Charlotte H Broadfoot Profile Picture

Charlotte H. Broadfoot

Essentially an old-school, beach-read type of storyteller, Charlotte H. Broadfoot writes short stories under her own name and the Alaerton Alumni Mysteries under the nom de plume: Charlotte Helion. Born in Toronto but a happy ‘Southwesterner’ for several decades, she lives and writes in London, Ontario, Canada.

The author enjoys weaving historical and factual information into the ‘fabric’ of a story, combining a warp(ed) sense of humour at times with the weft – an unapologetic punster.

The author divides each year into two: winter writing and summer activities. Time off she claims (others may ‘ex-claim’) rests and regenerates her brain.

Charlotte is a great animal lover, as evidenced by her subject matter. Her own pets, past and present, often feature in cameo roles.

She loves to do food experimentation on friends and family (sometimes a cautionary tale in itself.)

A control-freak where her personal work is concerned, eschewing A.I. completely, she believes in original ideas and creations, drawing from personal experience and passions. Designing her own cover art and content imagery is also mandatory ‘in her book.’ (Dabbling in various other arts and crafts, when time permits, however, is considered a treat.)
