About Charlotte

Unlike most of my fellow writers out there, I didn’t always know I wanted to write. At one point I had grand plans to be an architect, until I realized I couldn’t draw anything more complicated than a stick figure. So, I enrolled at the University of Notre Dame and studied my first love–history. Now I put all that historical knowledge to good use by writing romances set in Regency England. charlotterussell-copy

When not pounding on the keyboard or tending to one husband, two cats, and three children, I am privileged to serve the people of my community at the local library.  I’ve resided in numerous locales, including Indiana, Mexico City, Phoenix, and Seattle but currently call the heartland of the USA home.

Here are a few of my favorite things:

  • chocolate (but not chocolate cake, pudding, or ice cream–weird, right?)
  • Notre Dame football
  • the World Champion Chicago Cubs!!
  • felines (shout-out to Misha and Sebastian)
  • sunshine
  • English history

You can find me on Facebook and Twitter.
