About Charlotte Henley Babb

Charlotte Henley Babb has been writing since she was four, making up stories about fairies in the back yard and aliens in the forest. She has studied the folk stories of many cultures and wonders what happened to ours.

She asks where the stories are for people over 20 who have survived marriage, divorce, child-raising, education, bankruptcy, and widowhood. She believes that the initiation of adolescence is only the first cut, not the deepest, and she continues to explore the second half of life for wisdom, thrills and the heck of it.

She has taught writing for Greenville Technical College and the University of Phoenix. She's exploring the realm of steampunk and creative artificing.

Apart from that, she hangs out in the Twilight Lounge, a nexus between the four dimensions of Faery, Mundane, Cyberspace and the HyperDrome.

Charlotte is the author of an adult fantasy novel, Maven Fairy Godmother, released March 2012, which won a Sharp Write Book award for Fantasy in 2014, and Best Novel for Adults in the South Carolina Media Women Communications Contest in 2014. She has several fantasy short stories collected in Maven's Fractured Fairy Tales and PumpkinEater, as well as southern fiction in Walking Off Heaven's Shore, Just a Smidgen of Magic, and In the Still Midwinter. She wrote several stories in Port Nowhere, a shared world science fiction anthology, and random stories and articles. She presented "Fairy Tales and the Industrial Revolution" at Upstate Steampunk Con 2011, and has appeared on panel discussions at Dragon*Con 2011, ConCarolinas 2012 and 2015, Fairie Escape Atlanta 2012, and LibertyCon 2012. She presented at ConJuration in Atlanta in 2015. She has also presented at the Southeastern Writers Association annual conference.

She loves fractured fairy tales for grownups and writes them for your enjoyment. Never miss a new release. Sign up for her mailing list at http://bit.ly/RedStilletos

Reviews of In the Still Midwinter by Charlotte Henley Babb

Anne Wrightwell reviewed on Jan. 15, 2021

This is a short collection of sweet, heartwarming stories set at Christmas time. Having read Fractured Fairy Tales, I was expecting some paranormal or fantasy elements but they weren't any. It's not a criticism just a comment.

My favourites were "Cocoa and the Cat" (although I thought it was a stupid bet) and "In The Still Midwinter".
