"I enjoy researching those colorful men and women in California who have often been by-passed by historians. With a  background in architecture and historic preservation, I have also been intrigued by the dozens of magnificent  small  historic  hotels of the Mother Lode along Highway 49 from Oakhurst to Placerville.  From biography to architecture to Spanish California, the subject-matter that interest me always stems from the colorful and fascinating history of the Golden State."
