I got the chance to visit my co-author, John Bladek, in Spokane this past week. After working on our upcoming novel, we were in need of a break. Both of us generate a lot of inspiration from going on walks and soaking in nature, as do many other writers and artists. Some famous names who looked to the outdoors for creative vision include Sir Walter Scott, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
In need of an outing, John and I thought we might get a creative boost from going to Manito Park in the heart of Spokane. The park is located on the South Hill and is gorgeous – definitely my favorite one in the city. The grounds include a Japanese garden and a conservatory, along with beautiful trails. Here are some snapshots along with a video down below of John’s and my funny adventures around the park.
Thanks for stopping by to check out this post. Stay tuned for more photos of magical spots I’ve encountered around the Pacific Northwest — like these fairy-esque scenes of the VanDusen Gardens.

No one likes that, especially me, and that’s just evil and punishable by unicorn horn impalement. Truly! 😉
