About Author/Artist/Chef Deamer Dunn
Deamer was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He lived in Switzerland and the Washington D.C. area before settling in Monterey County California in the early 1980's. He currently resides in the birth city of John Steinbeck, Salinas California, the former home of his dinner only restaurant, Pajaro Street Grill. Deamer now spends much of his time in Tijuana Mexico and traveling the world with his recurring character, Omar T Black. I have a list of some thirty more locations I hope to write Omar adventures- come join the journey!
Everyday is a great day to read a book or color one!!!
About Chef Omar:
Chef Omar is the son of a Monterey California restaurateur/investor, who is happy to be a front man for his family’s interests, since they usually involve discovery, interesting people and adventure. His good looks, international diversity, easy going personality and intense curiosity, is often attractive to woman of strength, insight and beauty. His most common side-kick, his sister Kristin, is bi-sexual and bold, adding additional diversity to these multi-cultural tales. I title these stories as “mystery lite,” because instead of being dependent on crime and violence, their mystery backbone is based on something linked to a regions real history—they are culturally enlightening, but mostly, like the lead character, they are just fun. These aspects, along with the use of mostly actual locations and the contemporary set, make these books travel fiction at its best. They include maps, sketches, local anecdotes, reading recommendations and recipes.

"TRAVEL FICTION brings a locations culture and nature to light in a manner much richer than reading the facts and figures of travel books. Before and during my visiting special places in the world, I dig into a location's travel fiction. I allow it to fill all my senses as I explore and illuminate these places in my Omar adventures. This site shares some of the adventure. ENJOY!" Deamer
