    I was born in New York just after WWII when, because of the Depression and the war, the city seemed very little changed from the 1920s. I spent a lot of time listening to my grandparents, hearing what the area was like from when they were born in the 1880s, so it was like living in multiple time periods. I grew up in the suburbs, spent the next 20 years freelancing a design career in the Midwest and Northeast then followed that career to Los Angeles.

    This introduces Jake, the narrator of Moorpark Palms, a funny book of stories about a small Los Angeles apartment building in the 1990s.  Jake & Conor is a light little romance, once intertwined with the longer book.  I broke it out because it distracted from the apartment stories.

     

    As usual, I'll be posting three times a week -- Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
