IMG_5713Chelsea Usher is a California native that has been living in Hartford, Connecticut since 2012. A teacher by day, writer by night, Chelsea likes to write short fiction, and is currently working on the Herculean task of her first novel, Unlocking the Universes, a fantasy novel about a girl whose biggest worry used to be her pre-calc final before she realized she was destined to bring piece to the universes.

When she isn’t writing, she’s either teaching, or being taught. She teaches full time at a Hartford Public School as an English teacher, and an adjunct professor at Goodwin College. Most recently, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern New Hampshire University with a Masters in English & Creative Writing. She also graduated Cum Laude from Quinnipiac University with a Masters in Teacher Leadership and Cum Laude from University of California, Riverside with a Bachelors in English and Classical Studies.

Outside of writing, Chelsea loves coffee (Starbucks, for those that need to know) and traveling the world to learn about new cultures.
