Writer, Artist, Cosplay Maker

Charity Winiarski

    After spending seven years in the United States Navy as an aviation mechanic, Charity developed a passion for teaching others. She has attended the University of Laverne to study Psychology before transferring to California State University Channel Islands.

    Once there, she changed her major and received her Bachelor of Arts in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. She is currently continuing her educational journey, hoping to enter the teaching credential program one day.

    Charity spends her days writing, editing, and she loves anything to do with writing fiction and telling stories. When she isn’t managing the Ventura County Writers Salon, she is creating steampunk cosplay ensembles. She can usually be found with a cup of tea, reading fantasy, mystery, and sci-fi novels.

    She is the editor of the VCWS annual anthology where she has also published several of her stories and poems including MoonA.E., Reading, and The Bookkeeper. She is currently working on The Maiden of Lightning Trilogy due out in 2022.
