Charles Abood graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in Psychology and the University of Toledo College of Law. He worked as an assistant prosecutor before serving as a trial judge and then an appellate judge in Ohio. His years in the criminal justice system combined with his love of sailing influenced his debut novel, Anybody’s Daughter.
Now a full-time writer, he lives in Toledo, Ohio, with his wife Gail. They have two adult daughters. In the summer he can be found sailing on Lake Erie, with occasional trips to Lake Huron and beyond. For a break from northern Ohio winters, he and Gail have enjoyed several sailing adventures in the Virgin Islands.author sailor novelist book
