Born in New York City on 8 November 1960, Charles A. Coulombe moved with his parents to Hollywood, California at age 6. A product of L.A.'s parochial schools, he attended college at New Mexico Military Institute and California State University Northridge, majoring in Political Science.
After spending three years as a stand-up comic on the Sunset Strip, Mr. Coulombe authored his first book, Everyman Today Call Rome, a look at the Catholic Church in America from an under-30 viewpoint. Coulombe's work has appeared in over a score of journals, including regular columns in Fidelity of Australia, PRAG of London, Monarchy Canada, and Creole of Louisiana; a contributing editor and regular movie reviewer to The National Catholic Register, he is also a frequent contributor to such publications as Success, Catholic Twin Circle, Gnosis, FATE and New Oxford Review.
