Events around my Palo Alto High School reunion inspired me to write MY INVENTED LIFE.

C. Lee McKenzie’s debut novel, SLIDING ON THE EDGE, was inspired by a news report of self-abuse in troubled teens.

Cheryl Renee Herbsman, a San Rafael mom of two, set her novel, BREATHING, about young love, in the South where she grew up.

Malinda Lo, author of ASH, a lesbian retelling of Cinderella, lives in Marin with her partner.
