Delaney Henderson was born in France and grew up in the West Los Angeles in Malibu Canyon. She relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area where she has lived most of her adult life except for two years in Portland Oregon. She currently lives and works in Berkeley, California.
Delaney currently is focusing on writing a book about a young girl and her mother living and traveling in France in the 1960s.
Delaney studied writing with the ‘Dangerous Writers Group’ on the Oregon Coast while living in Portland and credits the group as being influential in her approach to writing. The idea is to write about those things which may be difficult or uncomfortable which theoretically have more of a potential to emotionally resonate with the reader. She holds a degree from the Academy of Art University in Fine Art and is also a fine art painter.
Delaney has traveled to Europe, Morocco, Canada and Mexico and lived in France for several months at age 13. The book she is currently working on, while fiction, is set in France and based on her experiences living there as a young girl.
'The Authors' Gift' is out on A-Argus books. All the proceeds from the book will be going to 'Reach out and Read', a children's literacy charity.
