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. I wholeHEARTedly agree with you, Colleen! Too many times, we are afraid to venture forth into new areas, but I believe new things, whether it be by traveling around the world or simply exploring different life paths, will keep us forever young. Much thanks for sharing…

  2. It’s like always having something to look forward to – even if it’s only in your own head and the path is not yet clear. It’s all about anticipation. By the way – we covered our books with wallpaper. I found some school books years later and was horrified to see what we’d live with at that time. My mum still defended the garish orange and purple pattern!

    • It is the excitement of something new and the challenge of accomplishment. Anticipation… what a great addition to the journey! Judith, the wall paper sounds so 1960’s! My step mother’s bathroom was pink, purple, and blue. I never saw something so hideous in my life! LOL! <3

  3. That was an amazing post, Colleen. I totall hear you. We need new beginnings or we get stuck. Which isn’t true actually because we get pushed from life anyway. But when we start new beginnings consciously we progress in a much higher level.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
