Amy B. Chesler is an author, award-winning blogger, and actress from Southern California. She discovered her passion for the literary and film worlds as early as she can remember, and has been voraciously reading, writing, and performing ever since. However, it wasn’t until surviving domestic violence and freeing herself from an early life of abuse that she began to pursue her dreams professionally. Amy’s journey has led her to contribute work to many popular publications, including several Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies, TODAY Parents, and the Elephant Journal, as well as media appearances with the DVD Netflix blog, Life of Mom, Home and Family, and more. She is thrilled to be sharing her memoir, despite it being very heavy, and hopes she can help lighten other victim’s loads in the process. While not parenting, blogging, cooking, reading, traveling, and healing, Amy is happiest at home with her family. Feel free to follow her on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter at @amybchesler.
