Ofira Sephiroth, born in Washington, Pennsylvania in 1975, is the middle-child of five. After earning an Associates' Degree in Business Administration from Penn Commercial Business, Inc. (1995), she worked in a bank and then briefly as a secretary.
In 1999, Ofira relocated to Louisville, Kentucky where she currently resides with her sister, C. R. Stone, and two pets. In 2002, Ofira received a Diploma with Highest Honors in Astrology/Parapsychology from Stratford Career Institute.
The writing stage of Ofira's life began in 2001. Working mainly with poetry and song lyrics, she began turning her attention to music, her first passion. Forming Mortis de Serpentis Productions in 2006, Ofira began composing Electronic music under the pseudonym Lady Venom. In early 2009, she teamed up with her sister, under the pen name Pia Zellini, to form the writing team of Delgado Zellini.
In 2007, Ofira published the first volume of Unspeakable Truths (Damnation Begins). Versified Darkness was published in 2008. The second volume of Unspeakable Truths, Baptism By Blood, was published in 2009. Two of Ofira's poems were previously published in The Velvet Paradox by Jonathan Martin (2006).
Ofira is currently working on This Tryst (her first book of erotic poetry), the final volume of Unspeakable Truths, the second volume of the Versified series, Separate Frames (devoted to flash fiction) and various eBooks.
When not writing or composing music, Ofira enjoys bowling, spending time with pets and watching horror movies.
