My love My life
To so many of us, family is everything, and a lot of the time we take our family for granted. One year ago, my eldest daughter Jorden, moved from our small city in Alberta Canada to Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. We always knew she’d leave because our city was not big enough for her star to shine. So, one month after her eightieth birthday she was gone.
That first year my husband and our two younger kids, Shawnee and Lucas visited Jorden five times, and she came home once. We knew we wouldn’t be able to continue with so many trips, so Christmas of 2017, we decided to surprise all three kids with a trip to Disney Land (our family photo outside the gates).
Now although kids grow up, move out, move away and start their own lives (after all that’s what we raise them to do), it sucks not having them around all the time, or talking to them daily. I defiantly appreciate my mom on a whole new level now.
So, these three kids, and this amazing husband of mine (James) not only are they my true loves, but they are my life. I would do anything for them. This trip was and is such a happy memory for me. My girls bonded (they have almost 5 years between them), my son, husband and I had some amazing laughs and we enjoyed three stress free days in the land where dreams come true. Okay stress free may be a lie because my son absolutely loved space mountain and I am 100% terrified of it, I actually had nightmares. Aside from that though, it was great. Cherish every moment you have with your loved ones, appreciate each and every one of them and be grateful for the memories you can create. Thank you for letting me share my memory and family with you all.
Charlotte Blackwell, author of The Embrace Series, is delighted to have the opportunity to follow her dreams of writing. She would love to share a little bit about herself with you now.
Charlotte was born in October of 1976. On the day of her birth, Charlotte’s father was racing stock cars, while her two older sisters watched from the stands as their father crashed through the wall of the racetrack. Within moments, the stock car he was driving came back through the wall, and he won the race. He took his two daughters and hurried to the hospital for the birth of his third daughter, Charlotte.
Raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Charlotte enjoyed swimming, singing (although not so great at it) and writing her thoughts down. She never shared her passion for writing with anyone, and it got put on the back burner. As Charlotte grew, she found a new passion in medicine. She became the athletic trainer for her high school men’s basketball team. Helping the team through their injuries are some of her best memories as a teen.
After the birth of her first daughter, Jorden, Charlotte moved to Calgary, Alberta where she returned to college for her practical nursing certificate. During her schooling, Charlotte became pregnant with her second daughter, Shawnee. Due to complications, Charlotte was put on bed rest and had to step away from school. Shawnee was born, but was not breathing. The staff worked to resuscitate the small baby, and succeeded. Charlotte returned to school only six weeks later and completed her course. She began working with children, and eventually in the special care nursery for ill and pre-term babies.
Charlotte and James finally decided to get married in 2005 and completed their family with a son, Lucas, in 2006. Lucas was born six weeks early and had three surgeries by one month old. Today, all three of their children are happy, healthy and very active.
Charlotte and James live with their children and their many animals, just outside of Calgary, Alberta. They cherish every moment they have together as a family, and hope to soon travel the world. James and the children have been great supporters of Charlotte from day one, and continue to cheer her on along the way.
Charlotte has a strong passion for young adult novels, especially those in the paranormal or dark fantasy genres. As she continues to work on The Embrace Series, Charlotte is also working on a mainstream romance. She will continue to update this site with her work and what is next, and she thanks you all for your support and encouragement.
If you would like to contact Charlotte for an interview, speaking engagement, to ask her a question, leave a personal comment, or anything to do with her novels, you can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She does her best to reply to everyone.
