Celeste Parsons lives outside of Nelsonville in a log house built on a former dairy farm, with her husband
Jim, her Westie dog Spook, and a revolving population of deer, turkeys, chipmunks, hummingbirds, and
other wildlife. She enjoys gardening, anything having to do with fabric or thread, reading, and bicycle
touring with Jim on their tandem bike (64,000 miles since the year 2000, and counting). She is also an
enthusiastic member of the ABC Players and thinks of Stuart’s Opera House as her second home. She
has written poems, plays, technical documentation, and newspaper articles since childhood. This is her
first published book.
