About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    • Me too. Most of my stories are sword & sorcery, but it helps to have the info. The one real world series I have tends to be over the top, but I could always have a character mention these facts while doubting what they just saw.
