Van Heyden has been writing and publishing for the past 14 years. Many of his first books display 'Chaz' Van Heyden.
Charles loves children, loves pets, especially retrievers and Dalmations. He's a big fan of and plays tennis well. Likes fast cars. Likes wooded environments, and loves winding roads that disappear to seemingly nowhere-and explores them. Took up professional chauffeuring and now is retired from that occupation in preference for writing as a profession.
Loves researching strange topics and coming up with unusual or little-known facts about people and events. Can be found to supply the correct 'phrase' or saying for the misquoted one. And he plays a good game of 'Trivia' (not the game so much as the exercise verbally with his passenger / riders. When he is professionally chauffeuring them.
He won’t stop writing for a long time to come, and he won’t be going to the Great Beyond anytime soon.
