How it Began
Charlie Golding began his “storytelling” career while carpooling his two children and neighborhood kids to an elementary school across town. To the children’s joy, Charlie would ask each one to give him a unique character, which he then incorporated into a fantastic story. The goal was to create a story that would entertain them for the duration of the trip. Their drive didn’t just take them across town but to far-off lands––places where goblins frightened trolls with just their thoughts, geese sang beautiful symphonies in the key of B Flat, and fairies chased away bad dreams. Residing in Phoenix, Arizona, Charlie continues to craft stories that delight children of all ages.
