Hi! I’m Charlie

I’m a writer, wife, mama, and alumni mentor for David Perell’s online course Write of Passage. 

I write to understand myself better and focus on continuous individual improvement. And I write because it feels good. 

My hope is to create a safe space for readers to feel like we’re in this thing together. Because everything we do, no matter how embarrassing or shameful, helps us grow into the people we’re meant to become. 

Writing under a pseudonym gives me the freedom and courage to share what I otherwise might be too uncomfortable to share. It’s like roaming Hogwarts’ hallways with a Cloak of Invisibility. I get to explore dark places and forbidden grounds without fear.

Transparent Tuesdays

Every Tuesday, I write a short and spicy newsletter in three acts:

I. Personal life insight that has me feeling introspective.

II. New essay I’ve written in one of four categories: personal growth, parenting, relationships, or writing.

III. Something I find hilarious or something I’ve learned that I can’t wait to share. Or whatever I can scramble to throw in my newsletter because sometimes it’s a real crapshoot right up until the deadline.
