Reading at The Twig with authors Manning Wolfe and Bill Rodgers

Manning is an author and attorney, with one foot in the business world and one foot in the creative realm. Her business experience, combined with her vivid imagination manifests in quality services for clients, as well as compelling storytelling for readers. The first in her legal thriller series, Dollar Signs: Texas Lady Lawyer vs Boots King, will be published on February 18, 2016. The second in the series, Dollar Signs: Texas Lady Lawyer vs Browno Zars will follow in the summer. Manning is a graduate of Rice University and the University Of Texas School Of Law. She makes her home in Austin, Texas with her mate Bill. Her grown son Aaron lives nearby. Texas Lady Lawyer vs. Boots King: DOLLAR SIGNS: Texas Lady Lawyer vs. Boots King is the first in a series of legal thrillers based on actual client files. MERIT BRIDGES, an attorney and widowed mother in Austin, Texas, works hard, drinks too much wine, and sleeps with younger men. When Merit goes after a shady corporation threatening her client, she encounters hired gun Boots King. His charge is simple, “Stop her!” Merit and her team – including Betty, a mothering office manager with a bad-ass attitude – struggle to stay alive, while they navigate a labyrinth of legal issues, and prove once again that you don’t mess with a Texas lady lawyer. Bill is a comedy writer and author living in Austin, Texas. He is currently writing a series of short-form humor books, offering a funny take on historical events. Bill’s comedy writing has taken many forms, including jokes, sitcom scripts, action-comedy screenplays, and short stage plays. He has written comedy sketches performed by Esther’s Follies on Austin’s famed 6th Street, and short plays performed by local theater groups. Bill has written for Jay Leno for over twenty years. Bill’s material has been used in Jay’s monologues and comedy routines around the world. The first in the series is the Texas Edition, taking a fun slant on historical events in the Lone Star State. The next books in the series will include the Golf Edition, the World History Edition, and the Sports Edition, among others.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
