About Delia Ray

[Speaking of her childhood home and experiences...] "With so many sparks to set my imagination Delia Rayon fire, maybe I was bound to become a writer. In elementary school my best friend and I wrote for fun, churning out co-authored booklets of poetry, a novel about a witch named Agatha that filled up an entire spiral notebook, and our own version of Greek myths with made-up gods and goddesses.  Creative writing and literature continued to be my favorite courses throughout high school, then college at the University of Virginia.

...Now I live in Iowa City, Iowa with my husband and three daughters. The office where I write looks down on a bend in a river.  Although my house isn't very old, we have eight acres to explore and plenty of woods for fort-building. I've also spotted a few places in the woods that look as if a metal detector might turn up a treasure or two."  (From the author's web site)
