Chuck Abdella is a history teacher at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, MA. He describes himself as: “a history teacher, indie writer, seasonal world-saver, superhero (if you believe the rumors), and youth softball coach. Not necessarily in that order.” Chuck’s four-book fantasy series, The Outcasts: The Lies of Autumn, The Darkest Forests, Whispers of Spring, and A Flicker of Hope, has been enjoyed by readers on six continents. In 2021, Chuck started a new YA fantasy series, set in a high school. The Sun and the Moon and its 2022 sequel, Shadows and Stars speak to anyone who has ever wondered if their high school teachers are from another world! Chuck has written for over 30 years and his writing has appeared in the St. John’s Icon, the Boston College Stylus, Worcester Magazine, and The Boston Globe. When he’s not spending his time reminding adolescents that the Romans were much cooler than they thought, Chuck enjoys reading, coaching youth softball, playing basketball, and watching Boston sports. He is grateful for the support of his loving wife and daughters.
