Charlotte WardHow long have you been in Greenville?
8 months.Most interesting fact about you:
I have ghostwritten 9 books for female authors ranging from celebrities and influencers to wedding planners and midwives.Your background:
I was born and grew up in Wiltshire in the UK, near to the historic village of Lacock, where scenes from Pride & Prejudice, Downton Abbey, and Harry Potter have all been filmed.
At the age of 17, I had my fortune read by a psychic who said I would marry an American, write a book about how to mend a broken heart, and be part of a big global movement to save the world. Two decades on, I am married to my American soulmate, the author of a book about getting over a break-up, and an environmental activist advocating for climate change solutions!
My mother is British and my father is Australian. They met and fell in love in Greece, where they were both living at the time. From an early age, they introduced me to new places and different cultures as we visited countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Dubai, on our way to my dad's hometown of Brisbane.
Over the years I have lived in London, Sydney, St Louis, Chicago, and San Francisco. I am excited to put down some roots in Greenville and in a short time it has quickly felt like home to me.Currently reading or watching:
