Charlotte and the Wooden Castle

My novella, entitled “Charlotte and the Wooden Castle” is now available for purchase. Read a sample here.

Charlotte is a dreamer, always fantasizing about the world rather than exploring it. Seeking an opportunity to escape her stagnant life, she decides to study abroad in a charming village tucked away in north Oxfordshire. Soon after her arrival, she experiences an eclipse, where the dark and light parts of her past and unknown future overlap in the heart of Wroxton Abbey.

When I first stumbled upon the opportunity to study at Wroxton College, it was routine for students to apply for a scholarship to cover part of the cost. This seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to use my passion to earn something tangible, a summer abroad. I boarded my flight with no expectations, just want for knowledge and fun. What I found in England completely changed me, and as a result, I made decisions that have shaped the life I am living today. For a year I stayed immersed mentally in the story which inspired me to create Charlotte, and for a year I faced the consequences of the choices I made. I have picked apart the end result and finally freed it from my clutches. It is a quick read, and I hope that you enjoy it, talk about it, and that the story lingers in your heart as it has in mine.
