Capt. Charlie Thorn

Charles Thorn joined the U.S. Army after high school and served in Germany during the Cold War. After separation he attended New York University and later transferred to the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern. Subsequently he spent many years at Newsweek and Forbes magazines in New York and Atlanta before relocating to Hilton Head Island where he divides his time between writing and tourism. He enjoys introducing visitors to the beauty of the Lowcountry waterways and sharing with them the rich history of enigmatic Daufuskie Island. The island inspired the setting for much of his novel, Children of Shadows. His second book is in the works and will be a sequel because of many readers’ enthusiastic response to the main characters.
