There are two settings for my novel Passing Through Brandiss which comes out on May 20th. Nine days away, but who’s counting, right? In the beginning of the book, Annie and her husband live in Sausalito, California. The rest of the book is set in the fictional town of Brandiss, California, located near Santa Barbara. I lived in Sausalito when I was younger and resided in Santa Barbara for eight years while getting my B.A. in Spanish then I worked there for several years afterward on the U.C. campus.
I love both Sausalito and Santa Barbara for their small-town atmosphere and beauty.
Do you have a town or city in California that you love to visit and, if so, why?
