ABOUT DAL CECIL RUNO

 

Dal Cecil Runo is a partially blind author of fiction and poetry. Before entering the world of writing, Dal was an independent singer/songwriter under another stage name and a blind photographer with a few exhibits across Europe. Dal is currently working on a science fiction trilogy and short stories in multiple genres. As a writer with a disability, it is a priority for Dal to include blind, visually impaired and/or other characters with disabilities in every piece of fiction. The inclusion of LGBTQ+ and multicultural characters is also of importance in all of Dal’s work.

She has lived in and travelled to several countries. Ice-skating in winter, and listening to audiobooks are some of Dal’s favourite pastimes. She can be found on most social media as DalCecilRuno.
