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

  1. I missed this post but I am glad I caught up with it. Robbie has written an excellent post covering all the bases. Indie authors have given me such an awakening and I am blown away by their talent. I am also exploring genres that I never would have considered in the past. 🌼🌼🌼

    • This whole thing began with a blogger saying how horrible Indy authors and their books were. The insinuation was that those of us who do reviews do it because we are friends with the author and not really grading them correctly. Many of us were frustrated beyond belief! I can truthfully say, that I read very few novels from Indie Authors that I do not love. This particular blogger got more attention from her post than any she had ever written before. (The Trump Effect). LOL! Anyway, I thought Robbie gave an excellent answer. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. How can we grow if we don’t try to new things? Hugs. <3
