How volunteering at Dodger Stadium during COVID-19 influenced author’s book on Los Angeles

One might assume that Rosecrans Baldwin, author of “Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and “The Last Kid Left,” is L.A. born-and-raised, given that he shares his first name with the street that runs from Manhattan Beach to Fullerton.

‘The Photographer’ author Mary Dixie Carter, a child of Hollywood, explores dark desires in novel

For Mary Dixie Carter, the inspiration for her debut novel “The Photographer” came from a casual comment made by someone she’d hired to take pictures of her children a few years back. “She’s a very talented photographer, and the pictures were beautiful,” Carter says. “But when they came back, the children’s eyes were vivid, cobalt blue. “I said, ‘I’d like for my children’s eyes to be their real color,’” she says. “And she said, ‘There is no real color.’” Mary Dixie Carter’s debut novel “The ...
