PERRY SQUARE, Erie, Pennsylvania

I've done a series of "Perry Square" books for Silhouette Romance. It started with Do You Hear What I Hear? followed by A Day Late and a Bride Short, Dad Today, Groom Tomorrow, and finally, Be My Baby. Then came the Perry Square's Royalty Trilogy Once Upon a Princess, Once Upon a Prince and finally, Once Upon a King. The Perry Square series concluded with Here With Me. The Perry Square Series has been published in more than 20 countries.


Perry Square is a real two block park in Erie, Pa. It's named after Oliver Hazard Perry, made famous during the Battle of Lake Erie. There's a statue of him in the park.



Here is just a beautiful autumn shot of the park.




The real Perry Square is surrounded by businesses. In my Perry Square book I've added fictional businesses such as Snips and Snaps Beauty Salon, By Design, The Chocolate Bar, a law firm and a eye doctor's office. This isn't any reflection on the very lovely stores that really make up the square. If you're ever in Erie, I hope you stop by and visit them. In the meantime, I hope you'll read about my fictional ones! <g>

If you go a few blocks down from Perry Square, you'll reach our bayfront, Dobbin's Landing. In my books I take you there a lot. Characters go visit the tower. And they've even taken dinner cruises.

A view up State Street from the tower. Perry Square is about five blocks straight ahead!







Finally, see the little stack in the background? That's our Maritime Museum and the Blasco Library!





These three beach shots were taken August '03. That's me...and the sunsets. Truly, the sunsets are Erie at its best!


Once Upon a Prince spend a lot of time on the Bayfront. Shey and Tanner go to the Blasco library (2, 3), which is next to the Maritime Museum (1) and the Brig Niagra (4).















Finally, Shey and Tanner head off to Liberty Park's Pepsi Ampitheater and watch a Jimmy Buffet tribute band. 





Notice the great views!!





I write a lot about the beauty of Erie. I hope, through my books, you learn to love my favorite city as much as I do! ~Holly
