Charles D. Allen
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
My background is on-orbit satellites support operations, design, and engineering management. My career started as a mail clerk and finished as Executive Vice President. Also as a senior management consultant to several Silicon Valley companies; I helped them restructure, increase revenues, and solve customer relations problems. After forty years, I retired to enjoy my family.
While watching my granddaughters play in the back garden; they told me, that they were having a lot of fun with their Fairy friends. The idea arose to write a series of children’s books to tell the story of a Fairy family. So, began the creation of the Bent River Cove book series. I received critical guidance from my granddaughters about the way fairies live, dress, and eat. After many consultations I finally received approval. What fun!
Calling upon my previous career experience I created LightSpark enterprises “A Family Business for Families TM.” As CEO I am responsible for business development and operations. The overall plan is to develop an interactive online family community via the Bent River Cove website. This in-turn will lead to future developments. The company focus is children and families emphasizing “Family Fun for Less with Easy Access TM.”
This is more fun than I ever had working with sophisticated satellite systems!
