A Perfect 10 with Win Charles


Just a note before today’s Perfect 10

The requests to be interviewed on my humble blog skyrocketed over the past month or so. As a result, I am going to be featuring an author just about every day from now until the end of 2017. I considered letting the series spill over into 2018, but I like to cook up a new interview format each year.

Please enjoy the bonus interviews that will be posted. I’ll likely post regular original content as well, but potentially not in as high a volume to give my creativity muscle a rest.


In this edition of A Perfect 10, I have the pleasure of featuring Author Win Charles.

Please enjoy this special installment of A Perfect 10

About Win’s Book

Book CoverAt age 24 I decided to tell my story. Writing this autobiography gave me the opportunity to pay tribute to my family members who are passionate about life and have instilled this passion in me. My parents’ extraordinary support, encouragment, and pure love were my foundation as I navigated life, overcame obstacles, and achieved successes as a young woman with cerebral palsy. I have to pay full tribute to my mother, who died in August 2010. From her I learned to listen to my own voice as a guide to making life choices. She taught me to always expect the best from myself.

My hope is that this book will provide insight into the extraordinary possibilities that those who live with disabilities have. I also hope that those without disabilities– rather than putting a focus on our differences – will come to understand what we all have in common. This book is for my mom, with love.
