Charlie is an Aussie who has been reading voraciously since his obviously well spent youth. He particularly enjoys fantasy and science fiction and was raised on a steady diet of Gemmell, Feist, Heinlein and Crichton. In terms of fresher writers he highly enjoys Pierce Brown, Mark Lawrence, Sylvain Neuvel, Sebastien De Castell, Brian Staveley, John Gwynne, Josiah Bancroft, Nicholas Eames and more. He is also an actor and killed Maeve in Episode 4 of HBO's Westworld. You can follow him on twitter @areadingmachine and check out his own much-neglected blog at www.areadingmachine.com for reviews and the occasional giveaway. He can also be found in need of health in Battlefield 1 on Xbox as Sofreshns0clean.
