Charlotte Rogers

Reading and writing are the two great loves of my life and it all started in a quaint English town when a small freckled girl picked up Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone…

Here I am 18 years later, still freckled and still seriously in love with reading. What’s not to love about something that takes you back through history, across the globe, and into someone else’s mind all from the comfort of your favourite chair?

My writing journey started at a famous Cape Town-based tourism magazine, where I was hired as an intern and slowly climbed up the ranks. Now, I work at TCB Media and I love every minute. Who doesn’t want to travel for a living?

I love all things travel, except hostels (sharing rooms with strangers really isn’t my vibe), and being able to experience different cultures. If I was forced to pick a favourite holiday, it would be my trip to the Maldives where I got to swim through crystal clear waters and even had a chance encounter with a very laid-back Hawksbill turtle.
