Welcome to Chely Schwartz
Born in Havana, Chely and her family moved to the US in 1962 where she grew up in Southern California. Always having had a love for books, she enjoyed reading to her children when they were little. Seeing the joy this brought to them, sparked her interest in writing.
Aside from the children’s book series “The Adventures of Tandy The Teddy”, Chely has also written a book in Spanish called “Como decia mi Abuela”. The book was written to document part of her Hispanic culture. It features “old sayings” from her Grandmother and others of a passing generation. It is both amusing and sentimental.
Recently released, is a Historical Fiction Novel called "The Peter Pan Princess", which tells a story about a young girl who was put on the Peter Pan flights from Cuba to Miami during the 1960's. A very compelling story of the young girls life changes and struggles from that of a privileged life, to ending up in a children's group home and eventually finding fame.
“The Adventures of Tandy The Teddy” is a series of children’s books about a Teddy Bear that lives in a classroom. The stories are the “Adventures” the children have with “Tandy The Teddy”.
Now she lives in South Carolina with the Love of her life, and her dog “Bruzer”. She recently became a “Glamma”! Her stories are now inspired by the love for her Glambaby Emma Sofia who she hopes to leave her legacy, and a love for books.
