Celia Hayes was brought up in an eccentric, baby-boom family, and earned a degree in English before a thirst for adventure led her to enlist in the USAF. She trained as a radio/television broadcaster, and served in a wide assortment of duties. Her Texas frontier adventure, the "Adelsverein Trilogy" - the story of the German colonies in the Texas Hill Country - is available on Amazon, in local Texas bookstores and in many local libraries. "Daughter of Texas" and "Deep in the Heart" follow the life of an woman pioneer in the early days of Texas, and the eventful years of the Republic of Texas. Her next book, "The Quivera Trail" will follow the adventures of an English lady who marries a Texas cattleman in 1876 and follows him to the still-restless frontier.
