I Don't Wanna Be Pink
How a single, 39-year-old refused to
let breast cancer and its fervent
culture define her
"From braving a plane ride with a bald head to navigating sexy hook-ups after a double mastectomy, Dena inspires and entertains with her candid, smart and often laugh-out-loud story of the year she never dreamed she'd endure." —Wendi Aarons, award-winning humor writer
Dena Taylor is a professional copywriter, humorist and author of the new memoir, I Don't Wanna Be Pink. Her work has been published in Austin Woman magazine and on Fresh Yarn, and recognized by HOW, PRINT, and Graphic Design USA. She has written and performed with Austin's Gag Reflex sketch comedy group, and was once hailed a "freak" by Wayne Brady after successfully mimicking the sound of wind as a volunteer in one of his Las Vegas shows. She lives in Seattle surrounded by loving friends, gifted creatives, and a commotion of fur called Bridget.
Creative, strategic, and collaborative – Dena is responsive, detail-oriented,
and a big-picture thinker. You can count on her for vivid, engaging work.
