Celina has also been an editor for over a decade, the managing editor at two publishing houses, and the founder/editor of the speculative fiction magazine Penumbra. She is now focused solely on her writing career, and has branched out from traditional speculative fiction into contemporary literary fantasy under the pseudonym CA Chevault.
Celina is married, has two grown daughters and several grandchildren--even though she is entirely too young at her soon-to-be permanent age of 49. Her husband, Shannon, is a computer security analyst, and together they foster abandoned cats and litters, all too often adopting another permanent resident to join the huge catio in the back yard. Celina is a devout fan of Tennessee football, and a regular caller to the Paul Finebaum show on the SEC Network. Aside from writing and reading, she blogs, watches some reality television, and ticks off the neighbors by creating anatomically correct snowmen in the front yard--weather permitting underneath her perpetually flying Volunteers flag. You can find her at the bar every Saturday during college football season, cussing at random television sets--unless she's in Knoxville.
Celina is represented by the Cherry Weiner Literary Agency, and you can check out her website The Cache Vault.
