About the Author


Let me start by saying thank you for visiting my Author Page and your interest in “Upward Ever: Chelsea’s Way to Freedom.”

I still remember when I was growing up some of the distinct challenges and encounters I experienced as I tried navigating my way around situations at school and in my personal life. I assure you not everything was easy to talk about.

Today, as I look back on what I have accomplished in my professional life, I have learned that sharing my successes and adversities with family and true friends can make a world of difference in the decisions you make.

As an Author, I have chosen to write stories with a focus on children’s self-esteem, disability and mental wellbeing which young readers’ can easily connect with. Personally, this would be my way of providing inspiration, hope and encouragement to you.

Hopefully, Chelsea’s Way to Freedom brings a little inspiration and sparks some new found hope to a child in your family or community!

This is a chapter book whose main character is differently abled and is supported by the love of her family. It is written in both English and French. The illustrations are very similar to that of anime. Each chapter ends by teaching an overall lesson.
