Photography, like writing, is one of my life’s passions. I’ve visited, and photographed, many of the locations I use in my contemporary romance novels. So while I’m working on the treatment for my next book, I thought I would share my photos of some of the places we visited in my earlier novels.

Portions of my contemporary romance novel, The Betrayal, take place in San Diego, when Emily and Jesse, spend a romantic Christmas holiday at the Hotel del Coronado.

The famous landmark dates back to the late nineteenth century with it’s Queen Anne revival architecture.  The hotel also has a reputation for being haunted. Kate Morgan, a young hotel guest in the 1890s, met an untimely end during her stay at the Hotel del Coronado, and her ghost is said to haunt hotel today. She’s even mentioned in The Betrayal. In the mid-twentieth century, the hotel was a location for Some Like it Hot, starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn’s ghost is also said to haunt the hotel.

Now, in case you’re wondering, I do my photography as Gayle Martin. If you would like to see more of my work please visit my website at GayleMartinPhotography.com.
