Muslim Writers Publishing was established in 2006 by Linda Delgado, the author of the Islamic Rose series. Ms. Delgado saw a need for quality fiction books written for the growing Muslim population in the United States. She ran the business and performed the services at her own expense in order to support Muslim English-language writers, who are a sort of fledgling class in an emerging genre. In early 2013, Ms. Delgado passed the business to Debora McNichol.
