Welcome to the fantasy realm of the Fairy Whisperer where I write magical poetry and stories the fairy nymphs whisper to me in my dreams. If you love fairies, myths, and magic you have found a second home. I’m glad you’re here. Namaste & Blessed Be!

Do you believe in fairies? If you do, you will want to take this test to decide your fairy clan. Click here to see what type of fairy you are.

Fairies are mythical beings often found in folklore and romantic legends. They usually have a small human form and magic powers. The fairies that speak to me are the nymphs rooted in the ancient mythology of Greece. The fairy nymphs whisper their stories and I, in turn, share them with you.

I enjoy writing about the seven different nymph clans which summarized are as follows:

The Oread clan lives in the mountains. The Naiad clan resides in bodies of water like springs and lakes, or swamps. The nymphs of the trees and forest are of the Dryad clan who inhabit oak trees; the Hamadryad who live in many different kinds of trees and die when the tree they inhabit dies; the Alseid clan who inhabit the forests and meadows; and the Meliae clans who live deep within the ash trees that grow in ancient forests. The sea-nymphs are from the Oceanid clan.

Fairy nymph Clans in THSC

In my novel, the Collective is comprised of seven fairy nymph clans who are differentiated by the color of their eyes which mimics the colors of a rainbow. I took some liberties with the Greek myths, to say the least.

I used the symbolism of a rainbow to represent the elements of the supernatural, hope, and enlightenment.

“In Thai (Theravada) Buddhist mythology, the rainbow represents a staircase linking the earth to the heavens which the nagas (member of a class of mythical semidivine beings, half human and half cobra) can descend to the earth.” (Khandro.net)

Nymphs are divided into types (here, alphabetically) and where they reside on the earth.

Alseids (groves) color: violet

Dryads (forests) color: orange

Hamadryads (trees) color: yellow

Meliaes (meadows) color: blue

Naiads (springs and rivers) color: green

Oceanids (the sea) color: indigo

Oreads (mountains) color: red

The Fairy Nymph Collective resides between the tears in the fabric of time called the horizontal realm. The nymphs were placed here by the gods to protect Mother Gaia.

My protagonist, Abby Forester received the gift of clairaudience from the gods for a reason. She acts as a liaison between the human world and the Collective.

Abby’s ability to communicate telepathically with the animals, birds, insects and even the fairy nymphs require her to shoulder a responsibility most teenagers wouldn’t be able to handle. Soon it becomes apparent that the blessings of an inheritance sometimes require the repayment of a debt.

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist writing YA fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, 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 Fairy 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 CarrotRanch Literary Community.com in November 2017 for her piece, called The Bus Stop. Her debut novel, The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy won gold in the 2017 AuthorsDB.com cover contest.

Colleen lives in Colorado with her husband and her two Pomeranians, Sugar and Spice. (My girls are gone now but I can’t take their pictures down. They were my writing muses). ❤

When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband and friends. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. You can learn more about Colleen at www.colleenchesebro.com.
