Book Reviewer & Lecturer
Broward, Palm Beach & Dade Counties
Ronelle Delmont, long-time resident of Greenwich Village, was a newcomer to Florida's book review and lecture circuit when she began an unexpected career in public speaking in 1994.
Her stimulating book and lecture topics are meant to provoke thought and be entertaining at the same time.
A Hunter College dropout more than 30 years ago, Ronelle found a fulfilling career in the antiques business and, later, a love of Middle Eastern music led to another career as a professional belly dancer and teacher.
She now lives in South Florida with Parisian-born husband, Daniel Delmont, an international singer and talent agent. They have four children and two grandchildren.
1995 Ronelle graduated from Florida
International University in Miami with a degree in International Relations.
She had also been a staff writer for the Broward Community College newspaper, "The Observer", and won a 1993 Journalism Award for her coverage of the Ku Klux Klan and the Haitian refugee crisis.
Ronelle publishes a website concerned with the infamous Lindbergh Kidnapping Case of 1932.
Her site is dedicated to Bruno Richard Hauptmann who was unjustly executed for that crime.
Ronelle is writing a book about the case and has been giving lectures throughout Florida based on the latest information and research concerning Charles Lindbergh's probable guilt in the death of his firstborn son.
Her website can be found at
