About the Author

Celia Hayes is passionately interested in the history of the American frontier. She was brought up in an eccentric, baby-boom family which formed the basis of her memoir Our Grandpa Was an Alien. She earned a degree in English and served for 20 years in the US Air Force. In 2002 she became a regular contributor to the military oriented weblog “The Daily Brief” at

Her first novel, To Truckee’s Trail grew out of a fascination with the California emigrant trail. The Adelsverein Trilogy, and its’ companion novels, Daughter of Texas and Deep in the Heart drew upon an interest in the German settlements in the Texas Hill Country and the dramatic sweep of history in the Lone Star State.
