Charlotte is a writer and copywriter living in Birmingham, Alabama. She received an MFA in creative writing from Seattle Pacific University where she studied with Paula Huston and Lauren Winner. Her work has appeared in The Washington PostCatapultThe MillionsMockingbirdChrist and Pop Culture, and elsewhere. Charlotte also provides individualized creative writing instruction and is training to become a spiritual director. She will complete her spiritual direction certification program in 2020. She is married to Tim, and they have two teenage children—Riley and Brady.

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 alone while the rest of her family is still sleeping, in learning about new musicians, authors, and artists who do good work, and in experiencing those “A-ha” moments during the creative process.
