On December 18, join author Rob DeBorde as he explores how an animated octopi got him a gig at the Food Network, led to a cookbook about fish, and ultimately made it possible to write about 19th century booksellers and zombies in the rain.
Rob DeBorde is the author of Portlandtown: A Tale of the Oregon Wyldes, a supernatural horror adventure. Rob's first book, Fish on a First-Name Basis, reads suspiciously like an indispensible guide to all things wet and edible with nary a zombie in sight. Rob’s inexplicable foray into food writing also includes scripting 55 episodes of Alton Brown’s Good Eats extravaganza and being the creative force behind the award-winning online animated cooking show Deep Fried, Live! with Tako the Octopus. In his spare time he designs sports logos, collects beer labels, and cooks mussels . . . alive!
Rob lives downriver from Portland, Oregon. He likes pugs, local brew, and the color orange. And zombies.
