Celia Hayes is a retired military career NCO who writes extensively about the American frontier. She earned a degree in English Literature before an un-slaked taste for adventure and foreign travel led her to enlist in the United States Air Force. She trained as a radio and television broadcast specialist, and served for twenty years in places as various as Greece, Spain, Japan, Korea, Greenland and Ogden, Utah, and in a wide assortment of duties and pleasures which included midnight alt-rock DJ, TV news anchor, video-production librarian, radio and television writer and producer, production manager, tour guide and driving a bright orange Volvo sedan from Athens to Zaragoza, Spain, accompanied only by a small and cranky child. She retired from the military at the exalted rank of Tech-Sergeant (E-6) and began to work in office administration and sales at various San Antonio corporations and small businesses. She is currently the owner of San Antonio’s Watercress Press.

In 2002, she became a regular contributor to the military-oriented weblog, writing essays and commentary on matters historical, personal, political, cultural, literary and military. Besides The Adelsverein Trilogy, she has also written a novel about the Stephens-Townsend wagon party of 1844, To Truckee’s Trail, and a linked pair of novels, Daughter of Texas and Deep in the Heart, about a woman’s life in early and Republic-era Texas. Her most recent book, The Quivera Trail, is about two young Englishwomen in Texas in 1876.
