About the authors:

Caroline Whitmire Todd and Sidney Smith Wait grew up in South Carolina, Ms. Todd in Columbia and Ms. Wait in Beaufort.  As sorority sisters at the University of South Carolina, they became friends; but after school, they married and went their separate ways. In 1988, both having returned to Columbia, they renewed their friendship and decided to write a book. Caroline Todd is mother of six and grandmother of six. She and her family have lived in a number of U. S. states-and in Japan-but her heart has remained true to South Carolina. In her job with the South Carolina Protection and Advocacy System, Ms. Todd spends a lot of time traveling around the Midlands. She confesses to using interstate highways to travel to meetings, but she always tries to come home by the back roads. Growing up on the sea islands of Beaufort County, Sidney Wait gained an early appreciation for the fascinating people and geographic grandeur of South Carolina. She has enjoyed a successful professional career that has included painting, sculpture, teaching, and the providing of services to special needs children. Ms. Wait raised three children of her own and assisted in the rearing of more than twenty foster children. She has visited many other countries and traveled extensively throughout the United States-always choosing the "long way" and the lesser traveled roads. Each return home to South Carolina has been accompanied by a renewed respect for her home state's diversity, history, and beauty.
            South Carolina, A Day at a Time is their first book.
