About Denise Flaim

Denise is a professional journalist who is lucky enough to write about the thing that she loves – dogs, and in particular, Ridgebacks!

A member of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States, and its former historian and health-and-genetics chair, Denise has been breeding, showing and generally adoring Ridgebacks since the late 1990s.

After a 20-year career as an editor and columnist at the daily newspaper Newsday, Denise embarked on a career as a magazine and book publisher. Her publishing company, Revodana Publishing, specializes in dog books that cover all breeds, but it is the Ridgeback books that are closest to her heart.

Denise’s Ridgebacks books are written in an entertaining, accessible style, and have an insight and appreciation of the breed that are missing in so many generic breed books.

Denise currently has two books that are available on this website: Your Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy, which is a guide to finding, acquiring and rearing a puppy of this magnificent breed; and 100 Memorable Rhodesian Ridgeback Moments, a stunning visual exploration of the Ridgeback through history.

A third book is currently in the works.

You can reach Denise at denise@ridgebackcentral.com.
