Charlotte Denise Watson was born in 1958 in Seattle, Washington. She is the eldest of three children in a working class family. Displayed an early interest in literature. Dreamed of being a writer since third grade when Pippi Longstocking hijacked my imagination.

Charlotte was raised in Seattle, WA. She worked as a personal recognizance screener, sexual abuse counselor, mental health interviewer, child welfare worker, and volunteer coordinator for a literacy program before becoming a librarian. She is the author of the short fiction collection Killing Color (Calyx Books); two novels, One Dark Body and touch (HarperCollins); as well as a children’s book, Eli and the Swamp Man (HarperCollins). She edited the anthology Sisterfire: Black Womanist Fiction and Poetry (HarperCollins). Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in Parenting, Essence, Ms., The Seattle Times, American Visions, Goodness Portland, and numerous anthologies. She resides in the Pacific Northwest.
