About James Edgar Skye

About James Edgar Skye

https://linqapp.com/james_skye

My name is James Edgar Skye, and I go by J.E. Skye or The Bipolar Writer. As you might have guessed, I am Bipolar (or I have Bipolar 1 disorder). I also suffer from social anxiety and panic disorder. I am proud of who I am when it comes to my mental illnesses because it is a part of who I am inside and out. I am first and foremost a mental health advocate and writer. I run and write blog posts for The Bipolar Writer blog (link below), a collaborative mental health advocacy blog. It has become a safe place for others, such as myself, to share our experiences with mental health so that together we can end the stigma surrounding mental illness.

I can now say I am a published author, and you can find my book The Bipolar Writer: A Memoir on Amazon, look it up by James Edgar Skye or click the link below. I am also releasing my first fiction novella, entitled Angel on the Ward on December 15, 2020, the anniversary of my mom's passing. The book's release is in honor of my mother.

I am a graduate student working on my MFA in Creative Writing and English with two classes and a finish date in 2021. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing and English from Southern New Hampshire University, where I graduated summa cum laude (also where I am studying for my Masters).

As you might expect, writing is a significant part of my life. I have written non-fiction, fiction, short stories, poetry, novellas, and screenplays. Right now, I have several projects in the "work-in-progress" stage and one self-published creative non-fiction piece, my memoir entitled The Bipolar Writer: A Memoir.  My foray into fantasy fiction entitled, The Rise of the Nephilim is in editing, and I am looking for an agent and publisher.

In 2021, I will be officially launching my LLC, The Bipolar Writer Ghostwriting Services. I also launched The Bipolar Writer Podcast in November of 2020.

Writing is my life. It is a therapeutic experience, and I would not want to do anything else in this world. I do have hobbies outside of writing. You can't be a writer without a love for reading. I love to read and listen to audiobooks while I write. Listening to music is a passion during the writing process as well. I am also an avid sports fan, and my favorite teams are as follows: Lakers, Dodgers, Broncos, and Alabama football. I am also planning on getting into photography, hiking, and traveling in the future.

My hope for this Patreon account is to find a way to get enough Patrons to focus on my writing and Podcast work full-time. I want to begin to build my brand, The Bipolar Writer, through my memoir, merchandising, my podcast, and my mental health advocacy work. With my memoir published, it has opened up time for other projects like short stories and ghostwriting. There is also expanding my mental health advocacy with my brand, which is a significant part of my daily life.

I will also release two "exclusive" chapters from my novella "Angel on the Ward" to all tiers. Also, this goal will help me hire a part-time editor for my blog and to have it professionally looked at to improve all areas of the blog.
