Claim your space. Draw a circle of light around it. Push back against the dark. Don’t just survive. Celebrate.

Charles Frazier

Charles Frazier (born November 4, 1950) is the bestselling author of Nightwoods, Thirteen Moons, and Cold Mountain—the last not only won a National Book Award but was adapted into a 2003 film starring Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, and Renée Zelwegger (who won an Oscar for her role). Frazier’s native North Carolina has served as inspiration for his historical novels; in fact, the story goes that his wife persuaded him to quit his teaching job at North Carolina State University to write full-time, which resulted in the publication of Cold Mountain.
