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 ten years.  In addition, he has taught nearly every grade level, from second grade to adult, including on the college and Diocesan levels.  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, a guide (for busy Catholics) to making a retreat.  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.   
His major work is currently Slaying Dragons: What Exorcists See & What We Should Know, a very popular book being sold internationally in three languages, despite the fact that it is self-published.  Available on Amazon and on his own website here.
He also wrote a popular spiritual warfare manual for youth, young adults, and their parents, called Swords and Shadows: Navigating Youth Amidst the Wiles of SatanAvailable on Amazon and on his own website here.
Charles is also a dedicated “backyard farmer.” He lives in the Diocese of Charlotte, NC with his wife and three young children.
