New Writer on the Blogck!

By Cheri Chelsey

Hi! My name is Cheri Chesley, and I will be filling the Thursday spot here on the Blogck. I’m really excited to be here. Hopefully, as you learn about me, you’ll be excited too.

I write YA romantic fantasy—at least at the moment. My current project is a former-trilogy-now-two-book-set about the adventures of an intrepid young woman named Krystal. She and I are old friends. We first met when I was in high school, and too shy to make friends with real people.

Krystal is the centerpiece in my upcoming novel, THE PEASANT QUEEN, which is due out this December. In fact, you can even find it on and for pre-order. Exciting, no? In a sentence, Krystal is kidnapped and used as a pawn by a king bent on seizing his nephew’s throne. Ya—she’s not going to go for that.

The second installment, THE TYRANT KING, is the book I’m actually editing right now to submit to my publisher. This book takes place four years after THE PEASANT QUEEN, and introduces a new villain for Krystal to face.

When I’m not writing, or attending writing conferences, I have plenty to keep me busy. I’ve been married for 14 years and have 5 children. In addition to my children, I also babysit during the day. My hobbies are reading (of course), sewing, baking and photography. Lately my passion has been creating the perfect cheesecake. The journey has been delicious.

You can find me here every Thursday. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all!
