Be'ing: The Ravine
One afternoon when the wind was blowing in a peculiar direction, Charles said, 'I think I'll write stories for children!' For a long time successful guitarist and music producer, this was a step out of the box. So, with his wife Norine, who had been writing for pleasure since she was a child, they dove in! They focused each of the stories on delivering a subtle but clear value or life lesson that parents would want their children to grow up learning. Values like true friendship, kindness, sharing, handling change, developing respect, responsibility etc. With inspiration from their own children and the lessons they learned parenting, the stories came from the heart. Both professionals, Charles is a musician/composer and Norine is certified Kundalini Yoga teacher. They live in Mission, British Columbia with their cat Ariel (the inspiration for Keezer)where they produce CD's for children, yoga, and jazz. Charles also is a certified instructor in Aikido and Norine runs workshops for Anxiety/Depression and Healing the Chakras.
