Showcase: Chantelle Atkins
Kate Rigby nominated Chantelle Atkins as an Indie Author who deserves appreciation and acknowledgement of her work. I am pleased to present this author a showcase blog post.
Chantelle Atkins was born and raised in Dorset, England and still resides there now with her husband, four children and multiple pets. She is addicted to both reading and music, and is on a mission to become as self-sufficient as possible. She writes for both the young adult and adult genres. Her fiction is described as gritty, edgy, and compelling.
Her debut YA novel The Mess Of Me deals with eating disorders, self-harm, fractured families and first love. Her second novel, The Boy With The Thorn In His Side follows the musical journey of a young boy attempting to escape his brutal home life. She is also the author of This Is Nowhere, This Is The Day and has recently released a collection of short stories related to her novels called Bird People and Other Stories. Chantelle's next release will be out August 2017 and is a YA post-apocalyptic dystopian called The Tree Of Rebels. A further release should occur towards the end of 2017, when Elliot Pie's Guide To Human Nature, a contemporary adult novel will be released. Chantelle is currently working on a contemporary young adult novel and has a four-book YA series planned as well.
