Delmar Burkitt is a retired teacher and school administrator. During his years as an administrator, he also directed high school plays. In addition to his writing, he enjoys swimming and volunteering for the Ohio State Historical Society as a tour guide. He says, “The volunteering gives me an opportunity to bring history to life and to run around in knee breeches and long socks. I will never lose my love for costuming and drama!”
He adds, “It gives me great pleasure to observe directors and actors add their personal touches to my writing to create special performances and memorable characters. I also enjoy the laughter of the audience.”
He has been married to the love of his life, Jeannine, for many years. They are parents of two grown children and the grandparents of two granddaughters.
