About Charlie

Charlie is a happily married mother of many four-legged furry animals. Born in Lakeland, Florida, raised in Orchard Park, New York, and currently living in...heck, yeah! I'm in Trail, Oregon! Been here just a short while & still getting acclimated. The neighbors are awesome & the scenery wonderful... I'll try not to let it distract me from writing too much. =)

Charlie has seen her share of frigid winters, stifling hot summers, and dry windy days. You'll often find her curled up on the sofa with her laptop and a cup of tea... or if it's in the evening, a glass of red wine, letting her imagination create her next book.

Current Events

Most days I can be found pounding the keys of a laptop, writing the next scene for one of my current works. The paranormal Gargoyles of Cuchulian series is complete, as is the historical paranormal series Highland Dragons. Also, I do not have plans to write any more tales in the Tales of the Briny series at this time. The following series occasionally overlap, but can be read separately: the Wolves of Stone Ridge series, the Kontra's Menagerie series, the A Paranormal's Love series, the A Loving Nip series, and the new Shifter's Regime series. Check out my Reading Order page for specifics. Due to popular demand, I recently reopened the Kontra's Menagerie series, so stay tuned. I've also started a Beneath Aquatica's Waves series, which features aquatic shifters. While this series is set in the same world as my other paranormal series, the tales do not overlap. For a change of pace, I occasionally work on a contemporary M/M romance for the Carry Me series.

Your books make me so happy to read! I often turn to the Wolves of Stone Ridge Series when I'm feeling down or depressed. Thank you so much for writing these books! I look forward to reading more content from you!

Mary Ellner said on Dec 20, 2018 3:30 AM

Hello! It's been a pleasure reading your books. My first m/m book was "Werewolf at the Zoo", and you got me hooked. Thanks for writing such entertaining books. Have a nice Holiday!

Elfi said on Jul 2, 2018 11:56 AM

Hi, just wanted to let you know: I love your bools. They pretty much kept me sane the last couple of months. In that time I read almost everything (except the dragons) most of them more than once and I love your characters. There are a few, that I really hope will get their own stories sometime since I would really love to peek into their minds. I find it extremely interesting how much the outside few and the inside few differ. It makes everything so much more real. Oh and I just LOVE Jared and Payson - guess I have a soft spot for the slightly insane.

Jennifer Lowe said on Jun 29, 2018 5:35 AM

I just had a question. I just wanted to know if the book Channeling the Womanizer's Lust was going to be available for nook? Thank you for your time.

Luna Jay said on May 25, 2018 6:01 PM

Your books are everything to me. I have been reading since before i could remember and you are one of my favourite authors that have inspired me to continue with my own stories. Your books aren't simply lust but romance and adventure and passion. I love your books and I hope that one day I too will reach your level of writing. Thanks for giving all those that have read your books a life besides the one that we have been given, a life that inspires us to continue with our own in high hopes.

Just wondering if Haben

Cheryl said on Mar 15, 2018 6:58 AM

Hi, Love your books. Have you ever considered a book telling how the various original members of Kontra's Menagerie came to join the gang? I would love to know more about their back stories. Thanks

Micki said on Jan 7, 2017 12:00 PM

I have read all of your WSR/KM/APL/ALN and your free reads for this universe. I was wondering were you would place His Draconic Leanings -free read in the order of WSR. I absolutely love your books and can't wait to read more.

Yuukifangs13 said on Jul 4, 2016 4:19 AM

Hi! To be honest I came here for two reasons. The first is to say that I LOVE your books! I have read many of them and still going strong and I wanted you to know that (▰˘◡˘▰) The other thing is because I love re-reading your books...I'm sorry but I have to ask...will Viktor from 'Vampire's Geek' and Thad from 'Setting His Owl A-Twitter' get their own stories?? (⊙…⊙ ) Every time I read those stories my heart bleeds for them, well everyone from the flock really ╥﹏╥ Anyway, I just had to get that off my chest and I feel much lighter now ヾ(❀╹◡╹)ノ~ Here's a Happy Bunny to show my joy at your work! Keep it up as I can't wait for the next ones ε=ε=(ノ≧∇≦)ノ (/ \) ( ^.^ ) (_ _)

Bobbi said on Mar 15, 2016 7:57 PM

CONGRATS !!!! 100 wonderful stories WOW. I have read and loved most of them don't read m/f but I'm sure they are great too. Still love Spider Sense,

Micki said on Mar 8, 2016 12:30 PM

I love your series. I read you reading order list and was wondering were you would place your free read books of Wolves of Stone Ridge. Please keep up the good work.

Jenny said on Dec 12, 2015 7:47 PM

I love reading all of your books and always anticipate the next one. Do you think u can write a story about Ricky Malone on Kontra's series?? Can't wait for your next book!

Jenny said on Dec 12, 2015 7:44 PM

I love all of your books and I'm always waiting for your next one... Do you think you can write a story about Ricky Malone in the Kontra's series?? Can't wait for your next book!

