I’m Celeste, a writer from New York City living in London. I’m known for unusal storytelling and poetry with a strong narrative, heavy themes and dark humor. I promote introspection, trusting that the shadows inevitably carve a way to the light. From 2013 to 2015 I used to write as Miriam Celeste Ramos and Miriam Lee.

My work has appeared in Shooter Literary Magazine #5, Narratively’s Nostalgic for New York series and their All-Time Best Memoirs list, Barren Magazine, Alternautas, and Juste Milieu’s Issue #9.

My influences include Richard Matheson, Anne Rice, James Baldwin, Rod Serling, Joan Didion, Sara Gran, Nicole Blackman, Maya Angelou, Edgar Allan Poe, Clarissa Pinkola-Estes, Eve Ensler, Angela Carter, Pete Hamill, Steven Millhauser, Chuck Palahniuk, David Fincher, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Park Chan-wook, Alfred Hitchcock and Tarsem.
