    Hi Martin,

    I love this map and all the links to the various places on it.

    Screenwriter Jane Hall lived at the Garden of Allah at least three times while she worked at MGM, Universal and RKO. The first time, in the winter of 1938, Jane was in Room 108 in the main building; she wrote that Beatrice Lillie had stayed in the same room. In June 1939 she and Kate (the dog she rescued in Hollywood) had a villa–much nicer! She and her new husband had one in the fall of 1940, and again between September 1941 and April 1942.

    Thanks so much for all the effort you and Dave put into this. I would like to feature some of your info in my post later this month.

    Will send you a note via email….

    Best, Robin

    I was wondering if there is a diagram somewhere that shows the Garden and where all the characters from your books lived ? You know, which villas and what time period. The fictional along with the non-fictional. I’m currently on my 4th reading of your series. And I can’t wait until the next one comes out. There is a next one right ? Your characters have become family and it will be a harsh day when it comes time to say farewell to them after the last book.

    Thanks for creating such a wonderful place for me to go when I needed to escape reality for awhile.

    • Hey Nancy – thanks for stopping by! If there was enough reliable information about who stayed in which villa during which period, I MOST CERTAINLY WOULD create a diagram showing all that. But actual villa numbers are few and far between, let alone reliable ones, so it just doesn’t seem to have been worth it.

      Seriously?? You’ve read my books 4 times?? I’m VERY impressed! And flattered! You’ll be pleased to know that there will be a 5th book in the series – I’m currently writing chapter 10 – and then I have 4 more books planned after that, taking us through to the Garden of Allah’s closing night party in August 1959. So there’s lots more where that came from!
