No! Don’t make me choose! I have so many favourites, and having no new books is my ultimate nightmare. Maybe, if I really have to, I would pick ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ by Laini Taylor, or ‘The Princess Bride’ by William Goldman… or ‘Tigana’ by Guy Gavriel Kay. But don’t make me choose.
Well I guess it would have to be the same answer as my favourite book and author, ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ by Laini Taylor, because it’s such a powerful love story, full of the fantastical, and it was such an unexpected joy to read.
Charlotte grew up with her nose in a book and her head in the clouds. At fourteen, her English teacher told her that the short story she'd submitted was wildly romantic, so she decided to write a novel. Thus began her foray into epic fantasy and dystopian sci-fi, with sweeping romances, heroic adventures, and as much juicy drama as she could possibly squeeze in.
Her first novel, Arrival, was published at age seventeen, and was followed by Descent, which launched The Strangers of Paragor series, an adventure fantasy for teenagers.
She then wrote her first adult fantasy novel, Avery, the prologue of which came to her in a very vivid dream. Her second adult novel, Fury, is the first in a romantic science-fiction series called The Cure, set in a dystopian future.
Charlotte currently lives in Sydney, having just finished a Masters in Screenwriting from the Australian Film, Television & Radio School. With her television pilot script, she won the Australian Writer's Guild Award for Best Unproduced Screenplay of 2013. She will, however, always be a novelist at heart, still unable to get her nose out of the books.
