In a world filled with uncertainty and too little chocolate, Charlotte Stuart has a passion for writing lighthearted mysteries with a pinch of adventure and a dollop of humor. She began her career in academia with a PhD in communications. After spending time commercial salmon fishing Southeast Alaska, she worked as a management consultant and was the VP of HR and Training for a credit union. Currently she is the president of Puget Sound Sisters in Crime and lives and writes on Vashon Island in Washington State’s Puget Sound. She spends time each day entertained by herons, seals, eagles and other wildlife.
