Sierra Mountain Village is loosely–and I stress loosely–modeled on Pine Mountain Club in Kern County Central California. I love my life here and would like to share it with you.
Payback is the first novel in the Dex Stafford/Holly Seabright series, The Most Dangerous, the second. I’m at work on the third.
Snow on the twisty mountain roads. Imagine Holly directing traffic at this pile up.
We live in what is called a high desert climate and the only big lake around is Pyramid Lake, which is a man-made reservoir and part of the California Water Project. What you see below is just a sag pond, created by a long ago earthquake. They used to drive cattle up from the San Joaquin Valley in the summers for the water here.
This pond exists as a water resource in case of fires. It’s also fun as a catch and release fishing pond.
