"The great Julia Morgan is being rediscovered,"
Next on Purl's busy autumn agenda is the Milford-Haven Tour. Ever wanted to know the real places that inspired the fictional ones in her best-selling books? Her readers are clamoring to know.
The focus of Purl's multiple award-winning series is the life and times of people who inhabit her fictional town. She'll lead friends and followers to two lighthouses, a glass-bottom boat tour, a hike at the mysterious "Cove," a stroll through Cambria's famous Scarecrow Festival, and conclude with a wine tasting overlooking the ocean. Locations will stretch from Avila Beach and Point San Luis, through Morro Bay, Cambria, and San Simeon.
"I can hardly wait to share 'behind the scenes' stories," Purl enthused. "There's so much history! There's my original radio drama that launched in Cambria and became the first American radio serial broadcast on the BBC where it reached 4.5 million listeners. And now there are 10 books in my series of novels and novellas." The books have won more than 60 book awards and attracted a loyal following across the country.
Third on her list of major events is the Central Coast Writers Conference. One of the premier author events in California, the conference attracts some of the top speakers and attendees in the field.
This year it promises to be a truly cutting edge event, starting with its opening session. The topic? Artificial Intelligence, with presenters touting its benefits on the one hand, and offering warnings about its dangers on the other. Conference director Brian Schwartz chose Purl as the moderator to start off the day with a bang.
"I've been studying non-stop ever since I received the invitation,"
