CHARLEE HARRIS
703 Four Mile Dr
Anniston, Alabama, United States
I was a high school drop out with a juvenile record who spent nearly four years locked in a facility because I had no one to house me. By the time I was 28, I was a Vice President in the Consumer Finance Industry, passed my GED and put a few college classes behind me. I was in the business for nearly 15 years and had gone through two husbands and was rearing six teenagers on my own. Three of them were my ex's children who did not want to live with him or their own mother. The other three came from the same state run facility I had been. When the girls reached eighteen, some left to pursue their lives, a couple of them married, and the youngest remained with me until her father pushed the envelope and took her from me. Two years later, I remarried and have been married to this wonderful man for over thirty years. It was because I him I began to explore my creative side. I learned I could paint and actually sold those paintings. I returned to college and earned an AA in Fine Arts. I graduated Suma Cum Laude. I was on the USA Today Academic Team for two year colleges, won a Phil Beta Kappa essay competition, and remain on the National Dean's List for three years. Encouraged with my success, I enrolled at Grand Canyon University in Arizona and completed my BA on line in English Literature. I graduated cum laude with a 3.79 GPA. It was then I began to write. Life got in the way and it took me almost five years to complete North to Absolution. It was picked up the first time I began to query by Deer Hawk Publications and set for release in 2017. In the meantime, I wrote Anju, which was quickly picked up by Rocking Horse Publications and is set for released this coming February 2016. I have continued writing and currently have four completed novels and two others in different stages of readiness. This year I was ask to be profiled in the Women of Distinction Magazine for this October, 2015. It has been a long time coming, but I have found my home. I'm writing the story of my life and already have a publisher asking for first bid when I have completed it. Currently, my husband and myself live in a one bedroom duplex where I write in the living room with no space to call my own. I use a computer I bought for a hundred dollars from a pawn shop that has seen me through college and all my books. Due to an accident, we are both disabled and live from month to month. I have excerpts from two books posted on my website and ask you to see for yourself if you can see the passion in my work. Writing like painting is the air that I breathe. Feel free to contact me anytime. You will find me in my living room putting my stories down on paper.

Sincerely,
Charlee
