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.

· Ed (Edward) Ifkovic–Ed (Edward) Ifkovic (b. 1943) is an American educator and writer, specializing in mysteries. He has written two popular series: the Edna Ferber Mysteries, featuring the famous novelist known for Show Boat and Giant, as well as the Rick Van Lam Mysteries (pen name Andrew Lanh), which feature a private investigator Amerasian who often explores the Vietnamese community of Hartford, Connecticut.In 2009 Ifkovic published the first of his Edna Ferber Mysteries for Poisoned Pen Press in Scottsdale, Arizona. To date, there are seven volumes in the series, using the famous American writer as his amateur sleuth. Ferber lived from 1885 to 1968. Ferber’s novels were a tapestry of American locale and character and include such classic works as So Big, Cimarron, Show Boat, Giant, and Ice Palace. Her plays (with George Kaufman) include The Royal Family, Dinner at Eight, and Stage Door. Ifkovic’s mysteries follow Ferber as she visits different parts of America, often researching the locales of her new works of fiction, from her earliest days as a nineteen-year-old reporter in Appleton, Wisconsin, through her years as a celebrated member of Manhattan’s Algonquin Round Table, through her years as a internationally known writer. Ifkovic has a second mystery series, one that deals with Rick Van Lam, a private investigator living in Hartford, Connecticut. One of the bui doi (children of the dust), children with a Vietnamese mother and an unknown American GI father, Rick explores the world of the Vietnamese in America. The first was Caught Dead (2014).

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:

  • 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." [605]; [606]; [607]; [608]
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.
