Puzzles by Denise

Close up of a word search puzzle and a pencil

I have written puzzles for several decades. I have produced quite a few themed puzzle books for groups such as the RSCPA, the Royal Flying Doctors Service, and the Alice Springs School of the Air. My syndicated puzzles have appeared in publications around the world. I create everything from picture puzzles like mazes and dot-to-dots, to find-a-words, codes and cryptograms, and cryptic crosswords.

My work is syndicated through Auspac Media, and available at The Clue Detective Puzzle Agency.


Free puzzles

You are welcome to download these puzzles and use them in the classroom, at home, or in not-for-profit newsletters. I have divided them into rough difficulty categories, but you will be the best judge of what you, your family, or students are able to enjoy. The easier level puzzles are also great for adults who are learning English.
