I never consciously chose to set all my stories in California, but after a decade or so of writing I stepped back and realized that everything I write takes place here.
As I’ve researched my stories, I’ve come across countless little facts about my home state that surprised me. Like the fact that hot tubs were invented here. As was Irish Coffee. Who knew?
But 99% of these interesting little facts have no place in my fiction. I stashed them away for years until it occurred to me that I could share them here on my blog. So that’s what I’m doing.
Check back here every Friday for a dose of California trivia (or sign up for my newsletter and get all my posts in a weekly digest). I hope you find it all as entertaining as do.
