I am the author of two books on B&Bs.; I spend a great deal of my time researching and writing about California B&Bs; as well as talking about them to inngoers, innkeepers and the traveling public. I have also been a B&B; owner and have worked as the promotional coordinator for tourism in my Central Coast community.
