Charlie Wetzel became a full-time writer in his mid-thirties after working as a sexton, dishwasher, roustabout, waiter, chef, teacher, car salesman, and college dean.

He wrote The Candy Shop, a short film that won the Crystal Heart Award at the 2011 Heartland Film Festival. Charlie and Stephanie, his wife of twenty-five years, have three children and live in north Georgia. When he's not writing, Charlie is reading, cooking, running, watching movies, and training in martial arts. Stephanie Wetzel has been her husband Charlie's primary editor for as long as they've been married, including for every book Charlie has written with author John C. Maxwell. A writer in her own right, she blogged for a decade-back when blogging was still cool. She now partners in writing with Charlie and works with other authors. Stephanie loves being wife to Charlie and mom to three young adults. She forces herself to run with Charlie, but she actually enjoys reading, learning, traveling, and eating former chef Charlie's cooking. Stephanie grew up obsessed with horses and competed as a teenager at extremely low levels in local shows. No longer a regular rider, she still occasionally gets a tear in her eye at the sight of a horse.
