My passions: teaching, my family, and writing. I have been writing since I was in highschool. I love writing and enjoy scribbling my thoughts on paper. Sometimes words become sentences, which become paragraphs, which turn into a story, which I guess now, is a bunch of stories that became a novel.
I loved reading romance magazines when I was a teenager. I thought, one day I'm going to write my own novel. When my first child was born deaf, I self-published a children's fingerspelling colouring book. It was a lot of work, but fun. It helped my family and friends learn a little bit of American Sign Language and I felt accomplished.
As we know, life happens, time passes by quickly. I started teaching. I teach nutrition and physiology at a community college. When I stand in front of a new bunch of students, I feel excited to share what I know and mold their minds. Teaching, for me, isn't reading to them, it is like performing a play; show them, let them feel it, taste it, become it, until they get it. I love it!
So I'm sitting at my patio, and I start writing again. Not my school class notes, but my scribbled stories. My minds eye is flirty and naughty and I started writing my romance stories once again. One story became two, which became twenty. Some stories of old, were rewritten. Friends came to me and said "Charlotte, you should write a story about a sexy guy in a cowboy hat and a back road," thus "Deserted on River Road" was created. One friend wanted to see a story about a guy in an elevator. As I am sat in front of the computer with just one thought, a story evolves. I don't know how its going to end, but it just becomes.
One day I decided, I need to publish this. So that's what I did. I wrote this book for those who love fantasy, playful fun, and erotic romance. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I loved writing it! Remember to keep dreaming. Let your dreams and fantasies come true. Never give up on your passion it could inspire others to do the same.
