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
South Carolina, A Day at a Time is their first book.
