At any given time, Chanté McCoy is reading a handful of novels, taking a continuing education class to dabble in her latest interest (NOTE: she has no future in belly dancing), or hiking with her beloved Doberman Pinscher. In 2018, she hiked the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2650-mile stretch from the border of Mexico to Canada...alas, without her pup.

Her most recent publication and first children's book is Blue Bear and Snow Toad, a tale about a young bear and toad who resist hibernating to experience a day of winter. Kirkus Reviews calls Blue Bear and Snow Toad a "charming picture book" and "a delightful ode to the season." Rated 5 stars on Amazon and available as a hardbound book.

Her debut novella, Seven White Wolves, is available in paperback, Kindle, and audio. A “lyrical” and “ethereal” retold fairy tale, this story transports readers to the early Middle Ages, with historical detailing and beautiful imagery to capture the imagination. 4.5 stars on Amazon.

In addition to Seven White Wolves and Blue Bear and Snow Toad, Chanté's publication credits include short stories featured in anthologies and magazines, various nonfiction articles, and innumerable uncredited training scripts, marketing copy, responses to RFPs, and technical documents. 

A list of available publications can be found on her Amazon profile.
