A House to Fall In Love With

MM with Lawn-230

The Morey Mansion in Redlands, California, was my inspiration for Rosswood House, the ancestral home of time traveler Katherine Rostnova in my romantic fiction trilogy, Moonseed.

The Morey Mansion

Dubbed the "Orange Empire House" and "America's Favorite Victorian," the enchanting Morey Mansion itself has a romantic history. A shipbuilder named David Morey dreamed one night of a woman walking toward him in a pink dress. The very next day a young woman named Sarah walked toward him, wearing—you guessed it!—a pink dress.

Laura Christianson126x188

This beautiful website you are visiting is the product of my collaboration with Laura Christianson and her gifted team at Blogging Bistro, a Seattle-based company that specializes in helping non-techie types like me develop social media strategies, brands, blogs, and websites.
