Celu is of mixed Cherokee and Scots-Irish ancestry. Celu Amberstone was one of the only young people in her family to take an interest in learning Traditional Native crafts and medicine ways. This made several of the older members of her family very happy while annoying others. Legally blind since birth, she has defied her limitations and spent much of her life avoiding cities. Moving to Canada after falling in love with a Métis-Cree man from Manitoba, she has lived in the rain forests of the west coast, a tepee in the desert and a small village in Canada's artic. Along the way she managed to also acquire a BA in cultural anthropology and an MA in health education. For the past 10 years she has been a frequent contributor to the SF Canada professional writers website.

The Dreamer's Legacy is truly an interesting book. It takes a familiar story of the colonization of Indigenous people, and gives it a new and exotic twist. Celu Amberstone has fashioned a truly original take on aboriginal storytelling - it teaches, entertains, and mystifies. - Drew Hayden Taylor (The Night Wanderer: A Native Gothic Novel, Motorcycles and Sweetgrass) An original and gripping story. Amberstone transports us to a sad, wild land that is not of our world to tell a heart-warming story from another culture and another time - Dave Duncan (The Seventh Sword, A Man of His Word, A Handful of Men) Merges the mythic aboriginal world with the grim realities of cultural disintegration. The Dreamer's Legacy is a compelling read - Eileen Kernaghan (Wild Talent: a Novel of the Supernatural)
