Son Charles will be the one appearing at this event; as they write seamlessly, they often do events separately. Charles Todd is the New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge mysteries, the Bess Crawford mysteries, and two stand-alone novels. Charles has a BA in Communication Studies and learned the rich history of Britain, including the legends of King Arthur, William Wallace, and other heroes, as a child. Many trips to England gave him the opportunity to spend time in villages and the countryside, where there’s different viewpoint from that of the large cities. Travels with his mother are at the heart of the series they began ten years ago. Charles’s love of history led him to a study of some of the wars that shape it: the American Civil War, WWI and WWII. He enjoys all things nautical, has an international collection of seashells, and has sailed most of his life. Charles had a career as a business consultant, and this experience gave him an understanding of going to troubled places where no one was glad to see him arrive. This was excellent training for Rutledge’s reception as he tries to find a killer in spite of local resistance.
