About Charlotte Holmes
Originally from the UK, I now live in Houston, Texas, with my husband, who grew up here. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in French and Hispanic Studies from the University of Birmingham in the UK, and a Master’s Degree in Spanish Literature from La Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain. I am passionate about many aspects of Hispanic culture, including Spanish cinema and TV shows, Latin dance and tres leches cake. Having spent over ten years as a teacher of languages, I am now pursuing another of my lifelong interests: translation. I am thrilled to be working on such an exciting and worthwhile project as Watching America.