Vanessa said on Oct 15, 2015 10:23 AM

Thank you doesn't seem enough your writing take's me away from life and into a wonderful world of something different. I have read all your books over and over again can never seem to stay away from them to long. Much appreciated. :)

Aliss said on Aug 16, 2015 3:41 PM

You don't know how incredibly happy I am to find you and your lovely books! Your words have woven delicious and truly drool inspiring moments that I just swoon over. Not only that, but you have an amazing talent for plot and the sweetest moments that I can't help but LOVE. Plus, the water works have come over me so many times and I can't help but cherish every good cry you inspired. That for me means that I have been truly invested in the story and the characters. I can't thank you enough for sharing with us readers your amazing talent. Please keep on writing, I look forward to every new book you write!

Net said on Jun 20, 2015 9:14 AM

I was just wondering when "Rehabilitating His Dingo" would be release for nook. Thank you.

Jade said on Jun 17, 2015 11:53 AM

I just finished a full re-read of WSR/KM/APL/ALN. Next I'm re-reading Highland Dragons and then it's on to Carry Me. I have read so many authors in the paranormal M/M genre, but I have to say very few of them are so consistently enjoyable. I love to read a happy story, and I'm always impatiently awaiting your next release. Thanks! (BTW, after reading Driving Borscht Batty, I really hope Aleksei ends up with male mate - a totally DIVA mate, that gets him wrapped around his little finger. ;))

Alison said on May 3, 2015 1:17 AM

Rereading wolves of Stone Ridge. I wondered if we would get Lex's book soon. I would love to see him have a stubborn mate

Regina said on Apr 27, 2015 6:17 PM

I fell for your books one day, I was just looking for something to read that day. And I am glad I found your books. I enjoy your series A Paranomal's Love, A Loving Nip, Kontra's Menagerie and Wolves of Stone Ridge. I can't wait for more to come.��������������������������������������

Lise said on Mar 16, 2015 10:51 AM

Hi Charlie, love all your books, but why can't I buy A nip of good cheer on ARE? Don't do Amazon, no kindle

Teena D. Bowser said on Sep 30, 2014 8:35 AM

You are one awesome author! I also have the Wolves/Kontra/Cuchulian series. I will sometimes just be browsing and not planning on purchasing anything, but as soon as a story of yours pops up, I immediately check to ensure funds are in my account to purchase the book (smile) I am disabled and in constant pain and your stories allow me to escape to another world and I appreciate that. Please continue to let your imagination fly, so that we can fly with you. Thank you for all of your hard work.

JOAN said on Jul 24, 2014 4:51 AM

I would like to know when Trusting your Rat Wolves of Stoneridge will be available? thank you

Regina said on Jul 22, 2014 9:44 PM

Who knew that a highlander and a dragon romance could be so AWESOME! I just found the dragon series and reading as fast as I can. Thank you for your vivid imagination.

Gayle said on Jun 4, 2014 7:46 AM

I have every one of the Wolves/Kontra/Paranormal series books as well as the Cuchulian series and I love them!! I wait anxiously until the next book is released so that I can catch up with (hopefully) characters I haven't read about in awhile. In fact, every 2 or 3 months I find myself starting the series from book 1 and reading all the way thru the series until I have caught up with the latest released book. Thank you so much for giving us so many hours of pleasurable and erotic reading. Now if I could only find a drool-worthy paranormal being of my own, I'd be in 7th heaven.

Megan said on May 22, 2014 4:20 AM

I love your books and almost have the full set of Wolves of Stone Ridge and Kontra's Menagarie. I am very impatiently waiting for 'Rehabilitating His Dingo' to be offered on either Amazon or the allromanceebooks website, do you know how long it normally takes for them to be offered for sale on these sites. Thank you and keep on writing your awesome books.

Carolyn said on Apr 30, 2014 0:04 AM

I stumbled on you book "Swimming with Penguins" on day on Amazon and became hooked. The world you have created is amazing. I have read almost all of your books in the Wolfs of Stone aridge, Kontra's Menagerie, and A Paranormals Love. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.

Susan said on Feb 5, 2014 2:29 PM

I love your books. The characters are so strong and likeable so we really care what happens. And the stimulating eroticism is more well done than any other author I've ever read.

mary said on Jan 27, 2014 4:46 AM

hi i was wondering when Maelgwn and bobby's story is ?

Theresa said on Jan 16, 2014 8:29 AM

I just wanted to say keep it up and thanks for all your hard work. I have enjoyed everything from the gargoyles to WSR/KM/APL as well as the Carry Me series (absolutely loved the first one, such a good story). Again, thanks for all you do.

Sarah said on Dec 5, 2013 5:52 AM

Hey, love the new book out!!! <3 It's amazing! Was wondering what happened to "Unwrapping the Alpha's Mate". It says that it was supposed to be out Dec 1st, but Extasybooks doesn't have it up... T_T Hope it comes out soon.

