About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.

  1. Evocative words and imagery to me as my granddaughters live adjacent to a shell-strewn beach and often gather a few for me.

    • How wonderful! Mine moved back to Texas so I miss them already.

      • I am 100 miles away from my mine; so that’s not ideal, though perhaps not so far apart as you from yours – I don’t know. Still, the distance can make the contact we have all the more special perhaps. I hope this is true for you.

        • Yes they lived here in Pensacola, Florida with their Mom, our daughter, for about 6 months. The kids decided they want to stay with their Dad in TX. Our daughter will stay here. Divorce is always hard on families. Thank you for your kindness 🙂
