Charlene Logan Burnett has been writing since she took her first fiction workshop in college. At that time, she was a single parent with a three-year-old daughter. She went on to earn a B.A. in Creative Writing/Theatre from Wellesley College and an M.F.A. in Playwriting from the University of California at Davis. In 2006, she was a fellow at The MacDowell Colony. Charlene’s daughter, Meghan, is now grown up. Charlene lives in rural Yolo County, California, with her husband, Bob, and their dogs, cat, rabbits, goats, and chickens. After working for many years as a senior writer at a law school, Charlene retired and is now working part time for a veterinarian. Her blog, Homesteading the Seam, chronicles (sporadically) her quest to find a simpler life so she can do the writing that feeds her spirit.
