Charlotte S. Snead
Charlotte S. Snead graduated from Duke University with a BA in Psychology in 1963 at age 20, striving to be free from the chaos that was her home of origin as the daughter of an alcoholic. Motivated to help other families, she earned a Masters of Social Work from the University of North Carolina in 1966. She worked with children in a foster home, unwed mothers, and adoptions, prior to becoming a stay-at-home mother of four natural children, an adopted daughter who overcame fetal alcohol learning disabilities, and a foster daughter. One child and two grandchildren are adopted, motivating her pro-life work.
In 1985, Charlotte founded a pregnancy help ministry and still serves on that board. She has been active in the pro-life movement for many years, writing bi-monthly for Life Matters, the state pro-life publication, and op-ed pieces in state newspapers. She has been published in The Pentecostal Evangel and Harpstring and has spoken in schools, meetings, conferences, and on Christian television and radio, as well as interviews with secular media.
The author of His Brother’s Bride, Invisible Wounds, and the Singing Over Me novels, she has published articles and short stories, including “Earned Love,” in OakTara’s romance anthology I Choose You, and “Becoming Grandmother,” which won in the Tales 2Inspire contest (2012) and was published in the Topaz Collection.
As a mentor for her local Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), she teaches young moms to love their husbands, train their children, and serve God. She recognizes the need for edifying, entertaining, and evocative Christian fiction that puts romance in marriage.
