Biography[edit]

Charlotte Vale-Allen was born in on January 19, 1941 in Toronto and lived in England (UK) from 1961 to 1964 where she worked as a television actress and singer. She returned to Toronto briefly, performing as a singer and in cabaret revues until she emigrated to the United States in 1966.

When she married in 1970 with Walter Bateman Allen Jr., she made her home in Connecticut and she began to write. Her first book, Daddy's Girl, was written in 1971, but was initially rejected by editors who considered the topic of incest too contentious.[4][5] It was eventually published in 1980.[6]
