Stefanie DeLeo is a published playwright and novelist. She has a Master’s Degree in Theatre from New York University and had lived and worked in South Africa for two and a half years with the Peace Corps. Her first play, Worth a Thousand Words was published in 2010, which addresses themes of art as a means of communication as seen through the lens of an autistic child. Her novel, Cry My Safari was inspired by a trip to Kenya and tackles themes of racism and economic inequalities spanning two continents. Though a New York City native, she recently relocated to Nashville, where she teaches 12th grade English. She has been a guest at comic cons all over the US and Europe and loves running panels on how to navigate the publishing industry as well as the legality of publishing fan fiction.
