I am a prolific writer and author of THE EDGE OF NOWHERE, ROAM, and co-author of DÉJÀ YOU (2017).

An Oklahoma-native transplanted in Minnesota these last 27 years, I am a 1992 graduation of the University of Oklahoma and a rabid Oklahoma Sooner Football Fan. On most Saturdays from September through January, you can find me propped in front of the TV watching Sooner Football, or studying my smartphone for mobile updates from ESPN that give the current score of whomever OU is playing.

I'm a life-long lover of books and vehemently outspoken about banning and challenging books.

I'm blessed to come from an amazing extended family that begins with my father and his thirteen brothers and sisters. There is very little in this world more important to

Oh gosh...great question.

Without a doubt, my all-time favorite character in literature is Atticus Finch. I love that he has to make some tough decisions, and standing up for "right" puts him in the crossfire of those who would rather "follow" than "lead."

I don't know that I've been influenced so much by the characters as an author, but certainly as a human being. I love the characters in Harper Lee's masterpiece, and certainly Atticus Finch's strong sense of right and fair has influenced me as a human being. :)(less)

When I have something in my head, I literally drop everything to write and that's all I do. On other days, I don't have much to say, and so I go about my normal life. They say a writer should write every day, and I do write ever day; but not necessarily anything structured. Sometimes it's just opinion pieces or whatnot. Other days, it's part of a manuscript I'm working on.(less)

EXCITING NEWS!

Good morning, Friends! It feels like it’s been months since I’ve written a post. That’s probably because it HAS been months since I’ve written post. So much has happened since COVID-19 hit the United States, and the truth is I haven’t been in a great place to communicate. But I have fabulous news to share today! But first, let me catch you up to date…

Roam by C.H. Armstrong
"Roam is a fast, heartwarming read that helps present homelessness in a sympathetic light. I'd think it would be enjoyed by fans of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Ten Things I Hate About You, and all those high school movies focused on an o" Read more of this review »
