Charles Thorn


Charles Thorn joined the U.S. Army after high school and served in Germany with the Army Security Agency. After separation he attended New York University and later transferred to 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. He now divides his time between writing and conducting tours of historic Daufuskie Island, SC.

It was there that he stumbled upon the difficult issue of “heirs’ property” that became the basis for the plot of “Children of Shadows”. His second book is in the works, and because of many readers’ enthusiastic response to the main characters in the first it will be a sequel. He can be contacted at
