Charlotte found her calling at age eight when a teacher labeled her a born writer, then misplaced it upon motherhood. As a journalist, she reported facts vs. fake news. At thirty-eight, she shredded the dystopian novel she wrote when she was still wide-eyed. After stints in marketing and financial planning, she rediscovered her gusto ghostwriting for the time-deprived and collaborating with authors whose flow hit a log jam. Her addiction to words that inspire, empower, enlighten, and entertain is eclipsed only by her passion for precipitous canyons and the magic of tide pools. Meares, aka Lisette Moss, blossoms in the desert Southwest with her long-time photographer partner and their two agile Aussies.
