Charlie, Heywise Staff

Crossword WriterCharlie, Heywise Staff

Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Type in your answer. If you're correct, both clues will turn green. To change any incorrect answers, you can either hit backspace to erase each letter, one at a time, or click at the beginning of the word and simply retype it. You can also navigate the crossword using your arrow keys. Start by clicking on a box, and then just tap your arrow keys to move around the puzzle.
