Twin Peaks has spawned several successful books due to its success. During the show's second season, Pocket Books released three official tie-in books, each authored by the show's creators (or their family) which offer a wealth of backstory.

Official releasesEdit

Mark Frost personally considers the novels as being part of the Twin Peaks universe though purposefully avoiding the term "canon":

Q: Do you consider The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, that Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes, The Access Guide and The Secret History of Twin Peaks, this all being canon?
Mark Frost: Well I... You know, "canon" is never a word that I use. I mean, the universe of the town and the people and the stories seems, to me, broad enough to encompass anything that comes along that by one of the two primary creators... I mean, I have no trouble thinking of those books as part of our ongoing developpement of this universe and I thought [The Secret History of Twin Peaks] should actually continue in that vein.[1]

The Secret Diary of Laura PalmerEdit

The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer
Main article: The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

(ISBN 978-0-671-73590-6), September 15, 1990, written by Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch's daughter). Lynch paints a haunting portrait of an abused teen's double life, falling into a world of prostitution and cocaine abuse, while maintaining the status quo as homecoming queen and high school student. Published during the summer between the original broadcasts of the first and second seasons, the book provided fans with much-sought-after information regarding Laura's veiled personal life, including her knowledge of and/or relationship with the enigmatic character of "Killer Bob." For the most part, Lynch's book is faithful to the Lynch/Frost collaboration as it existed at the time of its publication. However, discrepancies exist, as when Laura describes a slumber party with friend Donna and cousin Maddy, contradicting a scene in Season One in which they are introduced for the first time after her death. Season Two strays from the Secret Diary by referring to diary entries that do not appear in Lynch's work and by setting the date of her death, and thus (if we assume she was seventeen years old when she died) her birth a year earlier than in the diary. (In Season Two, Episode Four, Harold Smith states that the date is "Tuesday, March 7th," making the year 1989, not 1990.) This can be resolved by simply mentally adjusting all dates in the diary to one year earlier than the date printed, since the TV show and film FIRE WALK WITH ME definitively fix the events of the series in 1989.

The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My TapesEdit

Autobiodc
Main article: The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes

May 1, 1991. Collection of transcripts from Agent Dale Cooper's audio tapes from the age of 13 to just before he goes to Twin Peaks.

Twin Peaks: An Access Guide to the TownEdit

Main article: Twin Peaks: An Access Guide to the Town

(ISBN 978-0-671-74399-4) June 1, 1991. A joint collaboration between David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks Production, Inc. and Richard Saul Wurman's ACCESS Press). Written by Gregg Almquist, Tricia Brock, Robert Engels, Lise Friedman and Harley Peyton, the book is a parody of a traveller's guide book, as published by the Twin Peaks Chamber of Commerce. Inside, fans can find anything from a history of the Native Americans around the area, to a list of songs on the jukebox in the Double-R Diner.

"Diane..." - The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper (Audio book)Edit

Main article: "Diane..." - The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper

October 1, 1990. Cassette-only release consisted of recorded Cooper messages to his never-seen assistant, Diane.

The Twin Peaks GazetteEdit

The The Twin Peaks Gazette was a 3-issue fake newspaper named after the town's own imprint. It gave fans insight into upcoming episodes and behind the scenes information.

"Call it what you want. A mood. A feeling"

On behalf of the residents of Twin Peaks, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to visit us today. I know you're going to enjoy your tour.

When I look back on these past six years as Sheriff, it's hard to believe all that's happened here in Twin Peaks. The town's really grown, and the people are changing. Business is booming. And this year, Twin Peaks High School made it to the state finals in wrestling with a co-educational squad. Unfortunately, crime's up. But I've got a real strong, conscientious team working with the FBI to solve these horrible injustices.

As you embark upon your self-guided tour, feel free to stop and talk with the townspeople. You're getting a real insider's look into a place that's different. It's a place where, as FBI Special Agent Cooper has said, "The have a cherry pie that'll kill you. Douglas firs. A yellow light that still means slow down, not speed up. Jelly donuts. A damn good cup of coffee. And air as fresh and crisp as a cracker."

