Marie Gorham began creating Zig Zag’.

At war’s end, Lieutenant Commander Gorham returned to their historic adobe home in Santa Barbara.

A third child was born; together John and Marie finished the concept book as an original work of art.


More than 60 years later their oldest daughter and her husband published ‘Zig Zag’ – dedicated in loving memory to her parents.


A story within a story…a delightful read!
