Marjorie DeLuca spent her childhood in the beautiful and ancient cathedral city of Durham in North-Eastern England. Later, she graduated from the University of London, then immigrated to Canada where she lives with her husband and two children. She spent much of her professional life as a teacher, specializing in English Literature and Creative Writing. She studied Advanced Creative Writing at the University of Manitoba with her mentor, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Carol Shields, and subsequently received several major Manitoba Arts Council grants for the development of her novels. After leaving teaching to write full time, she worked as a script consultant, collaborating on several TV pilots and a musical. She also successfully self-published three novels, two of which, The Pitman’s Daughter (historical literary fiction) and The Forever Ones (YA Sci-Fi) have already hit Amazon bestseller lists. Her most recent novel, Unnatural, is set in Victorian England and merges fact with fiction in the story of a childless woman on the edge of insanity and her fascination with the case of a notorious female serial poisoner.
