New Site!

I am pleased to announce the launch of my new website,, in order to keep everyone posted on what has been happening over the last few months and what will be happening in the months to come.

After signing with the Liza Royce Literary Agency this past year, I have been busy writing and editing my newest novel, The Secret to Hummingbird Cake. It will be released through Thomas Nelson, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, on February 9, 2016, but pre-orders are now being offered on

In addition, JKS Communications has joined our team to assist with the book launch and will announce upcoming appearances soon. I can't wait to get back out there and see everyone again. This will be one crazy year!

Thank you for all of the love and support.

Small Towns...Big Spirits!

    Celeste, just finished your book that my son had you sign for me when you visited The Book Tavern in Augusta, GA. I was so sorry I had a prior commitment or I would have been there to meet you. I loved the book...laughed, cried, shook my head over Carri's questions about God. My cousin was here recently and finished it before I did. She liked it as well. Looking forward to more good books written by you! Thank you for an excellent read. :]

    I just finished The Secret to Hummingbird Cake. I loved it. I cried my eyes out in some places and laughed until I cried in others. Well done. I look forward to reading more of your writing. Thanks.
