Charlie  Lovett

Charlie Lovett has been a children's playwright since 2001, but he is also a novelist and author of over a dozen books.  His novel The Bookman's Tale, was published by Viking Press in May 2013, and will also appear in several foreign translations.  With a plot line involving William Shakespeare, The Bookman's Tale is sure to appeal to theatre lovers.

Charlie was born in Winston-Salem, NC, and graduated from Summit School and Davidson College, where he received his B.A.  in Theatre in 1984.  His first book, Alice on Stage, was published in 1990, and he has since written several books on the subject of Lewis Carroll.  He owns one of the largest collections of Lewis Carroll books and related materials in the world.  In 1994, he enrolled in the MFA-Writing program at Vermont College, where he researched and wrote most of the critically acclaimed Love, Ruth:  A Son's Memoir.  He is also the author of The Fat Lady Sings, a young adult novel published in 2011.

Charlie now lives in Winston-Salem with his wife, Janice.  He served for over a decade as Writer-in-Residence at Summit School. He has one other play published with Contemporary Drama Service, Becoming Shakespeare.

"My philosophy of drama for children has developed over many years... Rather than assuming that children are incapable of understanding certain words and ideas and that they are broadly divided into 'stars' and those who can't act, I assume that children's performances will rise to meet the level of the material they are given and that at the elementary level, all children should be given equal opportunities on stage.  My plays for elementary students, therefore, tend to have a fairly even distribution of parts and are filled with humor and cultural allusions that provide learning opportunities for the students and fun for the parents and teachers."
— Charlie Lovett
