I am a prolific writer and author of THE EDGE OF NOWHERE (2016), ROAM (Coming Feb. 5, 2019), and co-author of DÉJÀ YOU (2017).

An Oklahoma-native transplanted in Minnesota these last 26 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

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)

ROAM: “Be Kind and Have Courage.”

Hello again, Friends! The last two weeks have been crazy-busy, as I’ve been out on the Minnesota leg of my book tour for ROAM. It’s been exhausting, exhilarating and so much fun! A huge thank you to everyone who has braved the hazardous roads that have plagued every single one of my book signings to date! I can’t thank y’all enough! Also thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy of ROAM, o...

Awesome read! Strongly recommend to those who enjoy a page-turner that doesn't reveal the "whodoneit" until the end.
C.H. Armstrong and 2 other people liked LiA's review of Roam:
Roam by C.H. Armstrong
"All in all a nice book. Swift and telling, educational and in spite of the tough story neither brutal nor sad. I liked it, and although I‘d not consider it great literature I‘d recommend it for a shared reading experience in the classroom."
C.H. Armstrong and 2 other people liked Raynor's review of Roam:
Roam by C.H. Armstrong
"This novel felt very real and raw, something that I look for in YA that deals with a strong issue, and this novel deals with the situation of homelessness in the life of a teenager incredibly well. It makes for a realistic read, with the rawness o..." Read more of this review »
