"rip-roaring read.... What makes Rivenbark’s writing so entertaining is that it’s a lot like seeing a stand-up comedy act: she does an uncanny job of keeping the flow of comedy fresh." - Book Reporter in regards to her newst book, 'You Don't Sweat Much For A Fat Girl.'
Celia, an award-winning nationally syndicated humor columnist and author, was born and raised just up the road in Duplin County, NC.  Her weekly column can be found in the Sunday edition of the News & Observer.
