About Colleen M. Chesebro
Welcome to the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where I write the magical poetry and stories the faeries whisper to me in my dreams. If you love faeries, myths, and magic you have found a second home. I’m glad you’re here. Namaste & Blessed Be!

Fairies are mythical beings often found in folklore and romantic legends. I feel that the good neighbors (or good cousins… they don’t like to be called faeries) whisper their stories to me. In fact, I’ve found them to be the source of much of my writing inspiration.
I am interested in the Faerycraft which is a belief that the lives of witches and fairies are intertwined. Faery Witchcraft is a way to bring the old Faery Faith ways and beliefs forward into a modern neopagan context. The Faery Faith is a belief system that transforms religion. It can be followed within any religion; however, it is uniquely suited to combining with paganism. As a Buddhist, these beliefs work for me.
This isn’t about only honoring the faeries. It’s also a way to connect to them and to the Otherworld on a deeper level. Fairy Witchcraft weaves together many different threads: the Irish Faery Faith, neopagan witchcraft, Druidism, Celtic Reconstructionism, Germanic folk beliefs, and Heathenry.
You will find most of my poetry and stories center around this belief system. I hope you will enjoy my exploration into the mystical and unusual.
Of course, not everything I write contains this pagan edge. I love all forms of fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, and crime novels. I LOVE to read. Check out my weekly book reviews. I think there is something there for everyone.
I offer an opportunity for authors to introduce us to their writing and a chance for readers to learn something new about the author in my monthly feature Conversations with Colleen. In 2020, the interviews will increase to two a month on the 15th and 30th.
I also sponsor a weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge where you can write Tanka, Haiku, Haiga, Haibun, Senryu, and Cinquain, Etheree, Nonet, and Shadorma poetry. Syllabic poetry is my thing. It’s all about the brevity of words and how powerful they become in these abbreviated forms. Join in! Everyone is welcome.

BIO as of 7/15/2019:
Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist 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 Whisperer 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.
My writing Muses, Sugar & Spice, have crossed over the rainbow bridge, but they are always with me. ❤ I miss them both.
