The Lady from Spain

In a dark hour after midnight in 1938 a volley of shots ring out and a number of Spanish men fall dead. For them, from then on, there are no consequences. But for the women left behind, wives, mothers, daughters and sons, the echo from those gun barrels repeat, repeat, and repeat. This is the story of the women in one of those affected families. More

About Charles Bechtel

Born:
Spring Lake, North Carolina, April, 1953, fourth day, five minutes past midnight (thus late for my parents’ anniversary, which sets a standard for all such events from then on.)

Educated:
a long while back, when colleges offered to improve human beings attending their classes, not dedicate themselves to the function of making a person employable. Ahh, the good old days.
Undergraduate degree: In English from a State college in Glassboro, NJ, that changed its name to Rowan University when Mr. Rowan gave it a huge wad of cash.

Master degree:
In English from Temple University in 1996, which is where I got to learn exactly what I needed to know from David H. Bradley, the author of a fine book, “The Chaneysville Incident” *among others) which I recommend reading. Otherwise, graduate school for writers is a waste of time and money.

Marriage:
I married to the finest woman on Earth, by accounts of many others more than myself: Manuela.

I married once before, but for practice. It lasted a mere sixteen months.

Manuela brought with her two wonderful young ladies, Elizabeth (Baby Beth) and Manuela (Meme), who each in turn delivered into my life young ladies of inestimable worth: Sky (b. 2003) Lucy (b. 2007) and Mia (b. 2008.) Though I give to each huge chunks of my heart, doing so has increased that heart’s size.

Work History:
Let’s say I worked, and have enjoyed no occupation more than Educator. My students put their trust in me; I put my faith in them. Pretty much always works out.

What I do for fun:
Everything. If it is not fun, I quickly stop doing it. (see Work, above)

Writing Philosophy:
Make sense by appealing to the senses.
