Delizhia Jenkins


I first discovered my love of writing in the third grade, after having to transition to a life living with my grandmother while my mother completed her time in the military. By the end of my fifth grade year I spent quite a few of my days writing short stories, but never contemplating the idea of actually becoming a writer. Fast forward to adulthood, after a series of ups and downs, the desire to breathe life into characters having never left, I wrote my first full length novel entitled, Love at Last in 2013. After that, the invisible, and incessant Muse kept her awake many a night, propelling me to write my first science fiction fantasy novel, Nubia Rising: The Awakening; and in 2014 I self published both Love at Last and Nubia Rising: The Awakening. Since then, I have self published three additional books: Viper The Vampire Assassin, Sin: Daughter of the Grim Reaper, and Blind Salvation. Self publishing has given me the tools needed to understand the publishing world; to understand that there is much more to simply writing the story and praying that others will read it. I am looking forward to publishing more stories in 2016, so much so that new characters haunt me even in my dreams, begging me to put pen to paper. I cannot wait to see what the next chapter in my life will bring.
