When she moved to Florida, Dellani Oakes had no idea the history was so rich and fascinating. Visiting St. Augustine for the first time, she felt the allure of the country's oldest city. She decided then to write a story based there. It wasn't until nearly 12 years later that 'Indian Summer' took its final form. Dellani is a happily married mother of 4, a substitute teacher, and a former English teacher. When she is not one of the above, she is an avid writer, spending every possible moment immersed in her other worlds. She has also written a series of futuristic romance novels, contemporary romances and short stories.
In an interview with self-publishing site, Smashwords, Dellani, shared, "I've been telling stories since childhood. I started writing short stories in high school and plays in college. I first attempted novel writing in 1988, but I never finished it. Maybe one day. I took up writing as a serious vocation in 2002, when my youngest started kindergarten."
Dellani added, "I had a nomadic childhood. My father was an English professor and we moved a lot. I lived in Tennessee, Ohio, Massachusetts, Texas, Nebraska and Mississippi before coming to Florida. It gave me a wonderful variety of settings and people to choose from in my writing. Under the Western Sky is set in Nebraska in 1976. 'The Ninja Tattoo' takes place in present-day Florida. 'Indian Summer' is set in Florida's past in 1739."