-Harry S. Truman

Likes: All kinds of jelly donuts and a good cup of coffee

Education: Haverford College; FBI Academy

Actor: Kyle MacLachlan

Accomplishments:

As a teenager I became an Eagle Scout, scoring a perfect 100 on the marksmanship test. This position provided me with an understanding and appreciation of man and his environment.

Strengths:

I'm acutely aware of the human mind. If I hadn't joined the FBI, I might have been a magician; the sense of magic and mystery fascinate me.

Weaknesses:

I once allowed the execution of my professional responsibilities to be compromised by my personal feelings for a very gentle, very beautiful woman.

Agent Cooper's Tape Recorder

Episode:

All

Significance:

"Diane, I am holding in my hand a box of small chocolate bunnies." Cooper's interest in recording the smallest details of his life is made clear through his use of a tape recorder. In his autobiography, Agent Cooper: My Life, My Tapes (Pocket Books, Spring 1991), Cooper explains that this fascination dates back to his childhood days when he was forced to carry a heavy, two-reel tape recorder on his back. He was grateful when the pocket-size recorder was developed.

Famous Dialogue

Quote:

"Diane, 2:15 in the afternoon, February 24th. Entering town of Twin Peaks. Never seen so many trees in my life. Lunch was $6.31 and I left her a dollar tip. That was a tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat and a slice of cherry pie and coffee. Damn good food. And if you ever get up this way, Diane, that cherry pie is worth a stop. Okay."

-Agent Cooper

Episode:

First season, Pilot

Scene:

As he drives into Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of Laura Palmer, Special Agent Dale B. Cooper dictates into his portable tape recorder...

Recipe

8 inch Crust: 1-1/2 c. flour, 1/2 c. Crisco, 1/4 c. ice water

Mix flour and Crisco with fork. Add ice water. Mix with your hands. When blended, roll into ball and refrigerate overnight. To roll out: flour both rolling pin and flat surface, split ball in two, roll out 1/2 to fit pan and 1/2 for lattice.

Filling: 3 c. cherries (pitted, sour frozen); 1 c. water; 1c. Baker's sugar; 4 T. cornstarch; 1/8 t. salt

Thaw cherries at room temp and strain (yields 2 c. juice). Taste for sweetness, more/less sugar may be needed. Add 1 c. water to make 3 c. juice (reserve 1 c. juice for cornstarch mix). Dissolve cornstarch in 1 c. juice, stir with whip. Combine 2 c. juice, 2/3 c. sugar, salt, and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch mix, cook until clear, about 5 min. (if cooked to long, syrup gets gummy). Remove from heat, stir in 1/3 c. sugar (blend thoroughly). Pour mixture over cherries, fold with wooden spoon, cool (stir mix while cooling to prevent scum from forming on top). Pour mix in pie shell. Top completed pie with lattice crust. Bake @ 425 degrees for 35-40 min.

"...And if you're ever in Los Angeles, Diane, try Twin Peaks Cherry Pie at DuPars REstaurant and Bakery."

Sheriff's Station

Location:

Located in the center of Twin Peaks on Highway 21 (Main Street)

Points of Interest:

Moving up the ranks from Assistant Sheriff, Harry S. Truman has successfully run the Sheriff's Station for the past six years. The Sheriff's office has state-of-the-art equipment including an eight-line telephone system and intercom, photocopy machine, fax machine (since 1988), fingerpringing, Polaroid camera, and three maximum security cells, from which no one has ever escaped, until BOB.

The Station is just two blocks from the Wagon Wheel Bakery, and fresh coffee and donuts are supplied daily to the office personnel and visitors. Tours are available on Tuesdays.

Harry S. Truman

Birth date: 5/13/50

Sign: Taurus

Likes: Cowboy hats and Japanese food

Education: Twin Peaks High School; Washington State College

Actor: Michael Ontkean

Accomplishments:

My lifelong ambition was to finish college and return to Twin Peaks in some public service capacity. Being Sheriff of Twin Peaks has given me the chance to achieve this goal.

