My name is Celaine Charles, and I am a want-to-be-writer…no scratch that. I am a writer. And finally, after traveling the long and winding road to publishing, I am an author. For the last several years, this site has been my journey in writing, a place to gain my strength, and learn all I can about my craft. Now it’s become a platform to showcase my travels to authorhood, and to share some spectacular souvenirs with other writers who might feel similar sparks in their own lives. I invite you to join me on this adventure!
