About the Author

Matthew Richard Poole, a native Californian, has authored more than two dozen travel guides to California, Hawaii, and abroad, and is a regular contributor to radio and television travel programs, including numerous guest appearances on the award-winning Bay Area Backroads television show. Before becoming a full-time travel writer and photographer, he worked as an English tutor in Prague, a ski instructor in the Swiss Alps, and a scuba instructor in Maui and Thailand. He currently lives in San Francisco but spends most of his time on the road searching for new adventures. His other Frommer's titles include California, San Francisco, the Irreverent Guide to San Francisco, and Portable Disneyland.

A native San Franciscan, Erika Lenkert divides her time between San Francisco and Napa Valley where she is forever seeking the next best restaurant, hotel room, and fun way to savor the region. She frequently writes InStyle magazine's party guides and offers up tasty tips on the region for Food & Wine magazine. In her spare time she pays visits to local and national television news programs where she gives entertaining and cooking tips based on her book The Last-Minute Party Girl: Fashionable, Fearless, and Foolishly Simple Entertaining.
