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.

Did you know?

Boxing has been a sport since ancient times

There have been depictions of boxing since at least the 3rd millennium BCE where you can find an image of boxing in a Sumerian relief. There are also depictions of people boxing in the artworks of ancient Egypt and India. By 688 BCE, boxing was part of the Olympics held in ancient Greece. Ancient Rome adopted this sport, and fights were even held in Roman amphitheaters. Fast forward to 1867 when the Marquess of Queensberry rules were drawn up.  These formed the guidelines for the modern game of boxing. But even with the organized rules, boxing was illegal in much of the United States. As time passed and the popularity of the sport grew, it was eventually legalized. Matches were first broadcast over the radio and then on TV. Movies were created based on both real and fictional fighters. In the late 1980s, Nintendo released a boxing video game featuring Mike Tyson. And even though in modern times sports like football and MMA dominate the headlines, there is still a thriving boxing community that lives for the organized brawls
