We're gonna kick it off big here, with Setting. Moonglass is set in Crystal Cove, CA, which is a REAL PLACE! It's actually a State Park, and if you haven't come for a visit yet, you must. It's a place
made of magic. Really. There is something so poignantly beautiful about Crystal Cove that I can’t define it in any other way. I grew up in the mountains, but I love this place like I’ve been here my whole life. Being here is like falling through a crack in history and going back in time to a place that captures the beauty of simplicity. From the crash of waves over the rocks to the tumbling-down cottages and serene sunsets, this place inspired MOONGLASS in every sense of the word.
See for yourself!

The cottage that inspired Anna's mother's house. It's actually the one they used in the movie Beaches.
