Charley Marsh


From street urchin to author and indie publisher with many stops in between, life has been an interesting journey. Two personal traits carry me through the good times and dark times: an insatiable hunger for knowledge that molded me into an avid reader at a very young age, and a driving need to create in a variety of mediums.

My rules of life are simple:
1. Never put off what is important to you. Go after it. Nurture it.
2. Be true to yourself. Stand up for what you believe in.
3. Listen to your gut. Intuition is a sadly neglected sense.

These rules come from a firm belief that we all have the power to choose what and who we want to be. Live every day as if it will be your last, for all we know it could be.
