Teacher, Entrepreneur, Author, Entertainer...

I am The ORACLE. I say what you need to hear, may not be what you want to hear, but it boils down to your truth, not mine. I am also a small press publishing company. I prepare fliers, booklets, programs, business cards and I do voice over, public speaking, and live performances. There is so much that I am qualified to do. I am known as a Jaqueline of all trades and master of most. And what I can't do, I get it done. I am a professional perfectionist and I am efficient. That being said, I look forward to a productive and prosperous collaboration with you!

Cook, artistically known as The ORACLE, has ventured into the exciting eclectic realm of Spoken Word Artistry, winning two coveted Spoken Word Billboard Awards.

What people are saying: "Bright, fresh and inhected with an understanding of life as it is and as it could be, The Oracle's words on the page leap at the reader with an embrace as an old friend. In performance she is all the more thought provoking, motivating and relevant.  And an experience to be savored and repeated again and again." Larry Carroll, President, Diversified Entertainment Group and former Local/National News Anchor

Students say...

"She makes you feel good about yourself." "When she walks in the room , you know she's there. It's as if a bright white light has been turned on." The ORACLE made me cry because I saw and felt myself in her words.  It was as if I had written then myself. How doeas she know exactly what to say?" "Ms. Cook made us feel like we mattered. Most teachers don't seem to care what teenagers think. Ms. Cook really cared."

Denise L. Cook is a consummate poetess, writer, performer and a wonderful person to know. She is dedicated and committed to excellence in her craft and delivers it with passion and most of all LOVE. Denise has the ability to draw upon her rich heritage, background and experience as an actress, dancer, writer and vocalists to make the connection with her work and her audience. Bring her to your event. Include her and in doing so you will embrace some of the authentic energy she possesses.                       ~. Ernest D. Dillihay
