I met Charlee in May of 2011, when she sent me a copy of a critique she had written on one of my books. It just so happened the book she critiqued The Queen of Patpong was nominated for The Edgar for Mystery Novel of the Year. She has a quality of writing that is persuasive and encourages others to read the books she praises. Charlee did a wonderful job publicizing my work. However, it is her time now, and I wish her all the best in her venture.

Charlee Harris has a way of writing that keeps her audience captive. She is able to make each character as real as if he/she were a best friend or enemy, whichever one Charlee wants you to believe. Her use of regional dialogue makes each story one of great color of character, region, and personality. A reader feels as if he/she were definitely part of that story, wanting to rout for their favorite, crush those who prey upon the unlucky and triumph with those who are able to come "out of the ashes" to make a success. Charlee has lived much of what she writes, and she invites you to live it with her. And you will live the story with her. Her writings are just that believable and memorable.

To whom it may concern:
Over the past several months I have had the privilege of reviewing much of Charlee Harris' work as a writer. I must say when I started reading Anju, in particular, I could not shut my computer off.
I love Charlee's writing style. She captures and holds her audience's attention from the first page. I do not usually read westerns or love stories, but I loved this one.
Anju can be found at Amazon. $14.95 cost. Both Books can be purchased in Kinda and Digital format. Autograph copies can be purchased from me at firstname.lastname@example.org
