About the Author

Charles Herrick is a writer and relief worker, serving alone in the most challenging settings in the underdeveloped world. He has been to the mud huts of Kenya, the slums of Bombay, and other places rarely mentioned in Condé Nast. In Africa he resolved an epidemic. In India he treated lepers and untouchables for all kinds of health ailment. Later in the high mountains of Southern India, he taught a woman to walk again who had been crippled since the age of 5 and who had not walked in 33 years.
Charles continues to write on a variety of topics. Most recently, he has recounted a number of memorable and moving conversations with women who were dealing with the problems that many modern women confront. The book is Women in My Office. It is unique in its ability to capture both the emotion and the complexity of a wide range of issues.
Charles is a Seattle native. He married Kristy while in college and he feels that was the best decision of his life. They have three great kids, Lexie, Mason and Walker, along with llamas, two chickens and a bulldog named Bullard, who is very dull and dependent.
