Novelist Spurs Passion Over Parking
Here\'s An LATimes Story Bob Cox sent over on romance novelist Danielle Steel.
She has 26 residential permits in her tony Pacific Heights neighborhood--more than any San Franciscan this has unleashed passions not normally associated with her 50-odd romance novels.
There has not only been angry sniping from neighbors but also miffed letters to the editor and a recent local newspaper headline that read: \"Danielle\'s Parking Orgy.\"
\"No single-family home should ever be allowed to have 26 parking permits,\" said Myron Zimmerman, who lives across the street from Steel. \"It\'s way too excessive. She already has a huge underground garage and extra outside parking on her property. It puts people around here in a bind. If we have any kind of social event, we\'ve got to hire valet parkers.\"
