Charlsie Russell is a retired United States Navy Commander turned author/publisher. She loves reading, she loves history, and she loves the South. She focuses her writing on historical suspense set in her home state of Mississippi.
After seven years of rejection, she woke up one morning and decided she did not have enough years left on this planet to sit back and hope a New York publisher would one day take a risk on her novels. Thus resolved, she expanded her horizons into the publishing realm with the creation of Loblolly Writer's House.
In addition to a naval career, writing, and publishing, Ms. Russell has raised five children, who, along with their dad, stick close.
