Nice to meet you!


Celesta Rimington

Celesta has lived in nearly every region of the United States, and she spent her childhood discovering the delights of Nebraska sunsets, Wyoming rodeos, California beaches, and Alabama southern cooking. Her enthusiasm for writing truly ignited when she was ten years old and living in Tornado Alley, waiting out rainstorms and tornado sirens by writing short stories. Celesta holds a degree in Sociology from Brigham Young University and is a graduate of The Institute of Children’s Literature. She’s a musical theater performer, an elephant advocate, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She lives in the Rocky Mountains with her husband and two children, where they have a miniature railroad with a rideable steam train. Celesta loves to visit with students online and in the schools!

The Elephant’s Girl helped us introduce and explore contemporary issues with our kids like mixed/blended families, animal care and rights, cultural awareness, and above all, the importance and power of friendship and love.
