During a one-year book tour to launch The Twelve Gifts of Birth, Charlene and her husband enjoyed living in an RV in 48 of the 50 states. The Twelve Gifts collection of books began in 1987 when Charlene wrote The Twelve Gifts of Birth as a life message for her own, then teenage daughters. Twelve years later she published the book and discussed its message in schools, shelters, prisons, churches, and hospitals throughout the United States. The Twelve Gifts for Healing was written while Charlene was in treatment for advanced non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2001. “Cancer led me to examine my convictions and look at these life gifts more deeply. Truly, they helped me heal,” she says. The Twelve Gifts in Marriage comes from the ups and downs, ebbs and flows, and hurts and healings that are a part of every long-term marriage. The Thirteenth Gift is a novella that celebrates the wonderment that dwells in our hearts and helps us to see the world with reverence, gratitude, and joy. Touchstones: Stories for Living The Twelve Gifts offers true tales that demonstrate life's gifts at work in everyday life. Charlene loves to read, write, hike, swim, dabble with paint, travel, and meet and talk with readers. She loves to play with her grandchildren and to create ways for all children to better recognize and appreciate their inner gifts and resources. Helping children of all ages to build inner strength and self worth is the intention of Charlene's work.

Extended content

grew up connected to her spiritual world through dreams and visions. Her first experience hearing the words, “I love you” was at the age of seven years old through a vision; this left a profound imprint in her soul. She expresses this given love through her creativity - she has written two books. The first book is called, "The Me I Never Was" - a designed matrix of the mind, soul, and spirit embarking on the journey into “Oneness.” Using the creative flow of words through different genres of writing, the pages become alive; the words reaching into your quiet hours, speaking only to you and gently guiding you to a place of peace and acceptance of the innate seed planted into you before your earthly birth. The images on the pages are artistically created to give you vision of the mind and to see beyond the box we have been put in. "The Me I Never Was" is a given gift to all who seeks to live in Truth! It has come to the aid of the seeker in stripping the bandages of bondage! It has come to unchain the lies that have kept your spirit imprisoned to the soul's experiences! “The Me I Never Was” has come through the creative world of writing and art to bring you… Freedom! It strips the garments that have been placed upon you and standing before yourself in the Pure Love of Acceptance!

Francine's second book is a children's book called, "A Girl Named Charity." Young Charity Still has one wish. She longs to be free, just like the guinea hen from her ancestral land of West Africa. She wants to be strong and free to roam the land. Instead, she is a slave, one of many on the Steele plantation in Maryland. It’s the only life she’s ever known.

Growing up before the Emancipation Proclamation becomes law, her world consists of picking cotton, beans, and corn in the hot fields and slopping the pigs. She mourns the death of her mother, survives the influenza running rampant through the slave quarters, endures beatings for her mistakes, and experiences being sold to a new owner. Through it all, Charity dreams of freedom and what it might mean.

"A Girl Named Charity" is based on a true story, this picture book for young children puts a personal face on the history of slavery. It teaches that whatever the circumstances in life—good or bad, joyful or painful—they can be overcome. It’s important to have, hope, faith, and belief in yourself that the spirit within will provide the strength to overcome any obstacle.

Born in Camden, New Jersey and a lifelong resident of New Jersey, Francine has dedicated her life to the world of fine arts, writing and music.

In 2005, she began The Legacy Of Promise program, consisting of an art exhibit, books, music and historical - inspirational speaking. Her passion and promise to her sister Bonita Jean Still Austin - who passed away at the age of 36 years old became her inspiration. As she went around giving presentations she heard the cries of people - "Who will carry our legacy? Where are the young people in all of this? How can we get the next generation involved?" This deeply disturbed her and her creative mind began to flow and she thought, "I wouldn't have to go far to find the answers - we must live by example." Some years back prior to "The Legacy Of Promise" program she asked her sons Bryant and Brandon, "Sons... would you continue your legacy with the gifts and talents you have if anything were to happen to me? And would you like to join me in the message of The Legacy Of Promise?" They found it an honor to support her in their historical legacy with their musical gifts. They have seen and heard about her struggles in life - and along the way they have experienced some of the pain with her. So, they came on board contributing with their musical gifts and became a part of the great tapestry. At this point she felt the strong presence of her forefathers and the grace of Providence instructing her to combine all of their creative gifts together; giving the program a total completion.

Francine says, "We all take part in the great tapestry of life, whether we recognize it or not. As I grow in life I'm finding that we all are struggling in one way or another. Our struggles aren't much different from the days of old - our clothing and technology have evolved, but our desire to live a rich and fulfilled life is the same."

Francine continues to give inspirational lectures throughout the community libraries, schools, churches and senior citizen communities - in hope to bring enlightenment of history through inspirational speaking, books, music and art. The Legacy of Promise has come to fruition passed onto her through her ancestors and The Great Providence.

Her illustrative art work can be found on the cover/illustrations of author Charles L. Blockson book “The Ballad Of The Underground Railroad” - cover and illustrations for Dr. Jacqueline Leonard of Temple University "Culturally Specific Pedagogy in the Mathematics Classroom" - Renaissance oil painting for the dusk jacket of the 2005 revised edition, "The Underground Rail Road" by William Still published by Plexus Publishing and was critique by The Princeton Info., comparing the art work to the great master Diego Rivera's work. The most recent Renaissance oil was a portrait painting for Dr. Mike Murdock, founder of The Wisdom Center Fort Worth, Texas.]Malogical7 (talk) 03:14, 16 May 2015 (UTC)<ref></ref> >>

Here is a list of people (mainly novelists) who have stub entries in (NNDB). The NNDB is of questionable reliability and should not be quoted as a source in Wikipedia and independent assessments will have to be made regarding notability:

<need to move to more-appropriate section>

  • E-fiction A relatively-recent phenomenon is the commercial (for-profit) "self-publication" of strictly- or primarily-electronic fiction under the banner of longtime "E-tailers" such as Amazon. This is NOT a vanity press as the author doesn't pay for the privilege of publication: they invest only their time and effort, and the "publisher" is merely a retailer who takes a percent-of-sale, not an up-front fee (in effect, the authors are paying for the publisher's "retail channel"). It might be likened to an author mill in some ways, but due to the low costs all round (and the lack of any guaranteed "vanity market" of the authors friends/family), it appears to be a different phenomenon. This is LIKE Web fiction, but usually offered via Amazon, Lulu, or the like, typically for low entry price (e.g. 99¢ per chapter for a novel, etc). Authors who are popular on fiction forums sometimes make the jump to professional writers (albeit untraditionally so) in this way. The topic is too-briefly mentioned as a minor element of the existing article Self-publishing#Electronic_.28E-book.29_Publishing, but appears to merit its own entry, as modern electronic means have enabled a sea-change in the older concept of "self-publishing." [644]; [645]; [646]; [647]
The term "E-fiction" (that I've chosen) is perhaps overly-broad for the topic (the phrase connotes both commercial and free fiction) AND overly-narrow (the same model might apply to non-fiction); I note that "e-pub" is already in use, largely in the non-fiction realm. "E-fiction" might be useful as an umbrella for linking all these related topics. No other phrase has occured to me, that might concisely describe this phenomenon (and therefore be apt for titling an article). Feel free (obviously!) to use any or all of the (over-long?) text above in the process of creating a proper Wikipedia article.
