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, and how they will develop.
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 teaches writing for Greenville Technical college and the University of Phoenix. She's exploring the realm of steampunk and creative artificing. Look for a new release, 20 Hours to Charles Town in February of 2016.
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 Fntasy in 2014, and Best Novel for Adults in the South Carolina Media Women Communications Contest in 2014. She has several fabntasy short stories collected in Maven's Fractured Fairy Tales and Pumpkin eater, as well as southern ficiton in Walking Off HEaven's Shore, Just a Smidgen of Magic, and In the Still Midwinter.
