PG Forte was born on the wrong coast; a mistake she corrected as soon as she was able. And one she avoided making with her children, both of whom were born in Santa Monica, California within sight (on a clear day, and at a height of several stories) of the Pacific Ocean. She has spent most of the last seventeen years living in various locations throughout The Golden State—North, South and even, as King Arthur might have phrased it ‘for one brief shining moment’ in that Camelot of California, The Central Coast. The idea for the series came to her, appropriately enough, while she was enjoying a latte at an outdoor café in the company of friends. In many ways, Oberon is a celebration of everything weird, wacky and wonderful about her adopted home state. Besides books on Oberon, Ms. Forte has also written several documentary film scripts, and a children’s book on safety.
The Spirit of the Placeby P.G. Forte
‘Tis the season to be jolly, but Jasmine Quinn is far from happy about her mother’s latest folly: her upcoming wedding to former Wall Street financier, Sam Sterling. Jasmine doesn’t like her future step-father, or his values. Anybody with as much money as Sam, should be spreading it around, aiding worthy causes, making it count for something.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, but Jasmine Quinn is far from happy about her mother’s latest folly: her upcoming wedding to former Wall Street financier, Sam Sterling. Jasmine doesn’t like her future step-father, or his values. Anybody with as much money as Sam, should be spreading it around, aiding worthy causes, making it count for something. Instead, he seems intent on using his wealth to embarrass her mother by throwing a ridiculously lavish wedding. In fact, there’s only one thing about Sam that Jasmine can’t help but admire, no matter how much she’d like to––the graduate student he’s hired as an intern.
Brandon Ablemarle is also finding it hard to get into the holiday spirit. Especially since his dream job has just become a nightmare, thanks in part to the fiery redhead with some of the goofiest ideas he’s ever heard of. But what else can you expect from the daughter of a self-proclaimed psychic? Marsha Quinn has a lot to answer for. Not only has she encouraged her daughter’s esoteric craziness, she’s also turned one of the most brilliant stock analysts Wall Street had ever seen into a nutcase as well. One who actually appears to believe that the answers to the stock market can be found in the stars!
It’s a clash of ideologies when Jasmine and Brandon get together. Can the spirit of the season, and the spirit of the place, help them to see beyond their differences?
