Twisted Timber Pub & Grill (and coffee)

Twisted Timber is blocks away from Nick’s parents’ house. Though I’ve never been there for dinner,  I have stopped in for several great lattes.

The barista & entire crew are always super friendly. It is only a matter of time before I stop off for some shuffleboard, brew & hand-crafted food…

Pics for the Pix

Pix Theater in Nampa is currently being restored. It has a long way to go, but eventually it will return as a highlight & landmark of Nampa’s downtown.

Earlier this month White Pine Boutique put on a small fundraiser at Flying M Coffee Garage to raise money for the restoration of the Pix. Four local photographers put together 6 photograph series with no rules or expectations, except that they must feature an organic white t shirt from the White Pine.

Below is my series. Gigantic thanks to Matt for modeling. And a pet for Porter for starring in the final photo…

I just finished watching Julie & Julia. You know, the movie about Julie (just your average girl next door, but with a love for cooking) who takes on cooking & blogging her way through Julia Child’s cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The movie touches on publishers & the struggle of having a book published.

Seems only fitting to follow up the movie with this post on a recent Boise Weekly article on cooking self-publishing.

This assignment led me to photograph Martin Shepard (a nice guy with more energy than most, not to mention a busier schedule than most) of Borderline Publishing. The whole staff was really nice, including the shop cat, Kimberly.

One Saturday morning I met Aaron Patterson, a local author, at a Nampa Coffeeshop. You can check out his novels on Amazon here.

Amy Atkin’s article on authors, publishers & self-publishing is here.

My sister-in-law is an immensely talented writer. If you know an agent or a publisher…
