I began my writing career in 2007 with a twinkle of hope and low expectations. I did not grow up aching to be an author, I was never particularly good in English classes, and I actually failed reading comprehension in middle school.
I am not the poster child for amazing authors.
But I love to read. Love. It.
When I discovered ebooks, I was consumed by the need to read. I devoured every book I could get my hands on and my credit card suffered for it, but books were an amazing escape. I couldn’t get enough. Then I became a reviewer and poured through THOSE books, one after another after another.
That’s when I discovered her. This author captured me with her stories, her plots, her characters… Everything was there in an electronic package and I couldn’t get enough.
After that first book, I turned (via email) to my friend and said, I can do that! She said, yes, you probably can. What can it hurt to try? You’re funny like those characters and you can take some editing classes and stuff. Look at how many books you’ve read! You have to have absorbed some of that, right? I scoffed. Of course.
I didn’t tell her about the fact that I owned a thousand ebooks and couldn’t remember a single plot.
But then I read another book by that author. Another book by her with her hilarious characters and amazing worlds and said screw it, I’ll give it a shot.
I started with a single dream and it’s captured in a sentence that tumbles through my head every time I publish a book: I don’t care about best seller lists, I just want to be a poor man’s Shelly Laurenston.
With luck, someday I’ll meet her, thank her, and hopefully not scare her off with my fangirling.

Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering!
Whitney Wickham is at the darned annual werewolf Gathering all right. Only there’s one problem: she doesn’t belong there. Her sisters carry the Mark indicating they’ll mate an Alpha Pair of wolves, while Whitney does not have that lovely, swirling scar. She’s been hauled half way around the world to be stared at, and not-so-covertly sniffed, for no reason. Unfortunately the gorgeous, drool worthy, magic-mojo-wielding Wardens don’t know why she’s been summoned to the Gathering any more than she does. Which sucks. But at least they’re hot.
Emmett Greene and Levy Walters are Wardens—keepers of the law and embodiment of the magic of the werewolves. They can never mate, never marry, and never form a lasting romantic relationship. It’s a hard and fast law that keeps their powers pure of outside influence.
Rules are going to be broken.
One look at Whitney, one hint of her scent, and they realize their immovable laws might have to jiggle. She’s got luscious curves, a wicked smile, and a mouth that would make a thousand men weep. No matter the rules, their inner wolves will claim her. The only things standing in their way are the Elder Wardens who will do anything… anything… to keep Emmett and Levy from discovering the truth: the laws are wrong. And being with Whitney Wickham is so very, very right.

Ex-dance teacher, former accountant and erstwhile collectible doll salesperson, Celia Kyle now writes paranormal romances for readers who:
1) Like super hunky heroes (they generally get furry)
2) Dig beautiful women (who have a few more curves than the average lady)
3) Love laughing in (and out of) bed.
It goes without saying that there’s always a happily-ever-after for her characters, even if there are a few road bumps along the way.
Today she lives in central Florida and writes full-time with the support of her loving husband and two finicky cats.
