Celise Downs


Thanks for visiting the little corner of the online universe occupied by me, young adult fiction author, Celise Downs.

On this site, I highly encourage:

  1. Keeping secrets (cuz you’re so good at that)
  2. Dancing your butt off (no matter who’s watching)
  3. Kissing (but keep it clean)
  4. Snitching (only when it counts)
  5. Subscribing (cuz you’re curious. Admit it)
  6. Winning (you might get lucky)
  7. And most of all, reading (it can be addicting)
