Meet the Hosts
The Rainforest Writing Retreat enters its fourth year in 2017, having sold out every year as more and more writers discover the magic and inspiration the retreat provides. Below are the hosts that make it all happen!
Charmaine is a co-host for the Rainforest Writing Retreat and point of contact for attendee bookings, managing of presenters guests and event facilitator.
When not explaining the dangers of underestimating a fairy or the best spots to hide a body, Charmaine hosts creative writing clubs for kids and teens, and is now hosting online workshops (iTeenWrite). Her books include My Zombie Dog, Dognapped? A Dog Show Detective Mystery and Undead Kev.
Anthony co-hosts the Rainforest Writing Retreat with Charmaine as assistant event and presenter manager, along with being the technology and marketing coordinator.
Founder of Book Cover Café, an award-winning publishing services and support vendor. With a combined experience of 25 years in publishing, Anthony and his team of ninjas help authors self-publish the smart way and launch their books to a world-wide audience while maintaining control and flexibility.
