“inspiring hope, one story at a time”

Charlotte Grey is pseudonym for a nonfiction recovery writer based in the United States. Her expanding portfolio of published material explores a breadth of solutions she has used to support her recovery from drug addition and heal clinically diagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder. Having worked several 12-Step programs, had over a decade of therapy, and having survived a rampantly abusive childhood until getting sober at age 20, Charlotte’s had a lot of broken parts to fix.

Anonymity is crucial so that Charlotte can speak as honestly and candidly as these topics require.

“I focus my writing on issues treated as taboo, especially in sobriety. I’ve noticed these things are rarely talked about and how many people identify when I share my experiences. Anyone struggling needs to hear that they’re not alone, they’re not doing something wrong just because they’re going through it, and that there’s a solution.

“My published articles discuss my personal stories in depth, while my blog and Instagram explore applying therapeutic solutions to everyday problems. I hope my material can help guide you to the emotional and psychological freedom I’ve worked hard to experience.”
