Greetings, readers! You are a reader, right? I hope so -- stories and books are awesome!

I also hope you've wandered to my Patreon page because you like my stories. I get all teary and gushy inside when I find out someone enjoys my writing. But if you don't know much about me or my writing, dark fantasy tales are my addiction of choice. This includes epic, urban, romantic, and humor -- all of my fantasy has a bit of a dark bent to it.

I've delved into the waters of indie publishing, and let me tell you, while I'm enjoying getting my work out there, it's not without its cost! That would be time and money. Although I've been writing for over two decades (and have studied creative writing extensively -- I have an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University), it's still a steep hill to the top...or even halfway to the top.

There's not much I can do about that whole time thing, at least not until my kids get older. What I'd give for my toddler to be old enough to start Kindergarten! But I'm working with what I have, trying to write and publish within my limits. The money thing, though, now I know I can work on that a little more. And that's what brought me to Patreon.

Writing. Nothing I love more than uncovering new characters and their worlds. So, I figured, why not offer some of my shorter writing to my fans, to the people who wish to support me along my writing and publishing journey?

On my Patreon page I'll post flash fiction stories and poems, usually all fantasy related, but I may wander off that path for brief moments. Pledges are currently per creation, and I intend to post about one story or poem per month -- no more than two if I'm feeling especially inspired. This is so I keep myself working on my other stories and novels for publication.

And I want to send a huge thank you to anyone who does decide to pledge. You all rock and are awesome readers, and knowing that you like my writing gives me a huge grin (and that teary and gushy stuff I mentioned earlier)!

Thank you so much, and happy reading!

Access to all of the flash fiction and poems I post.

Pick a writing prompt, any writing prompt (as long as it's PG-13). I'll use your prompt for a flash fiction story or poem. Prompts will be used in the order received and you can offer a new prompt once I use your last suggestion.

You really want to see some of my raw material? Well, you asked for it. I'll post an excerpt from my current work-in-progress (short story or novel intended for publication) at least once a month. And maybe if you really want to and have the time, you can ask to beta read some of my writing in its rough draft entirity as well!

A signed copy of my most recent trade paperback and any future trade paperbacks as long as you are a patron. (Current timetable is one novel/trade paperback published every 12-18 months. More often once my toddler is in school!)
Goals
$0 of $13 per Flash Story/Poem
You're all such lovely, supportive people! I picked $13 for my first goal because I love the number 13... and it would help me get started at least minimally with advertising my stories and novels on Facebook and Amazon.
