Charles Wilson and his wife, Linda, have three children, two boys, Destin and Charles, Jr., who are attorneys, and a daughter, Cassandra Heath, homemaker. He wrote ten mysteries and thrillers before retiring a few years ago, but has now started back writing, publishing his latest work, The Remora, as an E-book which can be found at Amazon.com and other E-book sites. He has also just finished a short story, "In The Beginning" which has not been yet sent off for publishing, but is being looked at by film agencies as a story to develop into a movie. His books are set for the most part in various places in Mississippi. For example, Nightwatcher, is a mystery set in central Mississippi and concerns a father's investigation of his daughter's murder in a hospital for the mentally-ill. Silent Witness, is also a mystery set in central Mississippi, and is the story of a woman trying to prove her husband is not a murderer. When First We Deceive, is a mystery about a serial killer on the loose, and takes place in Pass Christian, Mississippi. The Cassandra Prophecy is a mystery set in Biloxi, Mississippi, where a man tries to track down his brother's killer Mississippi. Fertile Ground, is a scientific thriller and takes place in Jackson, Mississippi, and deals with doctors who visit Brazil discover a virus that turns those infected into maddened killers. Direct Descendant is a scientific thriller and occurs in Memphis, Tennessee, and is a story about a scientist uses DNA from a prehistoric body to implant into the egg of a prostitute to prove his theory that ancient man was very little different from modern man, and brings back two killers in the form of a pair of blond-haired twins. Extinct, is about a Megalodon, the prehistoric ancestor of the Great White Shark, coming back to terrify Gulf Coast beaches. Embryo, is a story of children gestated outside the womb with disastrous results. Game Plan is a thriller and is the story of a military experiment where a brain-chip that gives its recipients extraordinary powers is implanted into the brains of prisoners who escape and start planning to take over the world, and is being looked at as a film. Donor is a scientific thriller that has to do with brain transplants from living humans. Deep sleep is a mystery centered around a killing at a psychological complex. In The Beginning is a short story that has to do with how super intelligent robots began their quest for world domination.
Wilson has received extraordinary praise on almost all of his works, including John Grisham calling Nightwatcher, "Splendid! A lean, tight, compelling story that was over much too fast", The Los Angeles Times twice calling him a "Wizard Plotter", and Ed Gorman, editor of Mystery Scene Magazine and book critic for Barnes & Noble, echoing that, saying, "Wilson might flat-out be the best plotter of our generation." In addition, Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus Reviews have given Wilson multiple top reviews, with Kirkus saying that Game Plan contains enough "..slaps on the cheeks to keep you awake half the night", and one of his other works, "...rushes over you like a jolt of adrenalin" Wilson can be contacted through his Literary Agent, Natasha Kern at natashakern.com
