Delia Strange

DeliaStrangeDelia Strange has always had a love affair with books. As a child, the bookshelf couldn’t be filled quick enough and stories were read over and over. Trips to the library yielded gifts far superior to the latest expensive gadget toy as seen on TV. Once Delia became the creator of stories, nothing gave her more pleasure than writing them, until she started sharing them.

Throughout her working life, Delia has held a variety of jobs that have each contributed to where she is now, though (perhaps ironically) she is a not a great believer of destiny. She worked as a clerk at a printing company, as a publishing assistant for a micro-publisher, as a graphic designer for an advertising firm and as a website designer for a retailer. Disregarding the four year stint she had as a motorcycle instructor, all of these jobs have compounded into an assortment of skills that are very handy for an independent author to have.

Delia Strange was born in picturesque New Zealand and moved to tropical Australia, where she lives with her husband and daughter and is thinking about getting a cat.
