Author Archives: Charline Ratcliff

Charline Ratcliff has an unusual educational background in that her parents removed her from school near the completion of sixth grade. While her parents had no interest in furthering her education, she on the other hand did. Charline has always loved to learn and thus, shortly after turning twelve, she began her solo literary journey of learning. By age sixteen, Charline had traveled and/or lived in every state except Alaska, and she has also traveled through a good portion of Europe. Charline would tell you that she fell into writing by accident – that it wasn't until her first book, The Curse of Nefertiti, was actually published when she realized that she wanted to be a writer. Shortly thereafter, during the course of securing reviews for her own book, she noticed that there was a huge need for book reviewers. Having a sincere desire to help others, and understanding the importance of an impartial review, Charline began reviewing in early 2010. Nowadays, Charline divides her time between writing adult historical fiction, children’s books, online articles, reviews and interviewing other authors. When she’s not writing or spending time with friends and loved ones, she works on her line of all-natural soy candles and of course travels – making certain to enjoy the beauty of the world around her.
