Charlotte is the author and illustrator of books for all ages of children, from the very youngest to teen novels, including the India McAllister books, the young adult novels Shift and Welcome Home or Someplace Like it and many picture books, many of which she illustrated. Her latest book is Maybe Tomorrow, a book illustrated by Ana Ramirez, which Kirkus praised as "a poignant exploration of depression, grief, and friendship."
