On the national level, Pat has written for GreenPrints and The American Gardener, and she is the author of Cool Springs Press' Northwest Gardener's Handbook (2014). Pat and her husband Steven still garden on their Spokane Valley property.

Sue Mulvihill (Spokane, WA) Susan Mulvihill is a garden columnist, Master Gardener and author of the blog, "Susan's in the Garden." In 1978, she and her husband, Bill, moved to Spokane, Washington, where they live on five acres. While there's plenty of room to grow a wide variety of edibles, perennials and other ornamentals, Susan's biggest challenge was learning what would grow in her new surroundings.
