February 2016 – Starting in March, Charlie will be writer-in-residence at the Fairhope Center for the Writing Arts on the gulf south of Mobile Alabama. During last year’s visit he finished his novel DEAD INVESTIGATION, a sequel to his first book, DEAD CONNECTION. Farrar Strous and Giroux published this sequel last October. Around the same time FSG released the paperback of his fifth book, DEAD GIRL MOON.
The Center for the Writing Arts cottage is comfortable, picturesque, and situated within a hundred feet of a world-class library — a perfect environment for writing . Citizens of Fairhope are, by history and tradition, open, progressive, and multi-talented — an altogether amazing community — and Charlie has started another informal writing group with local authors Skip Jones, Teen Siener, and Don Sawyer.
Charlie also continues to collaborate with local artist/painter Chris Knight in a “spontaneous inspiration” experiment each week going outdoors to different locations and, once there,working in their separate media simultaneously for an hour with the same vista of inspiration. Chris creates a plein air painting and Charlie writes a short-short story the area evokes. Afterward, they rehash to see what transpired — what caught their separate fancies — what they notice about the similarities and differences in their processes.
