Rants and Rambles with Audra & Chelsea

It's Tuesday and it's also the end of the month so that means it's time for a new series called Rants and Rambles. BTR will close out each month with Chelsea Lockhart and we'll talk about whatever Black bookish things our hearts desire.

Chelsea Lockhart


C. M. Lockhart (also known as Chelsea) is a Black writer of fantasy because she loves creating worlds, exploring relationships, and writing stories about Black girls who aren't all that nice. She is the founder of Written in Melanin LLC — which encompasses the Melanin Chat, a weekly podcast, and a YouTube channel of the same name — and the Melanin Library, an online database of books written by Black authors.

She is also a lover of video games and anime, so whenever she isn't reading and writing — or talking about reading and writing — she's watching anime, playing her Switch, and dreaming about the day her books get animated.