Strengths:

Because I know all about the interests and lifestyles of the people in this quirky town, I am a better law officer.

Weaknesses:

I do get lonely from time to time. Sometimes it's hard being the Sheriff. Everyone looks to me for immediate answers and solutions. Unfortunately, it's not always possible.

Andy Brennan

Birth date: 2/27/60

Sign: Pisces

Likes: Lucy

Education: Twin Peaks High School

Actor: Harry Goaz

Accomplishments:

I saved Agent Cooper's life, I think.

Strengths:

I have been told that I have a big heart; it breaks when I see something bad. I know that I would be a good father. If I had a boy, I would bring him to the Sheriff's Station when he was older and teach him the difference between good people and evil people. Lucy would make a good wife and a good mother. She could keep him occupied at the station while we were out solving crimes.

Weaknesses:

I am clumsy sometimes. Luckily, I have never injured myself. Sheriff Truman tells me that I cry too much when we're working on investigation. I'm trying to be stronger. But I can't help myself. Once I start, I'm like a leaky faucet in desperate need of a plumber.

Lucy Moran

Nickname: Luc

Birth date: 5/27/62

Sign: Genimi

Likes: To please others

Education: Twin Peaks High School; Mrs. Smith's School of Secretarial Science

Actor: Kimmy Robertson

Accomplishments:

I was the "Employee of the Year" in 1988 at the Twin Peaks Sheriff's Office, but I was surprised I won since I lost an important case file - the one Sheriff Truman told me to keep locked up - the legal-sized manila file with the green tab, and I was going to, but I left it on the top of my desk and went to wash my hands because the donuts had arrived, and when Sheriff Truman wanted it later, I could not find it. He solved the case anyway.

Strengths:

I am caring and sensitive and dedicated to helping Sheriff Truman keep a well-run office. I have excellent communications skills.

Weaknesses:

I simply don't know when to say no.

Laura Palmer in Body Bag

Episode:

First season, Pilot

Significance:

The discovery of Laura Palmer's body by Pete Martell was the establishing scene for the unfolding story about the town and people of Twin Peaks.

Birth date: 7/22/72

Sign: Cancer

Likes: Potato pancakes with creamed corn topping

Weaknesses:

I'm so afraid of BOB..

Heart Locket

Episode:

First season, Pilot

Significance:

This locket certainly had a great deal of mystery surrounding it. Given to Laura by James, they broke the locket in half while pledging their love to each other. Later, Laura's half of the locket was found where she was murdered. James buried his half, only to have Dr. Jacoby find it and take it as a memento of his love for Laura.

James Hurley

Birth date: 1/1/73

Sign: Capricorn

Likes: Harley Davidson motorcycles

Education: Twin Peaks High School

Actor: James Marshall

Accomplishments:

Coming from a broken home, I've had to raise myself; so graduating from high school is a major accomplishment.

Strengths:

I have a quiet inner strength and prefer to be alone - just me, my bike, and the open road.

Weaknesses:

I don't trust people, but people often trust me.

Lawrence Jacoby

Nickname: "Doc"

Birth date: 1/30/34

Sign: Aquarius

Likes: Bright colors and Hawaiian shirts

Education: Punahou School, Hawaii; University of Hawaii Medican School

Actor: Russ Tamblyn

My ability to see the world through rose-and aqua-colored glasses, thereby balancing the right and left side of my brain.

Weaknesses:

My inability to conform to any reality base.

Laura's Diary

Episode:

Second season, Episode 3

Significance:

Of the two diaries that exist, everyone seems to be interested in The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer. On her twelfth birthday, Laura received her diary as a gift from her parents and wrote her first entry that evening. In her last, most private confession written just days before she was found dead, Laura noted: "I'm so afraid of death."

The real lession of this diary is, never put into writing what you do not want others to know.

