I spent three more spectacular days in Astoria, Oregon on a fact-finding mission for my Get Eaven suspense series. Street 14 Cafe not only provided a great cup of Stumptown coffee but also a variety of savory quiches for breakfast, two days in a row. For a couple of hours each day, I sat in comfort and finished some chapters while the details were fresh in my mind.

Outside the walls of windows, Astoria bustled. My eyes feasted on this town I have come to enjoy immensely. Like my character, Eaven Alexander, I’m saddened whenever I leave it. I bought this cup and drink from it most mornings to anchor myself within the story. I hope my novel will whet your appetite to visit this amazing city. If you do, let me know. And send some pics.
