Photography is my other big passion in life, along with writing, and I’ve visited, and photographed, many of the locations I use in my novels. So while I’m working on the treatment for my next contemporary romance novel, I thought I would share my photos of some of the places we visited in my earlier books.

Portions of my novel, The Betrayal, take place in San Diego. In one scene two characters, Emily and Jesse, spend a romantic Christmas holiday at the Hotel del Coronado.

This historic hotel is a famous landmark with a reputation for being haunted. Kate Morgan, a young hotel guest in the 1890s, met an untimely end during her stay and her ghost is said to haunt hotel today. She’s even mentioned in The Betrayal. Then, in the mid-twentieth century, the hotel used as a location for Some Like it Hot, starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. Her ghost is also said to haunt the hotel.

By the way, I do my photography as Gayle Martin, and if you’d like to see more of my work please visit my website at GayleMartinPhotography.com.
