Welcome!


My name is Mario, and I'm a fantasy writer and creator of The Wilderness. This page is a collection of my writing and associated content, ranging from short stories, to illustrations and more! I've been writing tales for many years now, but have only recently taken up the helm of wanting to chase my dream of making a profession out of it through self-publishing my works. I'm honored that you would want to support what I do, and I welcome the opportunity of working alongside you to create fantastic stories!

My writing is influenced primarily by Native American folklore along with other cultural mythology and more contemporary subjects. I choose the act of transformation as a running theme in my work because I see dynamic change as an essential element of life itself. With every experience we all grow and become something more than we were before. My stories challenge my characters to resolve their identities in new and changing bodies, wrestling with both the benefits and consequences such changes would bring about. I absolutely love getting the chance to explore the dynamic, magical character of humanity and life itself, in both its highs and its lows through writing this way.

Becoming a part of our Patreon community as a Patron Partner gives you first access to my content before it goes up anywhere else! You'll have the chance to glimpse behind the scenes insights into my creative process and voice your opinions on stories you'd like to see in the future. Exclusive illustrations, video tutorials on creative skills, and a network of supportive individuals await you. Without your support, it would be impossible for me to continue doing what I love.

Join me on this creative journey of growth and discovery, and together we can create something truly amazing!

Common Questions

How Does Patreon Work?

Patreon is a platform that enables us to create something amazing together. It allows you to contribute towards my writing expenses and collaborate with me by voicing your insights into.

How many stories will you release a month?

I release new story parts nearly every day via my associated One-Hour Story program with completed short stories averaging once or twice a week. Major projects such as short story anthologies, self-help books, or novels are released approximately once every other month!

Where Does the Money Go?

I put 100% of the pledges received  towards my living expenses, educational courses to improve desired skills, and hiring illustrators, cover artists, or editors as necessary to complete my writing projects. Your support helps me keep the lights on so I can focus more of my time on content creation, resulting in more frequent, higher-quality stories for your enjoyment.

Do I have to pay in US Dollars?

NO- Pay in any currency! This website is based in the US and so everything is written in Dollars, but any currency used will be automatically converted.


I don't have much money, can I still become a Patron Partner?

Yes, of course! Please only sign up to pledge what you can easily afford. I never want you to go beyond your means, and I appreciate every one of you regardless! Even $1 per month adds up and goes miles towards helping me continue to make great stories and more for YOU!

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?

Yes of course! I understand that sometimes financial situations change, and you will always have the choice of logging in to change or cancel your pledge whenever you want.
