Chariss also writes descriptive fiction books of interest to those in her own generation, the baby boomers or anyone in their fifties or older. Although her novels are full of suspense, mystery, and action, they are also filled with intrigue and esoteric observation covering issues that we have all faced at some point in our lives, such as doubt, suspicion, and betrayal by those closest to us. You won't find zipper-rippers or bloody gore in her novels, but you will find thoughtful and provoking situations relating to the human condition. Her characters are seasoned from their life experiences.
