Celina Grace

Celina Grace a full time indie author, Top 100 UK Amazon bestseller & host of the Indie Author School.

She is UK-based and wrote her first book – The Blue Ruby – at age 7.

Celina experimented with screenplays, scripts and short stories and then had a very long and frustrating journey trying to get traditionally published.

This was in spite of achieving 3rd place in the 2004 Lit Idol competition, being shortlisted for the 2006 Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Award and longlisted in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.

So Celina decided to go it alone with indie publishing and – despite making £10 in her first week – everything changed for her in an incredible way when she made that decision … she’s a full time indie author and a Top 100 UK Amazon bestseller.
