When not traversing the imaginary worlds she creates in her fairy tales and fantasy stories, Cela Day lives in a tiny cottage with her husband and a great number of plants, all of which (“whom?” she adds hopefully) have names. She loves to read as much as she loves to write, and believes reading The Chronicles of Narnia cover-to-cover countless times during childhood taught her more about English grammar and readable syntax than any English class she ever attended. In addition to C.S. Lewis, she also loves works by J.R.R. Tolkien, John Bunyan, G.K. Chesterton, and Flannery O’Connor.

In recent years she’s especially enjoyed discovering up-and-coming fantasy and fairy tale authors in the indie community. To the best of her ability (and budget limitations) she is committed to encouraging other Christian writers, in particular, to develop their talent.

Although she no longer has time to do more than remember them fondly, past pursuits include embroidery, crochet, and drawing countless “architectural” renderings of the castle of her dreams, which will most certainly feature many southern-facing windows for her plants, as well as a lush meadow for Talking Horses.
