New Blogger: Cheri Chesley

Here I am!

This morning I was thinking, "What if we all woke up one day to realize we're all fictional characters in somebody else's work?" It's kind of like when Buzz Lightyear realized he was actually a toy and not a space ranger.

I'm really excited to start blogging here with other Cedar Fort authors. My qualification for being here, The Peasant Queen, is my YA romantic fantasy novel. Watch here for information on release dates.

Rebecca asked each of us newcomers to introduce ourselves, so I'll start with my family. I'm married with 5 children--3 boys and 2 girls--and we currently live in Tooele, UT. Aside from writing, I enjoy other forms of creation such as photography, sewing and cooking. Just don't ask me to garden. To go along with my fun pollen allergies, I also have no skill whatsoever making plants grow. Though I am pretty skilled at killing them.

I also have a Mommy Blog, where I post about raising my kids and other fun family stuff. And my Author Blog, where I post about the fun of writing, reading, and the occasional book review. Currently, I'm having a fun contest on my author blog, in conjunction with my sister-in-law's author blog. You can click HERE or HERE for more information, but basically we're recruiting followers as part of our Spring Into Reading contest. Once we both have 100 blog followers, we will do a drawing for the three prizes--a romance novel prize package, a fantasy novel prize package and a mystery novel prize package. Mel(issa) and I are really excited to give out these fantastic prizes, so don't miss your chance. Head on over and follow our blogs to enter!

I'm already looking forward to my next post. See you in 2 weeks :)

I like your opening question. And in a way, we are fictional characters--in the minds of others. They fill in the blanks about us, they imagine our stories and our daily lives. :)
