His love and family life.. How he became a writer.. How he became a writer.. How he became a writer.. How he became a writer He started to write Pickwick papers and it did really well. 40,000 thousand copies a month which was incredibly good.
He was then invited to America on a lecture tour. People crowded his hotel lobby and the outside streets hoping to see him.
He then started writing novels soon there after. One of his first books was Oliver Twist. His Very first love was Maria, but she left him because her father said she could marry richer.
After he got over her, he met Catherine Hogarth, who he then married and she became pregnant.
They had 10 Children They all moved to London because of how well his paper was doing and Cathrine's sister Gorgina even moved in with them to help take care of all the kids.

Charles opened up his mail and got a letter from Maria! (the one who left him) and she wanted to come visit, but Charles said no. Charles Dickens thought that their marriage was a absolute disaster, but he stayed with her for a little bit longer because of the kids.
He was Also worried that if he did stay married, that his creativeness would go to waste. He was hiring people for a play and he then met Ellen Ternan, a 19 year old actress and he fell in love with her after getting to know her. And he was 45, by the way.
He got a divorce from Cathrine, and the kids were left with her sister.
Later in life, Charles found out that Ellen said she hated the old mans touch.. Poor Charles! One early morning on June 8th, 1870, he had a stroke while finishing a half-way point in a book.
He never regained consciousness at the hospital, and the next day, June 9th, passed away at Gads Hill Place. He was buried in Abbey, Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley graveyard
A lot of people/ fans of his work were crushed by his death. People and Publishers say that he was pushed by demons and that the demons are what made him who he was and what made him such a good writer.
People also say that he was a unhappy man, and if he was happy, he could have been one of the greatest writers in the world.
Even after his death, there were many that followed Dickens writing style and he still lives on as one of the most respected authors of all time. He first wanted to become an actor and roamed the streets at night looking for theaters, this did not work out to well for him.

Birthday at a Dramatic Public Reading) Because he was doing so good with Pickwick Papers, he bought the little red house that he always wanted, but it didn't satisfy him. So he threw himself into editing magazines and books

He thought that writing drained his energy, so he had public readings which made him a lot of money.
