About the artist:

Belinda Jones is a former magazine journalist turned bestselling author of 12 romantic-comedy novels (2 of which feature Coronado!) and 2 non-fiction US road trip memoirs.

(The first road trip memoir had a Thelma & Louise theme and made the Sunday Times Top 10 list alongside her writing hero Bill Bryson. The second was more Turner & Hooch and featured her beloved dog - and canine-around-Coronado - Bodie. Bodie on the Road - Travels with My Rescue Pup in the Dogged Pursuit of Happiness - out now with Skyhorse Publishing in the US.)

Belinda has sold over half a million copies worldwide with translations into German, Russian, Czech, Bulgarian and Thai!

Each of Belinda's smile-inducing stories features a heroine transformed by her adventures in a new country and her books can double as a travel guide to their featured destinations, be it Tahiti, Costa Rica or Capri!

THE CALIFORNIA CLUB begins and ends on Coronado. It seems apt that the book's theme is: What's your dream? because for Belinda the dream was always to live here on Coronado! (And it's even more lovely than she had hoped!)

Her latest romantic comedy novel is THE HOTEL WHERE WE MET (out June 2019). It is set at the Hotel Del Coronado and includes time travel to 1888, 1929, 1958 and 1985! (There's even a cameo from Jack Lemmon's son Chris!)
