Lainey-Jo Charles was born and raised in Charlotte. She loves the contrast of the fast-paced city with the slower-paced suburbs, as well as the escape to the peacefulness of the country after a short drive.

She’s loved books her whole life and was an avid reader from a very early age,┬áso when she got the chance to marry her imagination with the written word, she grabbed on with both hands and hasn’t let go.

She enjoys reading and writing in several different genres, and has a blast coming up with all sorts of stories for her readers.

Lainey-Jo loves caffeine and desserts, and can always be bribed with chocolate frosting or birthday cake. She lives in the South with her husband (aka the love of her life), who loves reading her stories as much as she does writing them.
