In 2018, Charlotte Beard, a Systems Analyst, turned into full time writing consultant, as she has been writing since grade school. Being young and impressionable, a high school computer lab teacher convinced her to ditch her future endeavors for studying art in college to pursue computer programming. He convinced her that the arts would not meet her financial needs. She never stopped writing in her free time but did lay aside art to pursue a computer degree with an emphasis in Information Management Systems. After more than 20 years, the born writer could not find contentment and returned full swing to her love of writing.Besides running her own business, Charlotte writes the front-page stories weekly for the Community News - St. Louis County publication. Her writing has also been featured in online publications. Charlotte finds her greatest joy in writing that inspires others or writing that helps others in their goal endeavors.