Will Hayward

Nickname: "Doc"

Birth date: 5/25/29

Sign: Gemini

Likes: V-neck sweaters and an occasional day off

Education: University of Washington; University of Washington Medical School

Given my busy small-town practice, unfortunately, I don't have enough time to devote to my family.

Donna Hayward

Birth date: 9/2/72

Sign: Virgo

Likes: James

Education: Twin Peaks High School

Actor: Lara Flynn Boyle

Accomplishments:

I qualified for the Twin Peaks High School Honor Roll in each of my four years. I was also voted "Most Likely to Succeed" in my senior class. It's very flattering to have received that vote of confidence from my peers. Now, I only hope that I can live up to my full potential.

Strengths:

I've always been adventurous - but careful. I guess being a doctor's daughter has taught me this instinct. When James, Maddy, and I took Laura's investigation into our own hands, that was definitely living life on the edge.

Weaknesses:

My undying friendship to Laura has caused my great pain and sorrow. I know that I'll never get over her death. I miss her so much.

Pierre Tremond

Birth date: 1/10/83

Likes: Chocolate malted with whipped cream on top

Education: Missoula High School, Montana

Actor: Sheryl Lee

Accomplishments:

I have a job and my own apartment in Missoula. I value my independence.

Strengths:

Laura and I were so close, and because I was the "older" cousin, I would often give Laura advice and moral support. I am glad I was able to come to Twin Peaks and help out Uncle Leland and Aunt Sarah in their time of need.

Weaknesses:

Our physical resemblance made people think I was Laura, when in fact, I am nothing like Laura.

Pete Martell

Birth date: 6/28/34

Sign: Cancer

Likes: Fishing and a game of chess

Education: Missoula High School, Montana

Actor: Jack Nance

Accomplishments:

I am the perennian winner of the Twin Peaks Chess Tournament, held each year durning the Packard Timber Games. Last year, I caught a 10'9", 364 pound sturgeon out of Black Lake. It made the cover story of the Twin Peaks Gazette. To my knowledge, no one has beaten my record, and I challenge anyone to try.

Strengths:

Besides being able to bait a hook in the dark, I don't know what else to say.

Weaknesses:

I love my wife.

Fish

Episode:

First season, Pilot; Second season, Episode 11

Significance:

Above Twin Peaks is a very large lake called Black Lake, and small lakes called Pearl Lakes. These lakes are known for some of the best fishing in the United States. Many of the townspeople enjoy fishing for sport, relaxation, and as a means of supplying a delicious meal.

Pete Martell was going fishing the morning he found Laura's body. Cooper was going to take advantage of some vacation time to go steelhead trout fishing, using a fishing fly called a Green Butt Skunk. Unfortunately, the fishing trip was cut a little short when Major Briggs, who had invited Cooper to join him, disappeared.

Catherine Martell

Birth date: 11/20/40

Sign: Scorpio

Likes: Family traditions

Education: Twin Peaks High School

Actor: Piper Laurie

Because my mother was very active in the PTA and League of Women Voters when I was younger, I developed a strong sense of civic duty. I served on the Twin Peaks Twon Council for 13 years and was president of the United Way for two terms. Someday, I plan to be chief operating officer of Ghostwood Country Club Estates.

Strengths:

I speak fluent Japanese and French. I used to love to go to Halloween parties because I always won the "Best Costume" prize. One year, my husband Pete and I went as a fisherman and his mermaid. We took first place, but I had a terrible allergic reaction to the rhinestones.

Weaknesses:

I tend to be a bit spiteful when I don't get my own way.

Famous Dialogue

Quote:

"Everything smells like fish around here."

-Catherine Martell

Episode:

First season, Episode 2

Scene:

In a huff, Catherine makes this comment to her husband Pete at the beginning of the scene. They are in their bedroom. Pete recounts finding a fish in the percolator earlier in the day. Catherine then becomes agitated and orders Pete to leave.

Packard Saw Mill

Location:

Located on 100 acres east of Highway 21, 2.3 miles north of Twin Peaks and east of the Great Northern Hotel. The Packard Saw Mill is on the southern shore of Black Lake.

