Charles was born and raised in Mineral Wells, Texas. Along the way, he saw the most beautiful set of eyes he had ever seen. They belonged to a girl ... and he married her right away. Twenty years later, they have three children and are finally back home in Texas for good.

Upon retiring from the Army after 23 years, Charles continues to serve others as a middle school Math teacher and coach in the town he grew up in. When he's not in the classroom, gym, or spending time with his family, Charles writes stories about faith, love, hope, and adventure. 

His debut novel, Children of the Forgotten: The Anistemi Book I, released in November 2017 and the yet-to-be-titled sequel will release in the coming months. Charles is also writing an action thriller, and has begun outlining another series set in the Anistemi world.   

Charles’ faith is important to him, and he likes to share that faith through his stories and articles. If you would like to keep up with his insights, stories, and upcoming news, the easiest way to do this is through the newsletter.
