The Author

Charles D. Fraune was the founding Theology teacher of Christ the King Catholic High School in Huntersville, NC and has been a Theology teacher there for eight years.  In addition, he has taught nearly every grade level, from second grade to adult, including on the college and Diocesan level.  He spent three semesters in seminary with the Diocese of Raleigh at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Pennsylvania.  This completed a nine-year discernment of the priesthood and religious life after which he discerned that Our Lord was not calling him to the priesthood.  He has a Master of Arts in Theology from the Christendom College Graduate School, as well as an Advanced Apostolic Catechetical Diploma.  His enjoyment of writing began over twenty years ago, and finally culminated in his first completed book, Come Away By Yourselves.  In addition to this, he has been working on books related to various aspects of the Catholic Faith, and to the powerful story of his return to the Catholic Faith after a time struggling with illness and depression.  Charles is also a dedicated “backyard farmer.” He lives in the Diocese of Charlotte, NC with his wife and three young children.
