Charles Todd
Murder By The Book, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 6:30pm
Charles Todd will sign and discuss A Fine Summer's Day (William Morrow; $26.99), the newest book in the Ian Rutledge series.

Charles and Caroline Todd are a mother and son writing team who live on the east coast of the United States. Caroline has a BA in English Literature and History, and a Masters in International Relations. Charles has a BA in Communication Studies with an emphasis on Business Management, and a culinary arts degree that means he can boil more than water. Caroline has been married (to the same man) for umpteen years, and Charles is divorced.

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.

Caroline has always been a great reader and enjoyed reading aloud, especially poetry that told a story. The Highwayman was one of her early favorites. Her wars are World War 1, the Boer War, and the English Civil War, with a sneaking appreciation of the Wars of the Roses as well. When she’s not writing, she’s traveling the world, gardening or painting in oils. Her background in international affairs backs up her interest in world events, and she’s also a sports fan, an enthusiastic follower of her favorite teams in baseball and pro football. She loves the sea but is a poor sailor—Charles inherited his iron stomach from his father. Still, she has never met a beach she didn’t like.

Miles Arceneaux - RANSOM ISLAND
Brazos Bookstore, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 7pm
It's 1953 and life is good at Shady's, the Sweetwater brothers' fish camp, dancehall, and beer joint on Ransom Island.

The biggest event in the island's history is coming up--an integrated dance featuring Duke Ellington. It's a daring idea for fifties-era Texas, and not everyone is happy about it. But soon interracial dancing becomes the least of the Sweetwaters' problems. Galveston mobsters track a runaway girl to Shady's and decide the offbeat island is the perfect place to diversify their illegal rackets . . . And God help anyone who gets in their way.

Suddenly, life on sleepy little Ransom Island becomes crowded, complicated--and very, very dangerous.
