    Indie author & poet Charlie Clouse started writing

    poetry & short stories in high school when he was sixteen years old. His free-verse writing style deals with modern day life, random thoughts, & humorous wisdom. At the age of twenty-four he published his first book of poetry. He lives in Virginia with his girlfriend & their two kids (more like young adults now). Some of his favorite poets include Allen Ginsberg, Jim Morrison, William Blake, &

    Charles Bukowski. Currently he's working on

    writing his debut novella titled Radio Songs.
