No, I'm not getting involved in some weird Mom version of a gang war. I've started a new book, and I'm trying to work out exactly where it happens.
Allow me to 'splain. This is a haunted house story, sort of. What I really want is a place with cliffs -- or at least bluffs -- on the coast, and where the Italianate influence with the cuppola and widow's walk is strong in the architecture. I know there are parts of the East coast where they have the cupploa and widow's walk on a lot of the houses, but I'm not sure if the coastline is the sort I'm looking for. Right now I'm kind of thinking maybe the Maine coastline somewhere, but I'm not sure. What do y'all think? Does anyone know if Maine has cliffs/bluffs on the coastline? What about the cuppola and widow's walk? If not Maine, then what about somewhere along the West coast? What about Oregon? How likely are you to find an old house with a cuppola and widow's walk on top of a cliff/bluff along the Oregon coast?
I could Google (and I expect I will, LOL) but nothing beats first hand knowledge, and I figure some of y'all might have that, so here I am asking :) Help a girl out? Pretty please? Many thanks in advance!
