He was born the youngest of seventeen siblings to poor farmers in Alabama during the Civil Rights movement. As a child he suffered from a severe speech impediment and low self-esteem but overcame to become the first college graduate in his family. He met and married his college sweet-heart, and they were blessed with two beautiful children.
Years later, his teenage son suddenly went into cardiac arrest and collapsed while playing basketball at his middle school. He died moments later—the result of an unknown heart condition. Charles used writing as a coping mechanism to overcome deep depression. He penned his first book and has since written several inspirational books.
