James D. Houston's latest book Where Light Takes Its Color From The Sea is filled with stories and essays about his native California, and particularly Santa Cruz. He lives there with his family in a roomy Victorian house with a water view. Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club also lives in Santa Cruz, and has set her new novel Wit's End in a house very much based on Houston's home.
