CHARLTON — It took Martha Bourke just four months to fulfill one of her lifelong ambitions.

"I always thought I would write a novel," said the local author, who recently published her first book, a young adult novel that she cranked out while snowed in to her writer's studio in her Charlton home last winter. The book takes readers on a journey to the end of the world — or at least the end of the Mayan calendar — Dec. 21, 2012, and is the first in a series that Bourke expects to stretch into three to five books.
