Charles and Caroline Todd are a mother-and-son writing team who live on the east coast of the United States. Charles and Caroline have a rich storytelling heritage. Both spent many evenings on the porch listening to their fathers and grandfathers reminisce. And a maternal grandmother told marvelous ghost stories. This tradition allows them to write with passion about events before their own time. And an uncle/great-uncle who served as a flyer in WWI aroused an early interest in the Great War.

Charles learned the rich history of Britain, including the legends of King Arthur, William Wallace, and other heroes, as a child. Books on Nelson and by Winston Churchill were always at hand. Their many trips to England gave them the opportunity to spend time in villages and the countryside, where thereā€™a different viewpoint from that of the large cities. Their travels are at the heart of the series they began ten years ago.

I spoke with them about their latest Ian Rutledge novel, “A Fine Summer’s Day.”
