Charlie Finn is a writer who also works as a licensed professional counselor with adolescents and adults on issues relating to life transitions, substance abuse, and the role of spirituality when “up against it.” He has been married to Penny for 36 years and they live on 13 acres just north of Roanoke. They are the parents of two children adopted from Korea and Hong Kong who are now adults. Charlie still does most of his writing on a yellow legal pad, but, thanks to Penny, has now learned how to use a word processor and email. He glories in thunderstorms, flowers and everyday miracles.
Penny Finn is interested in the people who have been touched by Charlie's poetry and in photographing her family. She is retired from her career as a clinical psychologist, is devoted to their gardens and pets, and excels at making things, bridge, and trip-planning.
