G.M. Weger lives near East Garrison in the town of Salinas, California. She works as an editor/writer for the Department of Defense on former Army base Fort Ord. The inspiration for "East Garrison" came in part from her background around military antiques. Soon after she began working at Fort Ord, she found herself exploring the closed fort on her lunch hour, and felt haunted by spirits of all the soldiers who passed through on their way to four different wars. And then she wrote the award-winning book.
