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. Sounds like it was interesting. I love all things folklore…I even included fairies (though an uglier, more mischievous kind of my own invention) in my first novel


    • Nice! I write about the fairy nymphs but they are benevolent to humans. They were put her by the gods to protect the earth. <3

      • I’ve always loved that, the traditional ideas of fairies as protectors or wish granters. It’s mainstream as hell, but I can’t help it…. I LOVE tinkerbell. My five year old watches the movies a lot, and I can’t help but laugh at the fact that a 26 year old man like me gets into them as much as she does lol. But that’s the beauty of myth I suppose…even when it gets commercialized by Disney XD

        • LOL! That’s great. I love hearing that as a Dad you can relate. Never lose that connection. My nymphs are closer to Avatar, and a movie my kids loved when they were young – but I can’t think of the name of it. Good grief! 😀 If you write fantasy, you should write something for my Fairies, Myths, & Magic Author Spotlight. Here’s the link:https://colleenchesebro.com/author-spotlight-guest-posts/. I’m always looking for self-published authors I can introduce to my readers. <3
