About Chalene

Chalene is a Young Adult author currently working on her debut novel. Finishing school at the height of the pandemic, Chalene graduated with a double Masters in Children's Literature (MA) and Writing for Children (MFA) at Simmons University. She has worked as a creative writing teacher, literary agent assistant, content editor and curator, and writing tutor. When her nose isn't buried in a book, she's either walking her Goldendoodle, Maverick, playing board games with her partner, or watching Korean dramas. Chalene loves every stage of the writing process--from world building and character development, all the way to revisions. Most of all, she loves making space for individuals to share their stories.
