About the artist:

Belinda Jones is a former magazine journalist turned bestselling author of 11 romantic-comedy novels and one non-fiction US road trip memoir which made the Sunday Times Top 10 list alongside her writing hero Bill Bryson.

She 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!

Her third novel - The California Club - begins and ends on Coronado, featuring the legendary Hotel Del. 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!)

LATEST NEWS: After trying to nab a US book publisher for the past 16 years, Belinda has finally triumphed with a deal with Berkley (imprint of Penguin USA). The Travelling Tea Shop - a cake-themed trip around New England in a bright red London bus! - is out March 5th 2015! (You can see the cover below!)

Belinda is currently working on a dog-themed road trip memoir called Bodie on the Road - The Dogged Pursuit of Happiness.
