Chance Delgado was born in the UK but has lived in America, Switzerland, Spain, Ireland, the Bahamas, New Zealand, Peru and Mexico. Her first novel: White City Black Rose, is a biotechnology thriller, set in Peru. Before her writing career in editing and journalism, Chance was a recording artist and record producer, with her own recording studio in London. She was also co-founder of her own label and had record deals in several world territories. When she lived in South America, she was working and touring for nearly five years with co-writer/guitarist Chris Little, sometimes playing to audiences of over 50,000 people. Together with Chris she wrote over 140 songs and instrumental pieces and in the 90s they appeared in a sci-fi Hollywood film, where their music was also used as part of the soundtrack.
During her early career, Chance promoted and ran many clubs in London, including working with Paul Bernstock at the legendary White Trash club, and her own Ace of Clubs lesbian club in Piccadilly, London. Prior to music, she had a very successful career in business, worked in Germany, Greece and the US, and was the General Manager of a company in Mayfair, whose turnover exceeded £40 million per year. She has also appeared as expert witness in a trial at the Old Bailey.
Chance writes and edits comedy scripts for a north London comedy collective and is developing a film script with David Feinstein and Gavin Stern. She will also have an exhibition of her art this year at the Space Gallery in Liverpool. Chance is currently working on a large art installation with industrial designer Mark Rokoszynski, and about to finish her second novel.
