The Answer is in Your Handwriting  is a take on Dear Abbey but with a twist; Dear Dena answers the writer’s question from what she sees in the handwriting. The reader not only enjoys an advice type letter, but learns handwriting analysis in an easy way as each trait is pointed out.  Most importantly, she is sensitive and compassionate, giving hope and encouragement , while conveying a New Age spiritual understanding of the writer’s problem or situation; basically, that we are souls inhabiting a body, here for a purpose, and our negative thoughts are powerful “prayers”—so we must watch our thoughts!

Interspersed throughout the book are personal vignettes on relationships, compatibilities, personnel selection and vocational guidance—together with Dear Dena’s on those subjects.  Interested since sixteen, Dena finally became a certified graphoanalyst in 1974 from the International Graphanalysis Society (Headquarters in Chicago).  Previously, Her Dear Dena column could be seen in Santa Barbara and Seattle; today it is in the Canadian magazine True Blue Spirit.

Of all “how-to” methods of teaching handwriting, this book is unique —the reader discovers the answer to one’s “Dear Dena” question is simply within oneself, in the unconscious—the knowledge of graphoanalysis—the bonus.


Should I switch jobs? What is my true calling? Should I give up my passions for money?

In this, the final volume in her handwriting series, Blatt analyzes handwriting to identify the positive and negative traits that tend to help or hamper one in achieving his or her goals. For some their handwriting may indicate a need to change careers,; for others, to forge ahead in their current professions. Some know what career they want but may fail due  to emotional problems, while others wrestle with the conflict between financial security and pursuing their passions, or struggle to balance career and family. Included near the end is a chapter on personal selection, with tips for both employers and employees, as well as a brief study of the handwriting of well-known personalities and what it says about their career choices.

Dena’s ability to “see” a person’s characteristics, strengths, and traits from a sample of the handwriting is outstanding. From the work she did many years ago in my class at Santa Barbara College, I had not seen her make an incorrect analysis of a person’s interest, career goals, personality or character.  Her skills with people allow her to touch and teach in such a way that we all learn and yet feel safe. — Larry Farwell, Social Change Consultant.
