Life doesn't follow a script and thorns lurk beneath the rose petals, but faith heals all wounds. Cecilia knows these truths intimately. A survivor of domestic violence and widowed twice, she draws strength and courage from her faith. That faith was rewarded with a dream wedding in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
Cecilia, an author and artist, lives in western Idaho, close to her childhood home in southeastern Oregon, known as Oregon's Outback. This beautiful country, and her faith experiences, inspires her art and writing. She still prefers sitting creek side opposed to walking through a mall. In her opinion, shopping ranks just above a trip to the dentist.
Although Cecilia wrote her first book at the age of twelve, she didn't pursue writing seriously until a sequence of odd coincidences encouraged her to share her faith experiences through stories. (See: Lions, Why I Write)
Her published works include the Lions and Lambs series, and the stand alone, Without Strings.
