Important stuff first: I'm currently working on a Dearest Dorothy #7. Please follow my Facebook Page www.facebook.com/charlene.baumbich or best bet, subscribe to the TwinkleGram to stay informed of release. http://www.charleneannbaumbich.com/follow-me.html

Throughout my surprise career (17 books, international speaker, I didn't start writing until I was 44 years old!) I have written and presented about the layers of life just as I see them--slightly off-center, mostly dead-on, and always through the lens of grace.

One of my great joys in novel writing is story chasing. Characters show up, knock on my creative mojo, present a problem and away I go, chasing after them, fingers flying across the keyboard attempting to keep up with their heartaches and victories, surprises and slippery nuances.

Whether writing novels or nonfiction, it is through writing I learn and processes life's valuable lessons which I feel compelled to share.
