as ESPN and MSNBC as well as independent productions. She has authored several popular history titles including "Signing Their Lives Away," "Signing Their Rights Away" and "Stuff Every American Should Know."

Based on her years as a freelancer, she devised a money-management system for independent workers, outlined in "The Money Book for Freelancers, Part-Timers, and the Self-Employed." She has also co-authored books for athletes, entrepreneurs and actresses. As an author, Kiernan has been a featured guest on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "PBS NewsHour," "NPR Weekend Edition," "Morning Joe on MSNBC," "The Takeaway on WNYC," "The Cycle on MSNBC" and many other print and radio outlets.
