Deleyna is the proud mother of 3 energetic children. She tends to collect additional children the way most people collect stray cats. Of late, she has the cats as well.
Her passion has been writing since she could hold a pencil. While that is a cliche', she is unique in that her first novel was written on gum wrappers. As a young woman, she learned to program and discovered that she has a talent for helping people and computers learn to work together and play nice. When she's not playing with her daughter, writing, or designing for the internet, she can be found wandering the local beaches.
Deleyna graduated from Santa Clara University with a BA in English/Creative Writing, a Minor in Anthropology and a Minor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
Deleyna worked as a programmer, a pre-school teacher, a tour-guide, a planner and even as a NASA minion. She left the working world to follow her calling to motherhood and writing.