Points of Interest:

One of the original founding families of Twin Peaks, the Packard family owns thousands of acres of forest surrounding the lake. Three generations of Packards have lived in Blue Pine Lodge - the family residence up the road from the Mill. The Mill was a major supplier of Northwest timber until recently when a fire forced its temporary closing.

Hundreds of workers are now unemployed because of the fire. The Packard Saw Mill management has assured employees that every attempt is being made to restart operations as quickly as possible. The Mill was shut down only one other time in the summer of 1935 due to a labor dispute.

Sign: Virgo

Likes: Frequent shopping trips to Seattle

Education: Fujimoto High School, Japan

Actor: Joan Chen

After my husband Andrew was tragically killed in a freak boating accident, I took over the operation of the Packard Saw Mill. I became the youngest female corporate executive/owner in the multimillion dollar timber industry.

Strengths:

I am an extremely self-motivated person. Through numerous male mentors, I have developed a survival mentality.

Weaknesses:

I've had very bad luck with men. My relationships always end in disaster. Because of certain circumstances, I know that I haven't always been honest with Harry. But some-how, he still loves me, and I really do hope that things will work out between us, but I fear they won't.

Famous Dialogue

Quote:

"Man...smell those trees. Smell those Douglas Firs."

-Agent Cooper

Episode:

First season, Pilot

Scene:

In the Sheriff's cruiser, Agent Cooper and Sheriff Truman have been following Joey Paulson, a suspect in the Laura Palmer murder case. They suddenly lose Paulson and stop by the side of Sparkwood Mountain Road. Cooper rolls down his window and, with a deep breath, enthusiastically exclaims...

Pine Cone

Episode:

All

Significance:

In addition to their unique configuration, pine cones play a critical role in the cycle of life. Those Douglas Firs that Cooper admires are reproduced through their cones which contain seeds. The small knobby, spare-producing male cones are usually on the bottom branches. The large, scaly female cones are usually on the top branches. The wind blows the seed from one to the other. The pine cone is the official Twin Peaks flower.

RR Diner

Location:

Located on Highway J, down the street from Horne's Department Store.

Points of Interest:

Owned and operated by Norma Jennings, the RR Diner serves as the crossroad of Twin Peaks. The 1950's look of the diner is just one part of its appear Damn good coffe and cherry pie are two more enticing reasons to stop by. Open seven days a week, the RR Diner serves breakfast, lunch and daily Early Bird Dinner Specials for $7.34. Highlights of the diner's other food delights are mentioned in the Twin Peaks Access Guide.

As a community service, Norma Jennings bakes six fruit pies each July 4th for Eagle Scout Troop #294's Pie-Eating Contest. All visitors and RR Diner regulars are invited to attend.

Weaknesses:

I have made a poor choice in my selection of men, and I can't seem to resolve my difficult relationship with my mother.

Cup of Coffee

Episode:

All

Significance:

Some think it was the coffee that made things different in Twin Peaks. A damn good cup is available at the Sheriff's Station, RR Diner, and of course at the Great Northern Hotel. As Cooper said "The true test of any hotel is that morning cup of coffee."

Shelley Johnson

Nickname: Shel

Birth date: 5/30/72

Sign: Gemini

Likes: Television - mostly soap operas

Education: Twin Peaks High School (completed two years, never graduated)

Actor: Madchen Amick

Strengths:

I'm not afraid to make a buck, and I am a good provider for my wife.

Sign: Sagittarius

Likes: Football

The Gas Farm is open seven days a week, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., but closed during hunting season. The station specializes in the repair of American automobiles and motorcycles.

Great Northern Hotel

Location:

Located slightly north of Twin Peaks, and just below the base of Black Lake. West of Highway 21. Look for signs marking the turn.

Points of Interest:

Owned by Benjamin Horne, the Great Northern Hotel is the oldest and largest hotel in Twin Peaks. It was established by the Horne family in 1927. The hotel offers its guests a spectacular view of the Whitetail Falls with comfortable, rustic, woodsy surroundings and plenty of fresh air.

