Chuck Abdella

Biography

Chuck Abdella is a History teacher at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, MA. With degrees in History from Boston College and Columbia University, Chuck has spent many long hours in the embrace of ancient and medieval civilizations. During July, he also directs an academic enrichment camp called College Academy, where he usually saves the world at least once per summer by spearheading an adventure during the camp’s popular Time Machine Day. Studying all that history, telling stories as a teacher, and seasonal world-saving have all helped inspire his writing. He has written poetry and prose for at least 25 years and has been published by the St. John’s Icon, the Boston College Stylus, Worcester Magazine, and the Boston Globe.

His first novel, The Outcasts: Book I, the Lies of Autumn was published in June of 2015 and has enjoyed enthusiastic reviews. The sequel, The Darkest Forests was released in August 2016 to equally positive reviews.
