Collection: Charles de Andrade

Raised Roman Catholic with six siblings, Charles married his college sweetheart Gloria in 1973 when both were 20.

After college, his plans to go overseas to Zambia, Africa, to teach never materialized as providence kept him in the US, where he became an electrician. Charlie Klein, the electrician who taught him the trade, introduced him to the Biblical Christ, and to the Rev Mark Pett.

Today, Charles is the proud father of three daughters, the grandfather of eight wonderful grandchildren and one stepson, and he and his wife Gloria live in Summerfield, Florida.

Charles is the founding member of Scribblers, a group of Christian writers, who meet for encouragement and review of each member's writing. Scribblers also serves as a network of resources for aspiring authors.
