Sticks and Stones

  Chelsea DeVries

 Sticks and Stones: Poetry and Prose

Recently I received a great book about Poetry and Prose and its an amazing book.

Chelsea DeVries wanted to be a writer at the age of 7. Her first publishing credit came at the
age of 14 with a poem in a student anthology. She then wrote nonstop while doing IB classes in
high school. She published two YA novels while still in high school which after over 10 years
she rewrote as a NA romance that she looks to put out in the coming year. 

She is a seeker of justice and uses her words to free this world’s outcasted, peculiar, and underdogs from the chains that bind them. When not writing she runs and does PR for authors and musicians with
her bookish brand The Smart Cookie Philes. Though she’s Florida born and raised, she has
New Jersey in her veins. She currently lives in Port Richey, FL with her squad of three dogs.

Chelsea opens up about her life in this book telling how she was sexually assaulted twice by two different men before the age 13, then was diagnosed with a thyroid disorder while a junior in college and got an appointment with a medical doctor who ended up nearly killing her and then covering up her medical negligence, making it look like bird flu so she couldn't even sue her and that doctor still practices in Chelsea's city today.

Chelsea was bullied, outcasted and made to feel ostracized by her peers every year from kindergarten until she graduated college.

The story of her life goes on to tell all the traumatizing things that happened in her life and she decided after all the sticks and stones thrown at her she wanted to use them to rebuild herself and the people who have ever felt the same. She is hoping these poems give you the courage to know the difference between when to be merciful and knowing when to be merciless, and when to walk away from people who always make it a point to focus on your mistakes.

Be Back Very Soon

So sorry everyone, I have been missing for a bit now. I have been house hunting with  my son and finally we found the perfect home for him and his two kids. They all love it and so do I.

One problem he has to be out of the house he is renting at the end of May but can't move into the new home until almost the end of June. he has to find somewhere to stay for those 3 weeks. My house is very small with one bedroom but we could manage except he has 3 cats and I am very allergic so it wouldn't work. My other son has a dog so they couldn't stay at his house, and  my grandson has a dog so that is out. he can store some of the furniture in the garage at my grandsons, some at my other son's and some here in my tent in the back. We will manage. I will be helping him pack shortly but in the meantime will have time to do a couple giveawawys so keep watching.

Again, sorry for missing for so long but its been hectic here and now of course we are in total lockdown until May which doesn't help. I will be back though.
