Spotlight On… A.J. York

Hello everyone! This feature will not be a regular one, but is a substitute for my Indie Showcase as I’m not able to fully prepare a showcase at the moment. I hope that you enjoy this spotlight on author A.J. York instead!

Who is A.J. York?

About me? Well, I am the author of The Delilah Dusticle Adventures, a middle grade fantasy series. I grew up in the UK, but was born in Gothenburg, Sweden. My childhood influences were a mix of Pippi Longstocking and The Flumps.

Things I like? Swedish cinnamon buns, yoga, tea, salt liquorice, sleeping on boats, compassion and other people’s creativity. Things I do not like? Okra. The vegetable is also known as ladies fingers, which makes them even less appetising to me. Blah!

I have always enjoyed making up characters and their life stories, therefore I jumped at the chance to study theatre at the University of Brighton. I later trained as a drama teacher and I have a Master’s degree from Goldsmiths University of London. I have gone back to my roots and I now live in Gothenburg. People have told me they love reading my stories and I hope you have fun reading them too!

Delilah Dusticle is a charming tale about a girl who can magic away dust. When she falls in love with the son of her rich patrons, Delilah’s heart is broken when he returns from a trip with a fiancée. As her dust powers turn against her – causing her to create dust rather than make it disappear – Delilah is turned out of the house and forced to fend for herself. A chance encounter in the park leads to an unlikely friendship and slowly, Delilah gets her life back. A charming tale of friendship and love.
