Stuart Thornton first fell in love with the California coast when he got a job at the Big Sur Ranger Station. At work, he provided visitors with all sorts of information about the region, from the best places to camp to the best meals in the area. On his days off, he took his own advice and regularly sought out the best local spots for hiking, backpacking, surfing, and snorkeling.
Stuart later moved to nearby Monterey to become a staff writer for the Monterey County Weekly, and he now works as a freelance writer for a range of publications from National Geographic Education to Relix Magazine.
While working on this book, Stuart traveled the length and breadth of the coastline. He paddled through the glowing green sea caves of the Channel Islands, took in the wealth of artwork at Los Angeles’ Getty Center, kayaked Elkhorn Slough in Monterey Bay, and finally surfed the renowned surf break Trestles near San Clemente.
When not searching for the next great secluded beach, uncrowded wave, or quirky coastal attraction, Stuart lives in Marina, California.
