A bit about Char, the person... “I grew up in southern California and have four grown kids and four grand-kids. And now we live in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, in a cabin, on the river, across from the grazing cows. It’s gloriously peaceful and quiet.” Favorite color: Red Favorite food: Moose Tracks Ice Cream Favorite activities: In addition to researching and writing speech path books and articles, and connecting with therapists, she likes to read mysteries (while soaking in the sun by the river), listen to old-time radio dramas, go to plays and concerts, go off-roading in their Jeep, travel, sing, and go to dinner with friends.
