Celia Miles

Celia Miles, Appalachian by birth and by choice, has published in a variety of genres (even in the true confessions market) and since retiring as a college English instructor, has written and/or edited nine books:sweet romances set locally and based on herbs and grist mills; Appalachian/historical fiction dealing with a childhood in the 1940s and a woman surviving the chaos of the mid-1800s; collections of short stories set in the south and abroad; anthologies (co-editor: poet Nancy Dillingham) of Western North Carolina women writing about Christmas and clothes.

Her latest novel, set primarily in Orkney, shows a woman’s journey to learn about her husband’s past on the Scottish island where she learns less about him than about herself–Journey to Stenness.
