I’m Chelsea. Pronounced Chel-suh, although most of my life people have called me Chel-sea. I blame my parents and often times don’t even correct people anymore. For ease, most people call me Chels.
I’m a thirty-something wife, mom and former educator. I’m married to the love of my life and feel blessed to have found my true counterpart and soulmate, as cheesy as that sounds. We have three amazing and adorable kiddos. Hattie, Hutson & Hyland. We live in northern Indianapolis and absolutely love our new home and space.
I recently decided to take my passion for words and turn it into something meaningful. My mother passed away rather suddenly in 2017. She had been telling me for most of my adult life that I should write and show it to the world. I never listened until she passed. Suddenly I felt an urge to write and make her proud. Taking her advice is one of the best decisions I’ve made. I only wish I’d have listened sooner.
My goal as a writer is to take real-life experiences, both the beautiful and the brutal, and turn them into something others can relate to and enjoy. I follow my heart and write when I’m inspired by a “glimmer”. My website is: www.hopeandharshrealities.com if you'd like to read more of my work.
