About Amy

Amy B. Chesler is an author, award-winning blogger, & 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 being freed 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. This list includes five different non-fiction stories to six different best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies, as well as content for Scary Mommy, the DVD Netflix blog, Home & Family TV, BluntMoms, Mama Instincts, Elephant Journal, TODAY Parents, & more. In 2017 she was gifted the title of “BlogHer Voice of the Year,” for her previous work in Expressing Motherhood.

In 2019, 2020, and 2021 Amy was named an Iris Award Nominee at the Mom 2.0 Summit for Best Writing and in 2021 for Best Book.

Most recently, Amy celebrated the release of her true crime memoir, Working for Justice. It is the harrowing account of her mother’s murder, as well as the detailed process of convicting her admittedly guilty killer. She is so very thankful for the immense support and great receipt of her debut full-length book. While not parenting, blogging, cooking, reading, traveling, & healing, Amy is busy writing her future projects.
