Join Brave Step Wednesday, Oct. 4 as the author of "Denial," Nanette Kirsch, walks us through the compelling story of David Wagner. 

David Wagner leads an enviable life. He is married with five children and achieved millionaire status before the age of 35. But, behind this enviable outer shell, Wagner is hiding dark and dangerous secrets, secrets that threaten to derail the life he’s worked so hard to create. Based on a true story, Denial explores why our secrets don’t keep, and why that is, in fact, for our good. 

Nanette Kirsch’s passion for living out Ernest Hemingway’s directive to “write the truest sentence you know” led her to major in journalism and pursue a career in communication.
