About the Author

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 twice a widow, she draws strength and courage from her faith. That faith led her to a dream wedding in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. She and her husband said their vows on a terrace above a watering hole teaming with elephants, kudu, zebras, and buffalo. Later, an A Capella group serenaded them with the song, The Lion Sleeps Tonight.  In deference to that idea, lions roared during the entire performance. After spending a month in Africa, Cecilia understood the song's lyrics in a different light. The Lion Sleeps Tonight - So I Hoped (My African Wedding and Honeymoon).

Cecilia didn’t pursue writing seriously until a sequence of odd coincidences (Lions, Why I Write) encouraged her to share some of her life experiences through fiction. As the character, Samuel, states in the movie, The Ghost and the Darkness, “The most improbable events are true.”

An artist (Original Artwork) and author, Cecilia lives in western Idaho close to her childhood home in southeastern Oregon. Known as Oregon’s Outback, this beautiful country and her faith experiences inspired her art and writing. She still prefers sitting creek side opposed to walking through a mall. In her opinion, shopping is about as fun as a trip to the dentist.

Her published works include the Lion and Lambs series, and the stand alone, Without Strings.
