Author Interview: Not Your Average Fairy Tale by Chantele Sedgwick

Welcome to Author Chantele Sedgwick

Chantele Sedgwick grew up playing the harp and singing. Little did anyone know, she always had stories floating around in her head. After she had her second baby, she finally realized she should probably write them down. Pursuing publication was something she only dreamed about, but now her dream is coming true.

The discovery of a first love, first kisses, and the many emotions teens go through, pushed Chantele to find her niche in writing teen fiction. Some of her stories share a few of her own experiences, but most of them are just fantasies she wished happened to her as a teen. She’s a sucker for a great love story and always enjoys a happy ending. She tends to have a thing for the “bad boys” in books, unless they’re total jerks. Then she’ll root for the good guy.

When she’s not writing, Chantele can be found spending time with her husband and three beautiful kids, or driving her sisters crazy with random story ideas. NOT YOUR AVERAGE FAIRY TALE is her first book.


If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future? 
I would like to go to the past. History is fascinating to me. I’d like to go back to any century really and see how they lived. Then I’d come back and write a book about it!

If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you? 
Family, Laptop, Sunscreen. (Seriously. I burn in like 2 seconds.)

What is one book everyone should read?
I think everyone should definitely read the Harry Potter series. It’s an amazing series with complex characters and storylines. I’ll love them forever.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I’ve always wanted to fly. 🙂

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? 
Brownies on the Moon. YUM!

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? 
I like chocolate instant breakfast. Or Special K. My husband says I eat old people food. Ha ha. 🙂

Night owl, or early bird?
Night Owl for sure. I’m NOT a morning person…

One food you would never eat? 

Pet Peeves? 
When people tap me on the shoulder to get my attention. Drives me insane!

Skittles or M&Ms? 
M&M’s for the win! Plain or Almond if you want to get technical.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book. 
There’s magic, mystery, a love story and a hot fairy. What more do you need in a book?

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world which would it be? 
Harry Potter’s world. Hands down. Give me a wand and an invisibility cloak and I’d be set!

Not Your Average Fairy Tale by Chantele Sedgwick

Ash Summerland has it all–good looks, popularity, and the best grades at The Academy of Magical Beings. Ready to complete his last assignment in order to graduate, Ash is confident he will get the apprenticeship he wants. When he opens the letter from the Council, he is shocked to discover he has been assigned to apprentice Lady Shenelle, Keeper of Happy Endings. A.K.A. the head fairy godmother. Ash is forced to grant three wishes to a troubled human girl named Kendall, and ultimately give her a “happy ever after”. But Kendall turns out to be more than he bargained for. Still grieving over her father’s death, Kendall doesn’t want anything to do with him. And worst of all, she doesn’t believe in happy endings.
