Celia Leaman

Langley, British Columbia, Canada


Home page:

Celia was raised in Devon, England. After she emigrated to Canada in 1980 she had short stories published in magazines in the UK, Canada and the United States. One of these was translated into brail; another sold to a South African magazine. She also wrote and co-directed a play, performed on Galiano Island, British Columbia.

Celia writes in several genres. Her novel, Mary's Child, the first in the Dartmoor Series, reflects her love and knowledge of the South Devon moors. Both it, and a short story, "Jay, the Farmer's Daughter" (in No More Regrets and Other Stories available from Twilight Times Books) were inspired by the legend of Jay's grave, near where she used to live. There are two sequels to follow Mary's Child: PastPresent I: Awareness, and PastPresent I: Resolution.

Twilight Times Books has also published Unraveled and Deceitful Hags, mainstream, humorous novels spun around the Gulf Islands in British Columbia.

Over the years Celia's interest and focus on writing has grown. She is a tutor for Writer's Online Workshop ( where she interacts with students wishing to focus on the Short Story.

Celia lives in British Columbia with her husband.
