Hi. I’m Charlene Ross.
I live on the Los Angeles/Ventura County borderline. Yes, in the suburbs. But even though I’m a suburban wife and mom (which kind of rocks by the way) I’m trying my best to live a life much more interesting than that sounds. I just sent my son off to college (sob!) and my daughter is in high school. They keep me on my toes as they are different in every single way.
I love reading (though I rarely find the time), watching TV (always seem to have time for that), drinking coffee at 5:00AM all by myself in peace and blissful quiet while I write (or waste time on Facebook), drinking wine – red or white (though tequila or vodka will do), music, exercising (okay, that’s a lie – I hate exercising, but I really love how I feel when I am done), the beach (best place on earth), going out with my girlfriends, and spending time with my husband and two wonderfully frustrating spectacular children (oh crap, should I have put that first instead of last?).
The best way to describe my blog would be a humorous slice of life. (Erma Bombeck, I want to be you when I grow up!)
Oh, and I wrote some books. Well, I co-wrote this one. I also wrote a novel called Another Shot at Love (February 2016 Velvet Morning Press) and a novella (the prequel to Another Shot at Love ) called Love on the Rocks (with Salt). I also wrote a super short pre-prequel called Tequila Slammer that takes my character Laney back to her college days.
I also have a monthly newsletter (just once a month, I promise) where you’ll hear book news, a short funny story and a recommendation for something cool. You can sign up here.
Would you like to work with me? I am available for product reviews, sponsored posts, brand ambassadorships, blogger outreach, and hey, if you want to send me on a trip around the world (with or without my family) I’m up for that too.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
