Hello there and welcome to my website!

I'm Delia Pitts, author of the Ross Agency mystery series, including Lost and Found in Harlem and Practice the Jealous Arts. I have just published a new book about private eye SJ Rook and his friends. It's called Black and Blue in Harlem. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as the previous stories.


Right now I'm working on a fourth story called Pauper and Prince in Harlem. To give you a special preview of this new story, I've included the first chapter at the end of eBook and print versions of Black and Blue in Harlem. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek at the story I'm working on right now. In the meantime, feel free to explore the neighborhood. I'd love to hear from you.  


All the best,
