Our first Arrowhead Cabin, also Noah's cabin in the Guest Book Trilogy series

Our second Lake Arrowhead House where I did a lot of writing

This is our home in Long Beach where I actually wrote my books.

My ideas and inspiration came from the mountains but I wanted to show you where I actually wrote most of my books. My office is off the Dining Room in our home in  Long Beach. My office faced our backyard where I could look out at our fountain. Quite inspiring since my main character for my first three books is an Interior Designer (mirrors life right?) I've always felt everyone deserves a beautiful home, even on a small budget. I love to talk to people about decorating, and have always wondered what other writer's homes looked like.

Our New Home in Coto de Caza

We combined our Long Beach Traditional home with our Lake Arrowhead "lodge" home and we love it!
