Welcome to Hotly Spiced.  My name is Charlie Louie and I live with my husband and three children, Archie, Arabella and Alfie and two elderly ladies, Ruby and Rosie (dachshunds) in an increasingly untidy and dilapidated Sydney eyesore.

A few years ago I received a letter of rejection from a US publisher stating they would publish my fabulous and thought provoking manuscript if only I was famous.  ‘People are only buying books written by famous people’, they explained, ‘that’s what moves them off the shelves’.

So instead of lying awake at night pondering how to enter the world’s stage, I write my Hotly Spiced Blog.  I hope you love the recipes and enjoy the stories.

You can contact me and follow me through any of the following avenues:

I think that about covers it!  Looking forward to connecting with you,



Update…In April 2015 our beautiful Ruby passed away.  She was incredibly special and so I’d love you know a little about her.  You can read about her here and be sure to let me know if you’ve also had to say goodbye to someone equally as precious.
