Hi, I’m Petra, and Adrastus Rood is the pen name of the writing duo I’m lucky enough to be a part of. It is comprised of my partner Adam and myself. We met in university and instantly knew that we wanted to go on adventures and tell stories together. We love to tell stories. Whether silly ones in our car while on long trips or ones we put into novel form.
Stories are the things that get me through the day. People sharing their stories with me, stories in great –and sometimes smutty– television, books, magazines, and movies. Stories in music, paintings, photography, and so many other forms of art. I love them all. And I feel so blessed to be able to sit down and write my own stories. Hey, at least it gets the voices out of my head. Most of the time. 😉
As Adrastus Rood, we strive through our stories to take you away from your day-to-day life and into a world that is fun, full of adventure, and hopefully a bit uplifting.
Our novel Manly Hero is available on amazon, Createspace, Smashwords, and iBooks. As well as being able to be ordered through most bookstores near you.
We are currently busy at work on Manly Hero book two. 🙂
This blog is all about artistic inspiration. Inspiration is everywhere. Internal and external. So often I have run into people who are positive about art or I’ve had one of those inspirational spark moments. But some days those people are nowhere to be found and neither is my internal spark. On those days when art feels hard, far away, or pointless, I wish I could just access those inspirational people and moments to get me back on my feet.
That is what this blog is about. It’s here to inspire you, to have honest conversations about creativity, to revel in the moments when everything is just clicking, and to mix in equal parts relaxation and silliness. 🙂
Some of the stuff on here:
- featured northwest artists/musicians/creators
- tea reviews
- thoughts on creativity and life
- and anything else that may strike my creativity fancy
So browse, read, comment. You are a part of this artistic world and it’s great that you found us.
Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
