Colleen Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is a writer of cross-genre fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Her debut novel, a YA fantasy series called, “The Heart Stone Chronicles - The Swamp Fairy,” was published January 2017.

The book reveals the story of Abby Forrester, a 14-year-old orphaned girl who is entrusted with saving a community of fairy nymphs from certain ecological destruction. Along the way, Abby learns about friendship, love, and what it means to actually belong to a family.

Colleen’s writing explores ecological situations in the multicultural world of today. She combines real-life historical events into her writing to create experiences that will continue in the hearts and heads of her readers.

A veteran of the United States Air Force, Colleen is also a retired bookkeeper. She has an Associates Degree in Business Administration, and another Associates Degree in the Arts, which she uses to combine her love of writing with her passion for all things creative.

When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband, dogs, children, and grandchildren. When time permits, she also loves gardening, cooking, and crocheting old fashioned doilies into works of artistry.

She lives in the United States with her husband and her two Pomeranians, Sugar, and Spice. You can learn more about Colleen and her writing on her website

  1. Sounds good but the rules are that you have to have had a story published in England or Ireland. What good is this being an international contest when you live in the US and no publisher in England or Ireland will publish your work any way.
    If it is an international contest it should be open to all. No?

    1. Yes, if it says international, I would have to agree with you. I try to share these articles as I find them. I know they do not help everyone all the time. Please visit my blog and select the authors supporting authors tab on my menu. Peruse the many other contests, etc. to see if there is something there that appeals to you more. Hugs. ❤
