About Charlotte Underwood

I'm Charlotte Underwood, Wife, Daughter and Sister, from Norfolk in the UK.
I have been writing stories my whole life, as I child I used to create and illustrate stories with a pen and paper on long car journeys. Writing for me is more than just a pass time, it is a outlet for me to put my feelings out into the world and therefore out of my mind, giving be that much needed clarity.
My aim in life is to do whatever I can to create more support for mental illness and get rid of as much negative stigma as possible. I love to use my real life experiences to help people and let them know that they are not alone, though it is also very therapeutic for me to do.
If I can save only one person, then I will be content with my life but I will never give up fighting for better support for those in need.

Review by: warde on Nov. 09, 2017 :
Thank you so much Charlotte. I saw you on the TV this evening and heard your story, which is what led me here!I myself have been through a similar situation. I lost my mum to suicide in May 2016. Every word you wrote I could relate to, the isolation, the stigma, the desperate realisation that life will never be the same again! We not only grieve for our loved ones but indeed for the futures we will no longer share with them. ' I wish mum was here moments' For me getting married and having children. I hope in the future to share my story publicly and stand up for the misunderstandings of mental health but not yet feel strong enough. I hope the charity ball goes well!! If I could give you more stars I would.

Absolutely inspirational. An absolute eye opener for those who haven't been affected by suicide and a total comfort and reassurance for those that have. So emotive I almost felt like I was beside you in your journey, I was in tears not only from your story, but my admiration for you. X

Review by: Verity on June 27, 2017 :
Charlotte has written a powerful narrative, aimed at helping anyone who finds themselves in a similar awful situation. In terrible circumstances, it can be really helpful to connect with someone who has been there, who understands, who has shared the same emotions and travelled the same journey. Reading about Charlotte's path through the terrible tragedy of her Dad's suicide will give comfort and guidance and hope. It is a raw and open account of how Charlotte got through it all and navigated the very bad moments. She has written it well, with sections for the differing complex feelings experienced at the different milestones of the first days, weeks, months, years. I found it very emotional to read.

Review by: Sunders16 on June 27, 2017 :
A personal journey - brave and honest and at times difficult to read as I can see Charlottes face clearly as her story unfolds. She is now part of and loved dearly by our family where I hope she can continue to feel safe in continuing to explore her feelings.
I have seen the impact on other families who have gone through the pain and loss associated with suicide and the " ripple " effect it has on all concerned - something which should never be underestimated. Sadly those left behind do struggle to get the help they need in dealing with the after effects which as Charlotte describes does cause some to go into self destruct mode themselves.
Stay strong Charlotte and aim for your goals - you can and WILL achieve them.

Someone who doesn't understand what going through suicide is like, this puts it into perspective and makes you understand. It tells a story before going through the different stages of grief. It helps give ways of dealing with this and it doesn't try to force you to do anything.
It's easy to read and makes you think.

Review by: Kieron Owen on June 26, 2017 :
As a reader who knew the author in some capacity during the events gone through in the book I can safely say that reading this has given me a new insight into how exactly Charlotte was feeling and grieving. The information put forward is from the heart, from experiences that no-one ever wants to go through and most importantly as honest as the sky is blue. No corners are cut here, the book tells the story of someone who struggled through this and decided to write it all down to hopefully help people in a similarly grim situation. A great informative read and I cannot wait to read more from this talented young woman.