I have to say I bought ALL the books and read them all in 2 days INCLUDING the Kontra series that are linked. I was locked in my room for 2 days reading all your books! Im up to date with all you books and I mean MOST of your books. The only series I havent read is the " gargoyles of chuchulian. Yesterday I just read your newest book and series " Highlander " and LOVED it ^^ but what I really am a fan of and cant stop obsessing over is your : wolves of stone ridge/ kontra/ paranormal's love . Every month I check all the sites that publish your bookes ( especially extasybooks) waiting for your next release and work ^^ Im waiting for book #2 of paranormal's love right now, since I think it's the next one your putting out for DL and sale and cant wait >.< Your books make me happy that im a happy busy hermit reader lol When I fall for a series or books I get restless and wait for the next great story and adventure! Thank you for the stories and smexy love you give us in each book b(^_^)d

I just had to tell you that I love your stories, all of your shifter books are great! Your books have become an automatic buy for me...I get excited when I see that you have a new one out. Thanks for sharing your stories with us, I hope you keep on writing!

Kerriann said on May 6, 2013 6:32 AM

I came across book four in the stoneridge series and had to go back for boom one. I have now read the entire series and cant wait for more… I enjoyed them immensely.

Tina said on May 4, 2013 1:44 AM

Vicky said on May 2, 2013 7:17 AM

I read 'The Vampire's Special Lover' and fell in love with Vince and Frankie. Please write a follow up story about them. Would love to read how they continued after they arrived at the little house Vince got for them. Please continue with these two. Thank you.

christie said on Apr 7, 2013 7:41 PM

I love the way you write your stories!! From shifter to the carry me series. The only way I am able to get books is thru my nook, and you are one of the few that have most of your books available.. for that thank you!!!

Love your books! Grimes needs a story.

Tracy said on Feb 17, 2013 10:25 PM

The first book I read of yours was the first in the Wolves of Stone Ridge and I was hooked. I have bought all of the ones in that series, Kontra's Menagerie, Carry Me and now the Paranormal Love series. I love that you introduce new characters to continue each of the series, so we will be able to get updates on favorite characters and more stories with them to look forward to. I would like to know if Brice, Vee's friend, will get his HEA with a shifter though! I just finished reading Vince and Frankie's story. Loved it of course! I always get up early on days your books are released to purchase and download the book before going to work and wait impatiently til I can get home to read it! Thanks for the stories and I look forward to reading more!!

Diana Bergman Sgro said on Feb 9, 2013 1:56 AM

Absolutely love your books. They had me since the first chapters and I have been in love ever since. I look forward to when the books get release. I have a question??? What happen to the story of Bobbie and the gargoyle. I was really looking forward to it. Hopefully the book wasn't forgotten but anyways still keep them coming. Keep up the great work....

Laurie P said on Jan 9, 2013 8:12 AM

Hi Charlie! I am so happy that Kontra finally found his mate :-) thank you! I love Stone Ridge Series and Kontra's Menagerie series also. Can't wait for the next book. Thank You! Lisa

MD said on Dec 4, 2012 1:13 PM

Hey Ms Richards! I absolutely love your books! I read them over and over and over again and in 'Spider Sense' I cried when Terrence's mate left him, so I'm so happy to find out that he has his own book and I can't wait to read it! I can't stress enough how much I love your books and I'm so happy the Kontra finds his mate and I can't wait for the rest of his pack and the Stone Ridge's pack to find their mates as well. Thank you for your wonderful stories! MD

Yvette said on Nov 29, 2012 11:30 PM

Charlie, I love your books. Wolves of Stone ridge and Kontra's Menagerie are the two series I am currently hooked on. Please continue these series!!!! The stories are addictive. I am sitting on the edge of my seat to read Kontra's story. I know it will be worth the wait.

Khielira said on Nov 25, 2012 3:00 AM

I just loved your Stone Ridge and Kontra's Menagerie series. I've been reading them non stop for over a week. :D I'd love to heard more about the vampires and revisit old favorite characters. I think my favorite character non shifter Jared. :D I can't wait for more in both series. Now off to read the book that got me interested in your books in the first place, 'Spider Sense'. lol :D

Maria said on Nov 13, 2012 0:17 AM

I live in France and I love your books but I feel sorry for payson because He doesn' have a mate! He says in Book 5 of Kontra's Menagerie that he found a women as a mate! Relly? A women? Please no... Write a book about him and another men please.... love You! Kiss from France...

yaax said on Jun 19, 2012 10:20 AM

Hi. I'm so glad you made Kontra's Menagerie series and i will like to ask you if you are going to write more of Detective Catlin Hill and Gallo Ricci. I love this two characters and i want to read more of them. Thank you so much for your hard work!!

Lillian said on May 7, 2012 2:14 AM

LCA is a recessive disorder. That means both parents have to carry the gene to have an affected child. I can't believe a doctor wouldn't know this or not at least research this when mating into a family with this disorder. Otherwise love your books.

Lori Hester said on May 6, 2012 4:18 AM

You have 6 books in the Gargoyles of Cuchulian Series. Do you plan to write anymore or are you done with it?

I love your Stoneridge series. I am so happy to see the next one coming out. I was surprised to see it was about Ailean. I was sure we were going to find out what happen to Lyle. The suspense was killing me. The elephant shifter was great, I like the new shifter introduction. Keep up the wonderful stories.
