About the Author
I started writing when he was in seventh grade. With my overactive imagination, I wrote a short story for a class that was later printed in the local paper. It was the first thing in my life that I was extremely proud of. My teacher, Mrs. Scott, saw my talent and encouraged me to continue to write. I did just that for a couple of years but like most kids found interest in other things. After setting aside my love of writing and drawing as a teen, I returned to it as a young man and started writing stories and creating comic book characters. Using my children, loved ones, and friends as inspiration, I have created over a hundred characters and stories that I still hope to publish. I’ve always considered myself more of a creator than a writer, so I spent two decades looking for a collaborator and in 2017 I found not one but two people willing to write with me. After several collaborations with Charles Little Jr and Tammy Dale, I feel like he can finally write on my own. I am grateful for everything I have learned from them and others, and I set out to write the second and third novels in the Sheriff Carter Link series. I plan to continue on with the novels I have started along with creating new stories and characters. I also hope that someday I can help others with their dreams of becoming published authors.
Charles Little spent most of his childhood and teenage years with a book in his hands. He developed a desire to become an author while working on short stories and other creative writing assignments in school. His descriptive writing talent showed through in these assignments, with teachers often commenting that the vivid scenes and pictures he painted made them feel as if they were actually part of the story. As a young adult, Charles attempted on more than one occasion to write a book, but life always seemed to get in the way. On top of the challenges of a busy schedule, he came to feel that he was a writer without a story to tell. He’d all but given up on his dream until he read some book ideas that his friend and now collaborator Troy Pendleton had outlined. Those ideas came to life for Charles and for the first time since he was a kid, he felt like he finally had a story to tell. He co-founded New Legend Books and Comics with Troy and their first venture was the book “Dead or Alive: The Reaper’s Redemption”. With his lifelong dream finally realized, Charles now plans to continue writing and wishes to help others see their dreams of being an author come true as well.
