Only in her 30s, Cecelia has achieved a lot in such a short space of time. At the ripe age of 21, and shortly after completing her degree in Journalism and Media Communications, she wrote her most famous novel to date: PS. I Love You. The book catapulted her into the spotlight - it was an international bestseller and was adapted as a motion picture in 2007, starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler. Her second book, Where Rainbows End (in the US it is known as Love, Rosie), was also a number one bestseller in the UK and Ireland.
Other novels written by Cecelia include If You Could See Me Now and A Place Called Here. Her books seem to strike a chord on a worldwide scale; they are published in 46 countries with over 15 million copies sold. She has also co-created a hit US comedy series - Samantha Who? - and Love, Rosie has been made into a movie due for release this year. Cecelia has made charity contributions using the royalties from her short stories, including Ladies' Night and Irish Girls are Back in Town, and lives in Dublin with her husband, daughter and son.
