An exclusive interview with Celia Collier.

Where do you live?


Where can people write to you?


What inspires you to write?

My deep love of Scotland and my own Scottish roots are the basis for the majority of my stories. My Uncle Harvey, God rest his beautiful soul, was the one who made me aware that the name "Dunbar" was more than just a name. Through him and his devotion to the Clan, I learned so much about myself and my family. I was very lucky to actually visit the land of mist and heather; A land where the terrain and weather have never changed since its creation. Gazing at the steep mountains covered in mist, I could almost imagine a band of kilted warriors charging down the mountain to capture their prey. The history seeps into your bones and conquers your soul so you can feel their presence...just out of sight....just out of reach of reality...the one you can feel but never quite see. That was my one and only trip "across the pond" but the impact of the adventure will live in my soul forever and this love of family; love of a land worth dying for, is what I strive to create in my stories.

What's your average writer's day like?

I sit down, open a document and start typing. I plan nothing. I plot nothing. The stories and characters come to me and bug the daylights out of me until I listen to them and put their words on paper.

Tell us about your family.

Family? Well, let's put it this way; I have a husband, and two teenagers. Need I say more?

Do you have pets?

My first "love" was Lady, an Australian Shephard/Chow mix. I dislike chows so thankfully she looks more like the Australin Shephard. She is a beautiful, rust colored dog that I saved from the animal shelter. My newest addition is Seamour, a little spoiled miniature Schnauzer. I bought him for stud purposes and the breeder had already named him. Since he was the first to open his eyes, was the runt, and figured he'd be used for breeding, he would get to "see more" hiney. I liked the name, so I kept it. I also have a Cockatiel whose proper name is Pretty Boy but who probably thinks his name is "Shut-Up". (Afore mentioned husband and teenagers.) He's pretty mellow but likes to show off when we have visitors and will whistle "Pop Goes The Weasle". I'm talking the entire verse, not just the last bit here. I want to get him to do the whistle theme from the Andy Griffith show, but that hasn't happened yet.

What are your hobbies?

Gardening, Egg Crafts and other general crafts. The eggs are totally cool to make, and the shells are a lot thicker than you think. The first one I did I used an Emu egg and kept thanking God I had ordered one already cut. I did it up for my Mom for Christmas in relation to one of my books. It's really cool, and relaxing, but trying to cut those eggs...they stink!

What do you do in your leisure time?


Who's your favorite author?

Virginia Henley

What's your favorite book?

A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux

What's your favorite movie?

Ever After

What's your favorite place to visit?

Scotland. But since I can't afford to go there as often as I'd like, I'd chose my bedroom and laptop.

Where would you like to visit that you haven't visited yet?


What's your favorite music?

Celtic, Classic Rock (Def Leppard!!)

Anything else you'd like to tell us?

Yeah, buy my books! My daughter is going to college and both kids need braces. <G> Seriously, I believe people who write do not chose to do so...writing chooses them. It's the voice in your head (at least I HOPE other people hear voices) that nag at you and refuse to give you a moments rest until you pay them some attention. Characters hate to be ignored. Read what you enjoy and if you write, write what you enjoy. It's a bit like doing a craft. It looks difficult until you give it a try and learn how to do it, then it's not so difficult anymore. If you never try anything in life, you will never realize your full potential.
