Writing is like sculpture. Sometimes you’re adding clay to a wire armature, sometimes you’re chipping away at marble. Either way, if you don’t have a clear vision of where you’re going, you’ll never get there.

About Denise Moss

Denise got her start in television writing on the acclaimed show, “Murphy Brown.”  But before that, she was a journalist herself, writing freelance for The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Examiner and Outside Magazine.  

After “Murphy Brown” she wrote for “The Wonder Years,” “Roseanne,” and “Fraser,” among other shows.  She won an Emmy and Golden Globe as a producer of “Fraser” and an Emmy and Peabody for “Roseanne.”  She’s sold, written and produced myriad pilots including one that became her own NBC show, “Home Court.”   

After having her daughter, she turned to writing for the family space, including executive producing the Rugrats spinoff “All Grown Up.”  And several Disney Channel and Amazon shows, including the international hit, “Just Add Magic,” for which she was nominated for an Emmy.

During her career, she has enjoyed imparting what she knows, teaching at UCLA Extension and mentoring new writers for the Writers’ Guild of America. 

Currently working on her first novel, Denise believes good writing comes down to three things:  Structure.  Structure. And structure.
