About the Author

Charles Christian was an English lawyer and a Reuters correspondent-turned-writer, editor, award-winning tech journalist, and sometime werewolf hunter. Charles was born a chime-child with a caul and grew up in a haunted medieval house by the harbor in the Yorkshire seaside town of Scarborough. According to folklore, a caul-shrouded chime-child can't drown at sea but can see and talk to faerie folk and also has protection against spells cast by malevolent witches and sorcerers.

His father's side of the family was related to Fletcher Christian, the leader of the infamous 18th-century mutiny on HMS Bounty, while his mother's side was descended from Anne Hunnam (or Marchant) the "Witch of Scarborough," who was acquitted of casting a fatal spell on a child in 1652. And "yes," an English
newspaper once really did commission Charles to take part in a werewolf hunt on the night of a full moon. Spoiler alert: he didn't find one. He lived in Waveney Valley, England.
