This is a photo of the original ” Project Migraine Team ” from R to L  Chris, Project Coordinator, Co Author and Co Investigator, Center me, Principal,Co Author, Co Investigator and L is Mike, Project Publicist. This was taken on board a boat moored in Sacramento, CA. Earthquake One named after the January 26th 1980 Livermore CA 5.8 quake.


I realize that most people do not include an Acknowledgement Page in a blog, but I  can’t launch this blog without thanking some very special people in my life who helped make it possible by their testing and believing in my theories and or by their years of friendship.

First and foremost I need to say thank you to Dr. Christopher H. Dodge, a Biologist. Chris believed in me and together the 3 of us, Chris, Mike and I, sitting in a kitchen in Sacramento, launched ” Project Migraine”  This was a project to prospectively predict earthquakes and or volcanic eruptions prospective of their happening.  Chris was instrumental in arranging for much of my testing with the US Government.  I worked with him on the project from March 1981 till his death in the late 1990’s.  He opened a lot of doors that would have been closed to me.  I really miss his laugh and his council. I am the only person from the original Project Migraine team  who is still active in earthquake research.

To my family who believed in me and gave me courage when mine was lacking.

I want to thank my husband who has been supporting me no matter what was happening related to quakes, volcanoes or solar activity for over 30 years. He urged me to stand up and fight for what I know to be true.

Especially I want to acknowledge my mom and dad  who would be so happy that I am launching this blog. Dad was with me from the beginning to share my thoughts and theories, mom helped me to believe in myself and was always there to cheer me on and smile through the pain and tears when I was ready to give up.
I also want to thank my kids who put up with a lot during those early days before St Helens major eruption with mom being sick much of the time before we realized it was the mountain making me so ill your love kept me going.

I will also list several others who have helped me more than they may know who started 0ut as strangers and became friends. There are far too many persons to thank here, so I am limiting this to persons who have influenced my work, cheered me on and gave me their support since the beginning of what was later coined ” The Charlotte King Effect “.

Alfred L. Webre:  He and I connected by telephone in 1987 and he asked me to speak on VOA * Voice Of America * for the Harmonic Convergence, August 16-17th.  I did and I can’t say what others may or may not have noticed but that day of ” global meditation ” did change my life in ways I had not dreamed. Thank you for your faith in my words. Your donation funded my first one page flyer which through the years grew into my first 15 page pamphlet and has now evolved into a full 36 pages and is and will always be a ” Work in progress “.

Helen H: She has been there for me since the beginning I can never repay your kindness.

Devon B: Another sensitive I met through Project Migraine and has become a close friend.

Penny O: A sensitive who I made contact with after the Northridge CA quake who keeps me on my toes, who shared a stage with me on a national televised program.  Thank you for all you have done and for your friendship.

Lauri M:  A friend who has on occasion sent out an update for me when I was either not close to a computer or was too ill to do it myself.  Your friendship is treasured.

Michael B: A reporter, award winning broadcaster, and former State of California OES Warning Center employee who opened doors for me in Sacramento, CA earthquake connections and media like Chris opened them for me in testing and research. Mike was the original publicist for Project Migraine when we launched in Sacramento CA.

Sten L: He was the first scientist who showed a true interest in what I was doing and became a friend

Susan B: She has spent many hours on the phone with me before the Landers quake confirming my prediction for that quake time, magnitude and location. She was one of the first who urged me to continue my work in this field.

Karen C:  She placed calls for me relaying messages to Caltech and the media of impending quakes in both Landers and Northridge CA. You made a difference.

Last but not least…

Linda C: Caltech staff person who took my forecasts seriously and passed the information on to others thank you for all you did for me and thank you for your friendship.
