About the Author

Charlotte Henley Babb began writing when she could hold a piece of chalk and scribble her name--although she sometimes mistook "Chocolate" for "Charlotte" on the sign at the drug store ice cream counter.

Growing up in the Carolinas, she found it easy to listen to the fairies in the woods and the aliens in the back yard.

When her third-grade teacher allowed her access to the fiction room at the school library, Charlotte discovered Louisa Alcott and Robert Heinlein, an odd marriage of the minds.

These two authors have had the most influence on her desire to share her point of view with the world and to explore how the world might be made better. Her favorite authors now include Sir Terry Pratchett, Robert Aspirin, and Esther Friesner.

In graduate school she began exploring through her writing the myths of goddesses in many cultures, and the resemblance of those stories to the fairy tales she grew up hearing.

She found that the stories she knew were very different from the older, wilder stories, and she knew finally that there were stories out there for women of a certain age.

She brings to any project a number of experiences, including work as a technical writer, gasket inspector, cloth store associate, girl Friday, and telephone psychic.

She studied the folk stories of many cultures and wonders what happened to ours.

Where the stories are for people over 20 who have survived marriage, divorce, child rearing, education, bankruptcy, and widowhood?

Having big feet, gray hair, and a mischievous twinkle in her eye, Charlotte loves fractured fairy tales and writes them for your enjoyment.

She now is exploring how to be her own fairy godmother to make her wishes come true.
