More About Charlotte Greene
Charlotte Greene was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania; her father was fire chief there during the Depression. She graduated from the New York Institute of Photography in New York City, where she met several popular singers (including Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Vaughn Monroe whose photos are found in this book) while doing photography work in the New York night clubs. After getting married, she has lived in Cherry Point, North Carolina; Santa Ana and Orange, California; then in 1947, moved to Spokane, Washington, where she still resides. Over the years, the author has done freelance photography, specializing in weddings, and has earned a bachelor's degree in applied psychology from Eastern Washington University. Charlotte's first book "Recalled by God: A Love Story" was written in memory of her husband Frank Greene, a former Jesuit, who died of cancer. Cancer support and bereavement therapy groups find this first book a consoling favorite among their members. The candle in the last chapter of "Smokin' the Chair" is the author's beloved flame, Frank.
Charlotte Greene currently resides in Altoona. Charlotte Greene was born in 1925.
