Eric Peterson’s most recent novel, The Dining Car, won the IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Gold Award for Popular Fiction, the San Diego Book Award Gold Medal for Contemporary Fiction, and the Readers’ Favorite Book Award Silver Medal for Literary Fiction.

In the novel, a former college football star embarks on a life-changing journey when he signs on as bartender and personal valet to a legendary food writer and social critic who travels the country by private railroad car.


For more than 40 years, the Orange County Fictionaires has been a creative home to dozens of professional writers, including  bestselling authors Elizabeth George, T. Jefferson Parker, Debra Holland, and National Book Award winner Neal Shusterman.

In their first anthology of short stories, you will discover a collection of riveting fiction crafted by some of Orange County’s finest authors. There’s talent, yes. As well as skilled, experienced storytelling. But there’s also something more: A spark of exhilaration that arises from the encouragement and enthusiasm of our fellow Fictionaires.

I guarantee this collection will have you riveted, and leave you wanting more!” – Neal Shusterman, winner of the National Book Award. Author of SCYTHE.
