Thirteen-Year-Old Chelcie Oparanozie Becomes A Bestselling Author

MindStir Media author Chelcie C. Oparanozie’s new young adult book lands on an Amazon bestseller list in its first week.

PORTSMOUTH, NH – Reptiles vs. Amphibians was written by Chelcie C. Oparanozie when she was just 11-years-old. Fast forward a couple years and Chelcie has published the book with the help of MindStir Media, LLC. In its first week of availability, in February, Reptiles vs. Amphibians landed on the Children’s Reptiles & Amphibians Books bestsellers list.

“I’m so incredibly proud of Chelcie,” says J.J. Hebert, founder of MindStir Media and a fellow bestselling author. “Publishing a book and becoming a bestselling author are lifelong dreams for many but only a small fraction accomplishes this feat… I’m still amazed that Chelcie has achieved this goal at only 13 years of age… Her writing is superb and her storytelling ability is equally impressive…”

From the back cover: Geck, Pyro, Camilia, and Thorn; who are they? They are the Reptiles, of course! These four mutated teenagers have joined together to defeat the evil Amphibians. Which side is superior? Find out in… Reptiles vs. Amphibians.

“I love to write whenever I can,” says author Chelcie Oparanozie when asked about her writing. “It keeps me calm. Writing is the best way to express myself. I hope more young people can develop an interest in literature.”

Reptiles vs. Amphibians is available as a paperback book at, and other fine retailers worldwide. Wholesale orders can be placed through Ingram. The e-book version is forthcoming. Chelcie is available for interviews.
