Yes, I can host your event ONLINE! Ask me how!”
Fun, charming and a little zany - Charlotte is a mistress of silly characters! She has been hosting murders and time travel parties since 2001, both as a freelance host and for companies such as Applause Entertainment, Bare Elements Productions, Murder in a Box, Ovations Edu-tainment, Qismat and Murder by Design. Charlotte is a warm and engaging host who loves a party, especially if there's a good mystery involved - keep up with her if you can!   

Charlotte and her husband, Douglas Bair, offer four exclusive murder mystery themes, written and produced in-house: A Fairytale FiascoDeath at the Diner (1950's), Murder on the Dance Floor (1970's Disco) and Pandemonium at the Prom (1980's).
