Temple Kinyon is the daughter of Idaho wheat farmers and spent her first 33 years living life in “small town America.” After residing in Las Vegas for over 16 years, she’s decided you can take the girl out of Idaho, but not the Idaho out of the girl. This little fact compels her to seek adventure away from Vegas’s glitz, giving closeness to her rural roots when veering off the beaten path. When she’s not exploring the unique offerings of Southern Nevada, she writes. She recently self-published her first book, THE BUTTON BOXES, a middle-grade fiction adventure story fun for the whole family. Her non-fiction creations have appeared in Home & Harvest Magazine, BLVDS LV Magazine (where she also served assistant editor), Idaho Grain Magazine, and Google’s travel site touringbird.com. Temple shares her life with her husband and bulldog.
