David is a talented architectural photographer, and is widely published. His photos appear in the Forestville/Local Retreats section of this web site. His professionalism is unparalleled, and he has been pivotal in helping me to promote my retreats with his beautiful photographs. Take a look.

A beautiful getaway in Point Reyes, right on Tomales Bay. Perfect for a solo writing retreat.

Started in 1999, this school offers classes in every genre: everything from children's literature to how to break into travel writing.
