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 2018. I launched Hardy Publications in September of 2017, working as a freelance ghostwriter, author, and literary blogger. I also use my platform to raise awareness for different charities and non-profit organizations, donating a portion of my book royalties to help others in need.

The Very Next Day: A Short Christmas Romance

Copyright 2019 Chanel HardyThe day after Christmas. I waited for him in the bathroom, watching the snow fall against the tiny window sill. It was a small bathroom located in the basement of the church. The perfect hiding spot. We had thirty minutes left before the wedding ceremony started. Guests were being seated in the pews & we figured no one would miss us in the meantime. After the chao... Read more of this blog post »

Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
“My spirit. This is a new thought. I'm not sure exactly what it means, but it suggests I'm a fighter. In a sort of brave way. It's not as if I'm never friendly. Okay, maybe I don't go around loving everybody I meet, maybe my smiles are hard to come by, but i do care for some people.”

Girl by Meaghan Curley
"This was an absolutely hilarious read, and an interesting, satirical take on the Greek myths--particularly regarding Hades.

Tranquila was an entertaining MC to follow, equal parts pitiful, funny and relatable in her ignorance of Greek mythology, he..." Read more of this review »

This was a fun read of sex, drama and drugs. This is the author's first novella, and she did a good job with making the characters realistic for those from urban settings where these lifestyles are common. If you love crazy hood lit, then I'd ...more

James Baldwin
“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

James Baldwin
“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

“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.”
