Chelsea Mueller, Author

Chelsea Mueller writes gritty fantasy and YA novels packed with lots of action and a steady undercurrent of sexual tension.

She spends too much time at the gym practicing MMA skills, but makes up for it by counseling other authors on writing dynamic and realistic fight scenes. Get those tips in her Write Like a Fighter series.

When not crafting tales full of ass-kicking and kissing, she runs the totally fun blog Vampire Book Club, dishes on the latest book and TV hotties for Heroes & Heartbreakers, and hangs out with her awesome husband and two giant dogs. She loves bad cover songs, dramatic movies and TV vampires.

She lives in Texas and has been known to say y’all.

Making Manicures Badass

My manicure is badass. Most are relaxing and soothing. Some are speedy and necessary. Mine? Badass. It just requires a little tweaking of names. I change my nail color every other week or so, and most weeks I can chuckle over the pun-tastic names for each color. This...
