About the Author

C.L. Charlesworth was a closet writer. Her collections of short stories, prior completed novels, “The Family Band”, “The Last Merry-Go-Round” and recently finished project, “The Ears That Have Eyes” were tucked away in boxes. The death of her parents and several close friends made life apparent; it was too short to be afraid of failure. An Ohio native, C.L. attended UCLA, traveled to Europe, and settled in the Northwest.

She is drawn to vivid fiction with flawed characters that have provoked more gossip than a preacher has sermons---but their courage blossomed into a beautiful garden. Friendships formed from the Willamette Writers Association, empowered C. L. to bring to fruition her novels, eight other story outlines, and the collaboration of a television drama treatment. C.L.’s survival kit would include a sense of humor, good friends, good conversation, good food, and good wine. Finally, she’d tell anyone with a dream --- don’t settle for an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one.

“The Ears that have Eyes” is by debut novelist C.L. Charlesworth.   She writes what she seems to know and that is women relationship with other women and their relationship to their male lovers. The book is like a roller coaster ride, the long steep climb of the coaster cars before you start the descent into the book. In the first 5 chapters, I felt sorry for but bored with the character who came off as shallow, tragic, and alone. Chasing after the promise of a beautiful life that money supposedly buys.  Trying to get rich and famous through bad behavior and men. This social satire is biting, yet relevant to today reality television and the application of misplaced values. The book picks up momentum as the Protagonist decides to get a hold on her life by finding counseling which allows the Protagonist life story to unfold and the archetypal search for source (her Mother) to begin.  Charlesworth’s primary story location was Los Angeles, in the period I guess between 1980 - 1990’s.  It tells the story of seeking security and value in things at the expense of family and friends. How one can seem cursed when erroneous attitudes are carried over from one generation to the next.  How secrets ensue and it’s safe to say that everybody connected to Stephanie our Protagonist will be stripped of their folly or have some type of retribution that must be paid. I liked the plot twist of the characters appearing not precisely as whom they seem to be, which moves the story line along.
