Why did I write Historical Gems of the San Francisco Bay Area?
This is a keynote address at the annual conference of the California Council for the Promotion of History given in Monterey, California on October 4, 2015. In the talk, I explain how and why I wrote Historical Gems of the San Francisco Bay Area to a group of professional historians. You will learn many insights into how I work as a writer and why the book is so useful.
