Hello Readers! My name is Deanna Chesley. I am glad you are here and I am very excited to share my books with you!  I am the mother to four beautiful daughters named Sydnee, Summer, Gracie and Ellie. They range in age from 12 years to 25 years old. Sydnee, my oldest daughter just received her master's degree, is working on her 2nd master's degree and plans to start on her PhD in 2022. Summer graduated with her Bachelor's degree in 2021. Gracie is a sophomore in college and my youngest daughter Ellie is in the 7th grade. I have been working full time for the last 25 years raising my daughters and they have kept me quite busy! I also taught 4th grade for several years before I had children, and loved every single minute of it. I have been raising and teaching children in one capacity or another at school, at church, or in my home for the last 30 years. 

 

I love to write stories that will empower readers of all ages to understand how changing their thoughts, speaking with intention, and self-love have the power to change their lives. The inspiration for all my books has come from the experiences I've had while raising my own children...which have been endless!

 

I currently live in Arizona with my family. Arizona has been good to me and it does put on quite a display with some of the most beautiful sunsets on earth... but I do still dream of living by the ocean one day! 

Some FUN FACTSTALENTS, and FAVORITE THINGS that make me UNIQUELY ME!
