Charlotte lives in Homewood, Alabama which borders the city of Birmingham. She is married to Tim, and they are parents to their daughter, Riley, and their son, Brady. Charlotte is earning an MFA in creative writing from Seattle Pacific University and does freelance writing and copywriting. She has experienced healing on many levels through stories and believes reading, writing, and other forms of creativity have transforming power. Charlotte has been a Christian for over 20 years, and she likes to examine God's grace from many angles and explore spaces where grace intersects with everyday life. Her Story Cures online small groups, podcast, and weekly email newsletter explore how reading, writing, creativity, and grace impact us and help us make sense of the world. Making room for others and their stories is also a priority for Charlotte. She's grateful to have a lot of opportunities to do so through her writing and through her roles as wife, mom, friend, and neighbor.

Some of her favorite things are gorgeous golden ginkgo trees in the fall, steaming hot toddies in the winter, new signs of life in the spring, and reading under an umbrella on the beach in the summer. Regardless of the season, she finds joy in quiet mornings to herself while the rest of her family is still asleep, in learning about new musicians and authors and artists who do good work, and in experiencing those "A-ha" moments during the creative process.
