Born and raised in the Washington D.C. area, writing has been a passion of mine since I was young. I started writing my first book, 'My Colorblind Rainbow' in 2013. In 2017, I decided to continue writing, taking a leap of faith and following my dreams of publishing my first book which made the 'In The Margins Award Long List' for YA fiction in 2018. I launched Hardy Publications in September of 2017, working as a freelance writer and literary blogger. I've written for publications such as Women and Words, 25 Hottest Indie Authors Artists Advocates 2020, and CulEpi.
With certifications in persuasive writing and public speaking, TEFL(Teaching English as a Foreign Language) while overseas, I use my platform to raise awareness for different cha

Considering the circumstances of the two MC's, the secret baby tension was really underwhelming. Billie and Drew's chemistry was really good in the beginning, but somehow when they got together it just didn't wow me. I also didn't care about any of t ...more

“Darlene’s dark brown eyes locked on Rose’s grey eyes.
Neither could prepare themselves for what happened next.
Warm like a bright summer day, magic like stars falling from the sky, silent like the world had ended; only Darlene and Rose left standing. That’s what Darlene’s first kiss felt like. Things that never made sense before were as clear as they had ever been.”
Chanel Hardy, My Colorblind Rainbow

“How do I know you won’t hurt me?” River’s hands were still trembling.
“If you don’t trust me, go ahead and kill me.”
Chanel Hardy, River's Moonlight

“You don’t have to tell anyone anything if you don’t want to. You don’t owe anyone your trauma. Not even your boyfriend.”
Chanel Hardy, The Coldest Moon

“And this was perhaps the first time in my life that death occurred to me as a reality. I thought of the people before me who had looked down at the river and gone to sleep beneath it. I wondered about them. I wondered how they had done it—it, the physical act. I had thought of suicide when I was much younger, as, possibly, we all have, but then it would have been for revenge, it would have been my way of informing the world how awfully it had made me suffer. But the silence of the evening, as I wandered home, had nothing to do with that storm, that far off boy. I simply wondered about the dead because their days had ended and I did not know how I would get through mine.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

“For nothing is more unbearable, once one has it, than freedom.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

“Love him,’ said Jacques, with vehemence, ‘love him and let him love you. Do you think anything else under heaven really matters? And how long, at the best, can it last, since you are both men and still have everywhere to go? Only five minutes, I assure you, only five minutes, and most of that, helas! in the dark. And if you think of them as dirty, then they will be dirty— they will be dirty because you will be giving nothing, you will be despising your flesh and his. But you can make your time together anything but dirty, you can give each other something which will make both of you better—forever—if you will not be ashamed, if you will only not play it safe.’ He paused, watching me, and then looked down to his cognac. ‘You play it safe long enough,’ he said, in a different tone, ‘and you’ll end up trapped in your own dirty body, forever and forever and forever—like me.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
