Charlie Hubacek has always had an insatiable urge to write since he was eight years old. Although nearly always a student of history, when he attended The School of the Ozarks, Point Lookout, MO, (a small private liberal arts college in southwest Missouri) he majored in mass media/English, where he was a student writer for the college public relations department and served as an associate and later editor of the student magazine.
Following his departure from formal education, he was employed for many years with a number of weekly newspapers in southwest Missouri working in retail advertising, a feature writer and operations manager of one small weekly.
Currently, he is working part time as a freelance writer, but concentrates his efforts on completing two historically based fictional novels in areas that he has actually lived for a number of years. Also, presently stewing on a back burner is a group of short stories that he is assembling together in the hopes they will also be published in the near future.
His character subjects are loosely based on his own experiences as an incurable addict of wandering the country and wondering about what ever may lie around the next corner. The short stories in particular deal with 15 years living as a tramp, a hobo if you will, traveling, living, experiencing life on the road from the mid-west to the west coast on to the gulf coast and then north to Alaska.
Authors that have had a major influence on his life could be none other than personalities as Edward Abbey, Jack London, Louis L’Amour and Henry David Thoreau.
He was born in Kansas City, MO in 1957, raised in southwest Missouri, where his heart remains, but currently lives in Missoula, MT.
