Charlotte spoke with Hope Breakfast’s Sam & Duncan to explain her journey to getting signed and published, and shared a few writing tips for aspiring authors. She also spilled the beans on her new book series, explaining that even though Edie is a science-loving character, she’s actually quite different to herself!
