Introducing, Charles Burgess:

Charles Burgess, born August 15, 1970 in Providence, Rhode Island, moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin as a child and attended high school at Pulaski, North Division, and Washington. Upon finishing high school, Charles decided to take a Bank Specialist job at State Farm Insurance Company. While working there, Charles completed his first book titled, “Homies”.

Since then, Charles has taken the literary craftsmanship more seriously and began writing novels fulltime. “Don’t Say You Do If You Don’t”,  “Bee-Wildered”, "The Ghetto Sopranos: Rise of the Family", "Midnight Love" are the recent titles completed by Charles Burgess.

Cricket & Honey, Instant Message Me, Trigger Words, Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say, are just a few that Charles has in the pipeline.
