LINDA LY is the blogger behind the award-winning gardenbetty.com, called the "Best in Gardening" by Country Living and deemed a go-to source for all things green by HGTV. As a member of Slow Food USA, Linda delights in growing, harvesting, preserving, and cooking all the food that comes from the earth. She pulls endless inspiration from her modern homestead by the sea, which she shares with her husband, a pair of pugs, and a flock of chickens. When she's not digging in the dirt, she's seeking adventure on the road with her love of offshore winds, epic powder, empty trails, and hidden hot springs. WILL TAYLOR's lifelong devotion to photography began in grammar school when he started building 110 kit cameras. His love for that clicking shutter never abated. He is now an award-winning commercial and editorial fashion photographer, shooting magazine covers and celebrities for clients worldwide. Still, Will lives for all types of photography--from nature photography to cookbooks--and focusing on the art behind every shot. When not hiding behind his lens or computer screen, Will enjoys escaping into nature with his wife and friends, searching for that next bluebird powder day, glassy peeling wave, or meandering river.
