Welcome, to Charles Imagines

I write

Charles Sterling’s mission is to make his readers feel like an excited child again through the magic of writing. But first, he needs to have his morning coffee or else the magic wont work.

Taking genres and themes inspired by gothic pixie fantasy like Alice in Wonderland or Tim Burton’s movies, he loves to create whimsical worlds with dark undertones.

His 9th book, “Dreams of Shadows” coming August 1st!
