About the Writers
Maria and Michael Smith
Maria and Michael Smith moved to Boise from Dallas in late 2009. The Smiths are travel writers but otherwise semi-retired, which means lots of biking, volunteering, working out, hiking, reading, dining out, theater-going, traveling and hosting out-of-town friends who are curious about Boise. In their working lives, Maria was (and still is) a copy editor and proofreader, and Mike was a process facilitator.
Author and historian Christina Phillips is a sixth-generation Idahoan. Her ancestors have come from various counties throughout Idaho including Fremont, Teton, Idaho, Benewah and Bannock. She has published historical narratives throughout the world, helping others to explore the history of the people, places and things that have come before them. Miss Phillips has a weekly history column in the Blackfoot Journal and is currently working on her first book which is planned to be released in 2012.
