Charlotte Austin is a writer and editor who often writes about her experiences as an international mountain guide. Her work has appeared in many publications and anthologies, both in print and online.
After growing up in the Pacific Northwest, she went to school in Scotland (the University of Saint Andrews), Seattle (the University of Washington), and Alaska (the University of Alaska Anchorage.) After school, she ventured into the world of professional writing, editing, and consulting — and has never looked back. Words have been Charlotte’s paintbrushes since a young age, and her stories whisper truths that the rest of us might be afraid to vocalize.
She is also an EMT, an Amateur Ham Radio Operator, a Wilderness First Responder, a Leave No Trace (LNT) trainer, and maintains current AIARE (American Institute for Avalanche Education) Level 2 certification.
