About Charlene Wexler

Charlene Wexler is the author of the books Lori, Murder Across the Ocean, Murder on Skid Row, and Milk and Oranges.

         Her fiction, essays, and poetry have appeared in several publications and on many websites.

         Wexler’s first novel, Murder on Skid Row, is the story of a double-murder on Chicago’s Skid Row in the 1960s. Murder on Skid Row won an international Apex Award of Excellence from Communications Concepts, a writing think tank outside Washington, DC.

         Milk and Oranges, Wexler’s second book,is a collection of her short fiction and essays examining life, love, and the tragedy and comedy of the human condition. Whether she is tackling fiction or essays, Wexler writes from the heart. With a keen eye for detail and a way of looking at the world a bit sideways, Wexler’s writings in Milk and Oranges entertain while they make you think.

         Milk and Oranges received a Bronze Award in the Women’s Issues category of the eLit Book Awards competition sponsored by the publishing services firm Jenkins Group Inc. of Traverse City, MI, and a rare international Grand Award in the Apex Awards competition by Communications Concepts.

         In Wexler’s second murder mystery, Murder Across the Ocean, a 70-something grandmother going to visit her granddaughter in London has a night of passion with an old boyfriend—and then discovers his bloody corpse in the morning in the bed where they had made love. Who killed him? Our heroine sure is going to find out—and along the way she learns family secrets that had been buried in the Holocaust.

         Wexler is active with the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity, the Authors Marketing Group, the Chicago Writers Association, Children’s Memorial Hospital philanthropy, the Geneva Lake Museum, Literary Fiction Writers, the Love is Murder Conference, Lungevity (an organization that fights lung cancer), the McHenry Bicycle Club, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Mystery Writers of America, the National Council of Jewish Women, the Richmond IL Book Club, Sisters in Crime, the Jewish United Fund, and the University of Illinois Alumni Association.

         Wexler is on Facebook and Twitter. She is married to Dr. Sam Wexler, one of the top experts in dental history in the world.

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.” Email her at info@charlenewexler.com, or learn more about her at www.charlenewexler.com.
