Charles de Andrade
Born in 1952, raised Roman Catholic with six siblings, Charles married his college sweet heart Gloria in 1973 when both were 20.
After college his plans to go overseas to Zambia Africa to teach never materialized as providence kept him in the US where he became an electrician. Charlie Klein, the electrician who taught him the trade, introduced him to the Biblical Christ, and to the Reverend Mark Pett.
Under Mark and Charlie's patient tutelage Charles was drawn to Christ. In the early 1980's he attended Chesapeake Seminary briefly where he started writing. The first chapter of his fourth book was written as the final for a course titled the "Attributes of God" and he has been writing ever since that experience.
His first series of books, is titled "The Steward Series" and is comprised of five books anchored by Ephesians 6:12. The books are all historical fiction, covering the period from the Vietnam war through current day, and are drawn from personal experience, stories of the period told the author, and historical events.
