About

Hi and welcome!

I'm Jamie and I’m a non-binary pan queer living in Auckland New Zealand. I write fiction. Mostly speculative (ghosts, monsters, etc) but sometimes just sweet and romancey.

I have previously published the Suburban Book of the Dead, a young adult ghost story. Writing is my passion, my calling if you will, and my goal is to make it my full-time job. That’s where you come in! I need money to pay rent, and exchange for goods and services.

I'm starting this patreon so you can get exclusive access to my new projects. I'm starting off a with a shocking true stories magazine inspired project called This Unusual Life!

I'd like to raise money to support myself, and also to be able to pay models for photos to illustrate the stories. Eventually, I'd like to release the stories as a glossy magazine-style publication, and paying someone for layout and design would be necessary. I may also eventually run a Kickstarter for that, depending on how the patreon goes. 

This Unusual Life!

Imagine if the British Royal family were all murderous fairies from another world. Imagine if monsters, ghosts and aliens were all just a part of everyday life. 

I plan to write and release stories, articles, listicles and adverts set in a world similar to ours, but with some key supernatural differences. The writing style will evoke ‘true story’ magazines and tabloids (think Daily Mail meets SCP or TMZ meets Welcome to Night Vale). Expect scandal, vampires, vicious fey overlords, monster hunters, queer content of all kinds and horoscopes

Please read "Near death experience thwarted by family vampire", a sample story for This Unsusual Life! available for free as a taster for the content.

I’m also working hard on lots of other fiction projects.  Patrons may get updates on these projects and sneak peeks as well. You can check out my queer theme park romances here: https://www.amazon.com/Jaxon-Knight/e/B07T5KB4W6/

What will you get if you back me?

You'll get my eternal gratitude, because it means you believe in me, which is amazing.

You’ll also get content from the This Unusual Life! project, at least once a month. You'll get to direct the series some with polls and your feedback. I'll make patreon-only videos and behind the scenes posts every so often, and you'll also get pictures of my cat or random doodles that I drew. 

On the higher tiers you can submit ideas for stories and vote on what you want me to write next, get access to more exclusive stories and sneak peaks at my longer projects.

If you're feeling very generous you can sign up to get hand written postcards from me at least once a month.
