Writer, “Oak Stories” (p. 60)
Bill Marken grew up in the Santa Clara Valley
when there were more prune orchards and cattle ranches than tech startups, traffic jams and
frappe cappuccinos. He was the editor-in-chief
of Sunset magazine and other print and digital
publications (Garden Design, Organic Style,
ehow.com). Marken also served as president of
the board of the League to Save Lake Tahoe. He
is now a publishing consultant and writer on
environmental and landscape subjects. Marken
and his wife, Marilyn, live in Los Altos, near
their grown children and 12 grandchildren,
except for the “distant outliers in Orinda.”
Photographer/ Writer, “Sustainably Sonoma”
In 1979, Bob Holmes moved to Marin from his
native England. He quickly became established

second places in the international Errazuriz
Wine Photographer of the Year competition. He
has contributed to more than 50 books, most
recently Almonds with Marin Magazine contributor Lynda Balslev. To see more of Holmes’ work
