About Having Our Say and the Delany Sisters:

If you're looking for information about the Delany Sisters, you've found the right person. I am happy to help. The sisters are both gone now, and have been for some years, but they left me in charge of their legacy. Thus, I'm the go-to person when it comes to rights, or if you have a question about Having Our Say, photographs, their story, or their place in history. I can, also, answer questions about the play (1995) and telefilm (1999), both of which are adaptations of the book. I was an advisor and consultant on both productions. If you can't find my original 1991 New York Times story about the Delany Sisters, which started the whole ball rolling, let me know and I will send it to you. You may reach me by sending a direct email using the coontact form on this page. Additional information about the Delany Sisters can be found, also, by clicking "Books" in the main menu, then "Having Our Say."

      Client Testimonial:


     "As a debut author I reached out to Amy Hill Hearth for a consultation. She guided me to improve my manuscript and encouraged me with detailed references to strong scenes, plot arcs, character development and pinpointed some that needed attention. Her support and specific advice helped me to believe that my story had value and started me on my author's journey with a published and award winning historical novel."  


     - Eileen Harrison Sanchez, Author of Freedom Lessons - A Novel
