Backpockets by Author Denise Riley


by Denise Riley

My name is Denise or Nina to some. I am a retired educator, wife, mother to four adult children, grandmother, and great grandmother.

I am an only child and I grew up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I graduated from John Marshall High School and then went to Oklahoma State University where I earned an elementary education degree and a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as a administrator’s certificate. I taught school for 14 years in Oklahoma, California, and Virginia. My next 30 years in education were at the Oklahoma Technical Assistance Center where I later became the Assistant Director. The center provided technical assistance and evaluation services to alternative education programs and professional development to schools in Oklahoma.

Backpockets is a story about the simple joys and pleasures in a little boy’s life. A time of childhood innocence that expresses a young boy’s imagination and excitement with the simple props of nature. It is about memorable moments filled with the eagerness and the freshness of youth.
