STERLING COURT CUL-DE-SAC


Sterling Court Cul-de-sac is a seven-part story about a fictional cul-de-sac in Sacramento, California that has seven dwellings. A "slice of life" insight into each household is revealed. The names of characters, and the incidents portrayed, are fictitious. The Sterling Court cul-de-sac mentioned is not associated with any factual Sterling Court cul-de-sac. Genuine persons, living and dead, bona fide organizations and businesses, authentic products, and factual localities are included to enhance the setting.

A cul-de-sac, also known as a dead end, is a street with only one inlet/outlet. A cul-de-sac is often not an exact synonym for dead end and can also refer to a circular end, allowing for easy turning at the end of the street. Such streets are created in urban planning to limit through-traffic in residential areas.

Most of the text for these stories is 16-font with extra space between sentences to help make reading easier for visually impaired and dyslexic readers.

D.B. Pacini-Christensen and Tim Christensen co-host a monthly Starry Night Open Mic Music Showcase. They dedicate this book to their friends who have supported the showcase for so many years.
