Where I Live
Mel King is a graduate of Bates College and Harvard Law School. After 5 years as a professor at a California law school, and over 45 years as a successful trial attorney, he retired and moved with his wife, Shirley, to the central coast of California, with its magnificent scenery, abundant wildlife [deer, seals, sea otters, pelicans, bobcats—and even mountain lions]. At the urging of his wife to take up an avocation or hobby, he turned to writing stories. Realizing that many high school and college graduates lack the knowledge of history, he began writing about that genre.
