Author: Charlene Keel

Veteran journalist, author and screenwriter Charlene Keel read Little Women when she was in the third grade and decided then and there to become a famous author. By the time she was in fifth grade she was sitting at her mom’s typewriter, hammering out what she knew would be the next bestseller (yes, children—that was in the dark ages before anyone had a computer at home).

Keel enjoys turning other authors’ books into film scripts and she has done screen adaptations of Patricia Hagan’s Love and War, Rebecca Brandewyne’s The Jacaranda Tree and Peggy Webb’s Where Dolphins Go, and she has worked as editor or managing editor for several national and international magazines. She also ghostwrites books and scripts for celebrities, doctors and corporate moguls.
