One of My Favorite Places in California by Marilyn Meredith

This is a great shot of Morro Rock in Morro Bay. I've visited this area many times and always find something new to enjoy and love. Besides all the beautiful vistas, there are some great restaurants with fabulous seafood.

Here's a photo taken through the window of one of the restaurants.

Because I love the area so much I decided to write a Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery set in my favorite beach town. Most of the Crabtree mysteries are set in the mountains, much like where I live.
When her son who lives in Morro Bay plans his wedding there, of course Tempe and her husband, Hutch join in the festivities.

The tale spills over into the nearby towns including San Luis Obispo.

There is much Indian lore in the area--and of course much of it centers around the mystery itself.

Do any of the rest of you write about places that are special to your heart?



  1. I am familiar with Morro Rock because of the Benni Harper series. Some of the books, one in particular, takes place in Morro Bay. How can you miss that rock (for lack of a better word) jutting out of the water. I will be interested in checking out your book! BTW, my Jeweltown series takes place in Royal Oak, Michigan, which is a small suburb of Detroit, with its own downtown. A lot of interest in the book has been more local than I anticipated.

  2. Thanks, Denise, I'll have to take a peek at your series--I love these ongoing tales.

  3. You have inspired me to write about my time spent writing at Dillon Beach, Ca.
