Bio

Hi I’m Charmaine!

I was born and raised in Australia, at nineteen I spent 6 months working as an Au Pair in Germany before moving to Ireland for 2 years.

I returned to Australia to complete a Bachelor of Arts but the call to travel was strong and after completing my studies I left again to live in Ireland for another 2 years before finally calling Canada home (Now I just has to convince Canada to let me stay  😉 ) .

In 1997, at 10-years-old, I wrote and published my first story in St. Paul’s Primary Yearbook and was the start of my life-long creative passion.

Storytelling, reading, imagination, and creativity, are all things that brought joy to my life. However, it was not until moving to Canada in 2018 that I found a supportive community to let me grow my secret passion.

Since then my creative soul has thrived, and I continue to work, to grow, and to develop as a writer, storyteller, and novelist.
