All about Charlie


The Inspirational Story of “Charlie” Behind the Book

Charlie Takes an Adventure is a children’s book I wrote when I was only 11 years old. It started out as a “required assignment.” My teacher gave us the task to write a book as part of a yearlong Language Arts project during my sixth grade.  At the end of the school year, my teacher returned my manuscript back to me in a “hardcover” format.  And I gotta tell you… I was pretty excited to see this book in hard cover. I was even more excited to show this book to dad. When I showed dad my book, I said, “Dad, how cool would it be if I can get this book published for “REAL” someday!!!”

Well, being 11 years old at the time, I had no clue how-to get a book published. So what happened….? My book, Charlie Takes an Adventure just sat on my book shelf collecting dust. Because of the 13 years that I tried and tried to get my book published, not one person thought it would be a good idea.

I’m not referring to publishing companies now…. I’m talking about everyone else in my life that I thought would be rooting for me was actually against me going after my dreams.

I would constantly hear the discouragement from family members, best friends, teachers and even librarians. They would tell me:

“Haley, you are way too young to publish a book!”

“Haley, it’s way too hard to publish a book!”

“Haley, it costs too much money to publish a book!”

Years later, I was encouraged and blessed by an ex-boyfriend that told my why my book hasn’t been published. He said, “Darlin,the reason your book hasn’t been published, sweetheart, is simply because you aren’t smart enough to publish a book!” 

It was what he said that really made me think twice and want to get my book published.

Two years later , Charlie Takes an Adventure was hit with an overwhelmingly positive response from parents, to children and to educators across the board. The book launched at the middle school I attended when I was in 6th grade, Logger’s Run Middle School! At this event, I gave a motivational talk to 400+ people in the auditorium, which included; students, parents, faculty, and the Superintendent of the Palm Beach County Schools.  Haley Marguerite Enterprises is in the process of developing a “Charlie” penguin stuffed animal, clothing line and “Charlie” penguin cookies, that will be in addition to the book.

Since the launch of my book, I have visited 1000’s of schools throughout America.  I have even been invited to inspire; Elementary and Middle Schools and religious afflictions with my motivational event, “Dream Big.”   I have also been selected to be keynote speaker for the Girl Scouts of America, as well as, Keller-Williams Real Estate Investment agents.
