Award-Winning Novelist, Speaker & Journalist

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Anjanette Delgado Biography

Anjanette Delgado is an award-winning novelist, speaker, and journalist who has written or produced for media outlets such as NBC, CNN, NPR, Univision, HBO and Vogue Magazine’s Latam and Mexico divisions, and for Telemundo, among others. She’s covered presidential coups, elections, the Olympics, both Iraq wars and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Early in her career, Delgado became fascinated with heartbreak, the different ways in which it occurs, and the consequences it brings. Her human-interest television series “Madres en la Lejanía” won an Emmy award for its depiction of Latina mothers working as undocumented nannies in the United States, while living with the consequences of having left their own children behind in search of a better life.

Her original screenplay for HBO, "Good in Bed," was a thesis on the life moments in which sex, love, identity, self, and society collide.

Her first novel, "The Heartbreak Pill," about a modern-day Latina enmeshed in a battle between her brain and her heart, won first prize at the Latino International Book Award for Best Romance in English, was a Triple Crown Winner for Best Romance Book in Spanish in 2010, and first prize for Best Romance in Latino Literacy’s “Books into Movies” competition in 2011.

"The Clairvoyant of Calle Ocho" is Delgado’s latest novel. Set in vibrant Little Havana, it tells the story of Mariela Esteves, a woman whose choice to renounce her true calling results in two failed marriages, a brush with murder, and a lot of heartbreak. It was released in the Fall of 2014. Both novels have also been optioned for film and television.

Delgado has an MFA in Creative Writing from Florida International University and was admitted as a contributor to the prestigious Bread Loaf Writing Conference in 2013 and in the upcoming 2014 session. She teaches writing at the Miami International Book Fair’s Florida Literacy Arts Center.

Speaking Topics
  • Writing Protest

    Writing as a way to excavate and transform our DNA, and making our silent protests public in productive ways.

  • Hispanic Heritage Month Themes

    Identity and the importance of telling our stories.

  • Finish Your Novel the TV Way

    The next time you’re wondering how you’ll ever get through the writing of a novel, think about TV producers and writers of original series and even non-fiction shows. They pretty much have to see the whole thing in their heads, and process it all into a readable “series bible” before they can get a green light. Learn to think like the TV executive who sees it, feels it and believes in it, and get your novel written!

  • Social Media for People With a Life

    Who has time to post on every social media platform, research "engaging content," and upload photos and videos, never mind to answer user comments, while tweeting and retweeting for your book, organization, or business.

    The truth is that we all do and we all can. The secret is strategy. This course will teach you how to create a doable social media strategy for your small business. One that you will be able to maintain in very little time. The result will be a community of loyal customers, true fans, and friends (instead of circumstantial, inactive, "likers" and followers), and more time for your business.
