About Me

My name is Charlie King. I am an author from Croydon, England. My first books, The Lyons Orphanage followed by The Lyons Legacy are self-published while Lizzie's Dream Journal has been published by CAAB Publishing. There has been positive feedback on both books which is a great vindication for myself in regards to writing.


I always considered writing to be a hobby no matter the content. That is why I like to use this site for my own personal blog where I discuss topics like sport, film and TV, society and observations of an author's life as well as write satirical articles to bring a lighter side to my writing.

I have had an interest in English and writing ever since I was young and it has stuck with me throughout my education. I have a BA Hons in Journalism with English Language from the University of Portsmouth.  When I finished university, I found that Journalism was no longer for me but I still loved to write so instead I wrote in my spare time.

The thought of writing a book crossed my mind many times over the years; I even tried to write a book a long time ago around the age of ten/eleven but it was terrible and lucky not seen by any eyes other than my own.  The thought of that book put me off from thinking I could write a decent book. However, with time and the right idea, the writing improved but there is always room for improvement


I enjoy the balance of writing and creating stories with living in the real world, working as a legal assistant in a law firm.


I will continue to write no matter how many people read it. Writing is and always has been my passion.
