April 17, 2011 - PRLog -- The short story "Abracadabra Magic" by author Charlene Webster has been published on the One Bright Star website. It deals with how a terminally ill child's spirit becomes free of his dying body.

The One Bright Star organization is a resource for families who have lost a child. The One Bright Star URL is http://www.onebrightstar.org/.

The author of the article is Charlene Wexler, who also wrote the novel "Murder on Skid Row," which received an Apex Award of Excellence from Communications Concepts in 2010.

In "Murder on Skid Row," dentist Dr. Mel Greenberg opens his new dental office “to help the downtrodden” in Chicago’s Skid Row during the 1960s. Instead, he finds himself in a world for which his working-class upbringing never prepared him, where a day might bring anything from a philosophy-quoting patient to a knife held at his neck. Eventually, he finds himself a suspect in murder.

A graduate of the University of Illinois, Wexler has worked as a teacher and bookkeeper and as “a wife, mom, and grandmother,” she said. In recent years, Wexler’s lifelong passion for writing has led her to create numerous essays and short stories.

Her work has appeared in publications including North Shore Magazine, the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry’s Vision magazine, Alpha Omegan magazine, and the Gazette newspaper of Chicago. On the Web, Char’s work has appeared on WayCoolDogs.com, Funny Cat Stories, One Bright Star and on the website for Nancy L. Young-The Transitioning World of Animals.

“I have always used writing as therapy,” Wexler said. “Now I have the opportunity to pursue it as a career.”

Wexler is active with the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity, Children’s Memorial Hospital philanthropy, Lungevity (an organization that fights lung cancer), the National Council of Jewish Women, the Jewish United Fund, The McHenry Bike Club, and the University of Illinois Alumni Association.

She and her husband, dentist Dr. Sam Wexler, live in Illinois.

Her advice for other aspiring writers—even grandmothers like herself—is to “follow your dream. You can do it, and it’s never too late.”
