A Writing, Design, and Publishing House
At the crossroads of Conundrum and Juxtaposition,
House of Waxing Blue tells the stories others won't.
WRITING & EDITING
Daphne Minks Daly
Writer + Publisher + Gen X'er +
I've always been willing to explore the ugly, honest side of life through my work. I'm a Gen X'er who lived through the Satanic Panic era of the '80s and a stalking ordeal spanning nearly three decades. Over the years, I felt a deep passion for curating and preserving true stories developing. After surviving my own real-life horror movie, my passion for truthful storytelling has only intensified. In 2017, Waxing Blue opened as a graphic design and writing service. However, in January of 2021, the company ventured into the magazine publishing space with Derailed Magazine. Most recently, Waxing Blue added ghostwriting to our repertoire, with a focus on unique content and biographies. I currently reside in Joshua Tree, California, with my partner, David, and our two bulldog sons, Pendleton & King. I'm an avid DIY'er, a music connoisseur, and a budding screenwriter.
