Celine Zabel has written professionally, in connection with her work as a CPA, for over thirty years. She enjoys public speaking and teaching classes on subjects that she is passionate about. As a result of her experiences during the last nineteen years within a dismissive, ineffective, and broken legal system, Zabel has become a professional mediator. With a love of reading, cooking, piano, travel, skiing, hiking, and bike riding, she is truly happiest seeing her experiences helping others. Her debut work, Lives Shattered: One Mother’s Loss at the Hands of the Legal System, is based on her life. Zabel currently lives in Evergreen, Colorado.
An incredible tale of survival, this shocking story shows how one woman overcame soul-crushing pain and loss at the hands of an inept legal system while refusing to leave hope behind. Lives Shattered: Second Edition includes growing up in Iowa during the 50's and 60's. Celine's independent spirit provides the backdrop for the humorous and dreadful stories that have been her life.
