Charlotte Russell didn't always know she wanted to be a writer. At one point she had grand plans to be an architect, until she realized she couldn't draw anything more complicated than a stick figure. So, she enrolled at Notre Dame and studied her first love—history. Now she writes historical and contemporary romances. When not pounding on the keyboard or tending to her family, she is privileged to serve the people of her community at the local library. She's resided in numerous locales, including Indiana, Mexico City, Phoenix, and Seattle but currently lives in the middle of the US.
