The hunt for literary ghosts has compelled me to travel to many novel-worthy sites. This blog is about those adventures. I dive into the inspiration behind writers from Austen and Keats to Steinbeck and Twain.
I started this blog in 2010, after completing a Master of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from St. Mary's College of California. My thesis focused on my life-long passion for literary history. Specifically I wrote about the legacies of California writers John Steinbeck, John Muir, Eugene O'Neill and Robert Louis Stevenson. It was a project that changed my life.
