Celia Rees Book and Novel

Celia Rees - Author


Celia Rees was born and went to school in Solihull, in the West Midlands. She now lives in Leamington Spa with her husband and teenage daughter, Catrin. After gaining a degree in History and Politics from Warwick University, she taught English in comprehensive schools in Coventry for seventeen years. It was during this time that she began to write. Celia’s first book was published in 1993, a thriller for teenagers.

Celia now divides her time between writing, talking to readers in schools and libraries, and teaching creative writing on the University of Warwick’s Open Studies Programme. She writes for older children and teenagers and gets her inspiration from the world around her: newspaper stories, people she meets, places she visits. Celia particularly likes museums and art galleries. She first had the idea for Witch Child on a trip to the American museum near Bath.
