DJ Gray is creating Stories

Have you ever wondered what might happen if you met yourself? How the world would be different if maybe you’d turned right instead of left. Paused a second more before leaving that shop?

What about if the captain of your spaceship was in a wheelchair? What does an asexual person hear in a siren’s call? What is the most important thing in a time traveler’s pocket?

The answer lies in the stories you’ll get access to if you become a Patron.

Who Am I?

DJ Gray is a made-up person. It's a pen name I created to honor two of the biggest supporters of this short mischief maker and storyteller. The last name comes from Babylon 5, one of the biggest SF/F media influences on my life.

I grew up a wanderer and my best friends were always books, but I was one of those people who never ever was satisfied by “The End.” I always wanted more details, more stories. This eventually led to scribbling down my ideas for what came next in notebooks and wherever else I could get a bit of space for my words.

I had a steady diet of folklore, history, mythology, and anything else I could get my hands on. However, as I got older and I kept writing, I realized that there weren’t a lot of stories featuring people like me. People who were disabled. People who were asexual. So I decided to start writing them.

Granted like most writers, I also have a day job to support this writing career of mine.  My hope is to one day, be able to quit the day job and support myself with the writing.  Patreon is a start in that direction. 

What You Get:


Short Stories and Novellas written by me. Mostly Science-Fiction or Fantasy, but could also branch out into any number of subgenres (Time Travel, Cthulhu Mythos, Solarpunk, Alternate Histories). You also get to help me choose the theme of what I’ll be writing on that month.

How Often You’ll Get It:

At least once a month. Sometimes there’ll be more than one story a month. You’ll be the first to see them for a while. They’ll be access-locked to Patreon supporters for at least 6 months.


In Conclusion: 

Thank you for getting this far!  I'd love it if you selected a patron level, kept an eye out for updates, and let the stories flow.  

Regardless, thank you so much for even considering a thing.
