About Charlotte Riggle
A Woman of Many Hats
Charlotte Riggle has worn many different hats in her life. She is the author of the award-winning picture book, Catherine’s Pascha, along with its companion, The Saint Nicholas Day Snow. On her blog, she tells stories about saints, discusses disability, and reviews picture books that you really need to read.
She’s also a technical writer, creating documentation to help software engineers make the products they code accessible for people with disabilities.
Although she was raised as a Presbyterian, Charlotte has been an Orthodox Christian for over 30 years. On her somewhat circuitous journey into Orthodoxy, she fell in love with the saints and with the liturgical calendar of the Orthodox Church. Now she can’t imagine being anywhere else.
Charlotte has four children, a stepchild, godchildren, and two adorable grandchildren whose nursery she keeps well stocked with books. When her children were young, she did all the ordinary things that mothers do: reading stories, supervising homework and chores, taking the kids to church, and feeling quite certain she would never get enough sleep ever again. She did less ordinary things, too, like revising 504 plans, attending IEP meetings, and training a service dog for one of her kids.
Now that her children are grown, she’s sharing what she’s learned on her blog and in her books. It’s all illuminated by faith, brimming with hope, and seasoned with picture books. Sign up for her newsletter so you don’t miss a thing.
