TEMECULA – Temecula-based author and content specialist Herb Torrens has a new book, Dance of the Blue Chameleon, which is now available at selected book stores and online through Trafford.com, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Dance of the Blue Chameleon is a work of fiction set in the northern regions of San Diego County and southern regions of Riverside County in the mid 1980s. The story revolves around a group of friends and acquaintances drawn together by an event that takes on new shapes and dimensions as it unfolds. From a simple traffic accident to a political scandal, its characters evolve with the moments and the times. It’s a story of everyday characters in an ever-changing landscape.
“This is a fictional story; however, many of the streets, highways, towns and areas mentioned are or were real, or as real as I can remember them from the time,” said Torrens. “Some are close to being accurate; some are purely the result of my imagination. My intention with this book was to capture a special place in time with a story and characters that were representative of that time.”
Dance of the Blue Chameleon is Torrens’ second book and first work of fiction. The distinctive cover for the book was done by local artist and designer Fred Lamb, of Fred Lamb Designs.
