Celia Lake spends her days as a librarian in the Boston (MA) metro area, and her nights and weekends at home happily writing, reading, and researching. Born and raised in Massachusetts to British parents, she naturally embraced British spelling, classic mysteries, and the Oxford comma before she learned there were any other options.
Celia has lived in Minnesota, and Maine, before returning to Massachusetts in 2015. She lives with one cat, quite a few books, and occasional knitting projects. Her Albion books about the magical community of Great Britain are set between 1900 and the late 1920s and explore everything from staffroom romance to art forgery.
