Chuck Abdella is a History teacher at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, MA. With degrees in History from Boston College and Columbia University, Chuck has spent many long hours in the embrace of ancient and medieval civilizations. For 2 decades in July, he has directed an academic enrichment camp called College Academy, where he usually saves the world at least once per summer by spearheading an adventure during the camp’s popular Time Machine Day. Studying all that history, telling stories as a teacher, and seasonal world-saving have all inspired his writing. Chuck has written poetry and prose for at least 30 years and has been published by The Boston Globe, Worcester Magazine, The Boston College Stylus, and the St. John’s Icon. His four-book fantasy series, "The Outcasts", has been enjoyed by readers all over the world. His newest book, "The Sun and the Moon" has been described as "Abdella's best book, yet"! 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.