All 102 guest rooms were recently renovated to include new queen-sized, goose down mattresses, designed exclusively for the Great Northern Hotel by the E-Z Mattress Company of Seattle.

See the Twin Peaks Access Guide for a complete description of the Great Northern Hotel and its dining facilities.

Whitetail Falls

Location:

Located next to the Great Northern Hotel, west of Highway 21, on Whitetail Mountain. The water source for the Falls is Black Lake, approximately two miles north.

Points of Interest:

The rapids before the Falls can be treacherous, especially in the spring when the snow melts and fills the river. In the winter of 1942, an unidentified man was caught attempting to swim the current beneath the Falls. He was rescued by the Sheriff's Department and treated at Calhoun Memorial Hospital for frostbite.

Today, Whitetail Falls is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Twin Peaks. Not only is the scenic overview breathtakingly beautiful, but the Falls are the third highest waterfalls in the United States. The drop is longer than that of Niagara Falls, but not as wide.

Agent Cooper has just been shot three times in the torso and is lying in his hotel room, #315, at the Great Northern Hotel.

The clues are, "There is a man in a smiling bag"; "The owls are not what they seem"; and "Without chemicals he points." "The man in the smiling bag" was Jacques Renault.

Agent Cooper, Sheriff Truman, Deputy Hawk, and Supervisor Cole interrogate Phillip Gerard. During the interrogation, Phillip is not allowed to take his "drugs,"* and he becomes host to Mike, "The One-Armed Man." Mike claims to be BOB's "familar."

TOP SECRET

Owl

Episode:

Second season, Episode 9

Significance:

Owls can represent both wisdom and evil. In Twin Peaks, owls appear whenever UFO sightings are made. Owls are frequently mentioned in old Indian tales. Owls are first mentioned in Episode 1 from the second season. One of the three things "The Giant" tells Cooper is, "The owls are not what they seem." Cooper has yet to find out what that means.

What we do know is that on July 25, 1986, Laura Palmer was almost killed by an owl. Laura frequently was frightened by the owls she saw in the woods. In Episode 9, after BOB vacated Leland's body, the last scene is of an owl flying.

Famous Dialogue

Quote:

"Local legend. The White Lodge is a place where the spirits that rule man and nature here reside. There is also a legend of a place called The Black Lodge: the shadow self of The White Lodge, a place of dark forces that pull on this world. A world of nightmares: shamans reduced to crying children; angry spirits pouring from the woods; graves opening like flowers."

- Deputy Hawk

Episode:

Agent Cooper, Sheriff Truman, and Deputy Hawk are in the Sheriff's office. Major Briggs has disappeared. Just before vanishing, Briggs asked Cooper if he knew about The Black Lodge. Cooper now mentions this to Hawk and the Sheriff, and Hawk explains...

Production Notes

The secrets of the woods surrounding Twin Peaks were discovered on Sunday, April 8, 1990, on ABC-TV. On this date, David Lynch and Mark Frost - creators, writers, and executive producers - introduced America, and now the world, to the mysterious timber community of Twin Peaks. Shot on location in Snoqualmie and North Bend Washington, in February and March of 1989, the show currently airs in 56 countries.

Star Pics would like to thank the following people for their creative photographic contributions to this set: Paula K. Shimatsu-U, Craig Sjodin, Dean Tokuno, Kimberly Wright, and David Lynch.

A practicing astrologer for over 20 years, Bill Herbst contributed to this set by bringing his insight and experience to Twin Peaks. After careful analysis of the character profiles, Herbst determined each character's birth-date and zodiac sign.

What will happen in the future to the natives of Twin Peaks? The thing is about secrets!

"I would sit at the keyboard, and David would sit in a comfy chair, and we would go back and forth. You throw your minds up toward the ceiling, and they meet somewhere near the light fixtures. The script becomes written by a third party. The author is someone called Lynch-Frost."
