Delaney writes novels, short stories and most recently has a memoir published in November 2013, 'Lily and Me in Haut de Cagnes'. It's written from the point of view of a thirteen year old girl.
My mother, Lily and I travel to Europe and settle down in a medieval village in the South of France in the year 1966.
Delaney Henderson was born in France and grew up in 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 studied writing with the ‘Dangerous Writers Group’ on the Oregon Coast while living in Portland, Tom Spanbauer's group 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 and theoretically have more of a potential to emotionally resonate with the reader. A story she developed in this workshop has been published in 'The Author's Gift' a collection of short stories by A-Argus authors. She holds a degree from the Academy of Art University in Fine Art and is also a fine art painter.
'Lily and Me in Haut de Cagnes' has just been published!
