 My name is Divon Delgado born and raised in San Antoni o, Texas. I am a Creative Artist, 5x Published Author, Voice-Over, Actor, Model, Composer, Humanitarian, and Child Advocate.  Fragrances line owner of “Sexy Back & Besame Bebe". I have received an acknowledgment letter from The White House Signed by President Obama and First Lady for my first my book. There are so many wonderful things I would like to share with you. 

                                First, let me tell you a little about myself. I have an accounting diploma and studied in the Psychology program field. One of my many passions is giving back to our community as a humanitarian.  Another way I do that is by doing pro bono work in counseling for friends and family.

                 Previously, I worked as a "Court Appointed Special Advocate" volunteer for the National C.A.S.A association. The cases that I was appointed to were handled with my utmost respect. It was an opportunity for me to participate in the judicial system hands on. C.A.S.A is the liaison in making decisions for the best interest of the child. By also working closely with the dedicated staff at DFPS – Texas Child Protective Services (CPS). I still keep in touch with both agencies to continue my efforts to help save the children.

               Public speaking at the Valero Energy Corporation, The Salvation Army Hope Center, and many other companies give me a chance to interact with victims for encouragement. I am always ready to share my story and experiences to educate the world on abuse. Public speaking has given me the desire to reach a broader audience.  I have done several lectures and book readings at different locations. Traveling all around the world to spread my message: As a child no one fought for me because of that "I am the voice of the children!"

                I was also the 2011-2013 Media Chair with JDRF a non-profit organization in search of a cure for Diabetes. I did have my own Team called "Divon's Advocates" that would walk/5k run for the cure at each event.

               Plus, I was working as a "Child Specialist" for a State non-profit agency March 2014-December 2016. This continues my work with children that have been abused. Children understand the difference in just working their case and actually caring what happens to them while in the State’s care to beyond. When it comes to children it takes a whole team to come together in the best interest of each child. I am truly proud to be a part of this process of rebuilding self-worth.

                 I hope you enjoy your visit to DivonVille.com. Look out for me at my book lectures, on films, TV shows, music videos or commercials. Tell all your friends and family to stop on by to see what new things I am working on. Thank you so much for your support of my creative aspirations.

Let's get started!

What are your favorite TV shows, films, novels and did they in any way inspire you whilst writing your latest/last book?
Mar 13, 12:32PM EDT1

Yes, matter in fact there was a lot of things that came to play to inspire my books. My first book "Survival and Redemption" is my true-life story. It was a book that had to be written to help others that have been or are still being sexual, physical abuse. To give the victims a voice that I soon after became for them and still do advocate. That book, inspired by watching Oprah tv show and being so upset that no fought or helped them many years prior.  Then my mom just worrying about my sisters instead of me being hurt. My children books were inspired all by my own babies’ doggies, so each of them has their own real story that I made in to 3 book series. The National Bestseller Book "My Demon World", I was inspired by the great Steven King movies and books. Plus, my own loss of my 1st grandma Mary; that I had just known for only 4 years of my adult life. The death of her and months before asking for me to visit her several times; which left me in a dark place. Due to that I decided to leave out of the country to Ecuador and Peru for 15 days, when I returned that book was written to life.

What do you think sets apart fiction from non-fiction to you?
Mar 13, 5:20AM EDT1

What sets apart Fiction from Non-fiction for me is plain and simple, the fact if the story is real or not simply made up? I personally like to cross in the middle and like my Horror book "My Demon World" is Non-fiction.  I did add some real information to the story to make it more believable for my readers. Thanks for the question and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado

Mar 20, 2:53PM EDT1
In what ways have you seen your books help others?
Mar 13, 5:17AM EDT1

First of all, that is a very important and personally meaningful question to answer for me. Well, my first book "Survival and Redemption" my life story is about; I was three years old when I first met my abuser. Mental, physical and sexual abuse was my everyday HELL that I now was living. I was raped, beaten, and strangled with a phone cord. After abuse was told my mother abandoned me. The devil bought her a house, car and gave money to get rid of me. My mother started revenge plots against me. I once wanted my abuser dead for all he did to me but God helped me to forgive him with all my heart. Picking up the pieces I saw the light and this made me stronger to fight for others that don't have a voice. No one fought for me as a child because of that I will be the voice for others. Especially helped others when I get feedback from my readers in person at one of my public readings or over social media how they don't feel alone anymore, know now how to forgive to move on, and given them bravery with courage to say NO MORE, etc. Thanks for the questions and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado

Mar 20, 3:04PM EDT1
What advice would you like to give to a writer afraid of facing criticism or hurting feelings of their desire to share their personal stories?
Mar 13, 2:38AM EDT1

My advice would be the same I told myself about my chilling terrifying story, that deep down I was going to hurt so many family by simply telling the truth. How they let a child (me) back then down by not helping out by silencing the abuse. Anna, I made it clear to myself that my story needs to be written to help others no matter how embarrassing, hurtful to myself or others this truthful book would bring to light. I hope that made sense to you since I am not sure what you are thinking about writing but If I can help please contact me.  Thanks for the questions and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado

Mar 20, 3:13PM EDT1
What KPIs would you recommend to report on social media efforts?
Mar 10, 4:23PM EST1

Social media can help and hurt at the same time depending what was put out for the world to view. Many of us, and organizations use KPIs at multiple levels to evaluate our success at reaching target audience for usually increase of business with them. I use so many social media and other platforms to continue learning and seeing what works for my business brand. Simply trial and error I say. Thanks for the questions and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado

Mar 20, 3:24PM EDT1
Which social media success tracking tools do you utilise for your show and why have you chosen these?
Mar 10, 3:40PM EST1

My tv show "Guilty Pleasure" is on so many social media and other platforms. The great thing anyone can keep down loading and sharing the link. I am waiting for my next one but I want it even better than the last one so Its taking longer in time to produce. Thanks for the questions and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado

Mar 20, 3:34PM EDT1
What do you believe is the importance of social media?
Mar 10, 3:30PM EST1

The importance of social media to me is connecting with my audience, family, friends, supporters near and far. Sometimes it's too much and lack of time to contact each person than just do a mass social media message I think. Thanks for the questions and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado

Mar 20, 3:37PM EDT1
Where did you find your sources of inspiration and how did you start creating perfume?
Mar 10, 2:02PM EST1

The sources of inspiration on creating my fragrances "Sexy Back" and "Besame bebe" was a story many years ago.  Well, my team was hired by one of my celebrity Grammy Award winner friends to make the scents for them. I created 4 males and 4 females all with unique combined notes with the same vision of smell I wanted to bring to the world. Unfortunately, people and things come in-between greatness. They still don’t have a fragrance out.  I on the other hand picked one of each plus changed the names and brought them out under my name since I created the aromas together with my contracted manufacturing company.  I wanted to make the woman’s floral, sexy, clean, seducing scent and the males clean, crisp, sexy bold with a note to help hide odor if they smoke. I also wanted to have them unisex since I love to wear men and woman fragrances too. Thanks for the questions and please support www.divonville.com & Divonville Books Store. - Divon Delgado
