About Chelsea Caslie
Chelsea Caslie is an author, reader, and avid video game player who incorporated all of her passions into one project. A perfect day is when she plays video games with her dog next to her. When it comes to video games the longer and more immersive the better and you’d probably find her playing the same games as the main characters from her debut trilogy. Chelsea was born and raised in California and calls the Bay Area her home with her family and dog.
The Fantasia Series is a Sci-fi and Fantasy trilogy composed of Lost in Fantasia, Fatal Reset, and A Broken Game. Please follow @chellycaz on Twitter!
Chelsea's books contains themes of identity and strength, not just physical strength, but mental strength as well. "It's ok to feel lost and sometimes getting lost can be a moment of growth," Chelsea says.
"As the world continues to grow, including the use of technology, we might feel like we lose ourselves in the person we create for entertainment, social media, or gaming. Being sure to stay grounded in who we are, open to change, and understanding when to take a break from the character we present to others is beneficial for our own mental health."
Chelsea's advice for writers
Chelsea finds inspiration in day-to-day activities. Taking a hike or getting out of the house is her favorite cure for writer's block. "The scenery I saw on hikes often led to inspiration for something in my writing later on," she says.
What's next for Chelsea
Chelsea is a big advocate of mental health awareness and support, both professionally and personally. Writing has been a way to improve her own mental health and she hopes that, in reading her stories, others gain an experience that can improve their own mental health.
Chelsea is done with her trilogy and Tack's storyline, but she doesn't think that she is done within that world. "There are stories that I'd love to tell from other characters in the series. Whatever I end up writing, I tend to stay in the realm of Fantasy and Sci-Fi."
