Writing healing fiction that makes people laugh while they are changing their lives.

I began writing when I could hold a piece of chalk and scribble my name–although I sometimes mistook “Chocolate” for “Charlotte” on the sign at the drug store ice cream counter.

When my third-grade teacher allowed me access to the fiction room at the school library, I discovered Louisa Alcott and Robert Heinlein, an odd marriage of the minds. These two authors, along with many others, have had the most influence on my desire to share my point of view with the world and to explore how the world might be made better. I had already read Black Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, and a good bit of King Arthur and Robin Hood.

Silicon Jones is one of my favorite characters from the Maven Fairy Godmother universe, and he is, in fact, Maven’s first antagonist in what will probably now be book three. His real name is Brewster, but as a computer wizard, … Continue reading →

Walking Off Heaven's Shore by Charlotte Henley Babb
"It's hard to review a short story collection since the stories are all different in this particular set of tales. There's a bit of several genres, so it's hard to home in on any particular one or two as stand-outs.

Okay, do I have a favorite? Yeah...." Read more of this review »

I found it a bit slow at first, but it got better as I got to know the characters and who was who. Carriger is amazing and I think it was just my disconnect with the previous books that slowed me down. Definitely worth reading.

“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”
Maya Angelou

“Heinlein's Rules for Writers

Rule One: You Must Write
Rule Two: Finish What Your Start
Rule Three: You Must Refrain From Rewriting, Except to Editorial Order
Rule Four: You Must Put Your Story on the Market
Rule Five: You Must Keep it on the Market until it has Sold”
Robert A. Heinlein

“What are the facts? Again and again and again – what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history” – what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!”
Robert Heinlein

“A desire not to butt into other people's business is at least eighty percent of all human wisdom.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land
