Filmmaker & NovelistA small-town Texas native, e.E. Charlton-Trujillo wanted to win an Oscar at the age of four and be the drummer for KISS. Her dreams would not be dashed. In 2014, she won a children's literature equivalent to an Oscar from the American Library Association via the Stonewall Award for her third novel FAT ANGIE. KISS is only a matter of time. Charlton-Trujillo won the prestigious Delacorte Dell Yearling Award for her first novel Prizefighter En Mi Casa which garnered a number of accolades. Her second novel, Feels Like Home, received critical praise and FAT ANGIE (see above) rocked out pretty nice. Her unique book tour to empower youth on the fringe is the subject of the feature documentary At-Risk Summer. That experience allowed her and author C.G. Watson to co-found the nonprofit Never Counted Out. It is a multi-tier organization that offers access to various arts and books to youth.Charlton-Trujillo has been featured in the Huffington Post, MTV, Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews. Her fourth novel, WHEN WE WAS FIERCE, releases in 2016.http://www.nevercountedout.com
