Hello hello, how are ya? Thanks for stopping by, let me tell you a little about me: I'm Karis, just past the quarter-century-mark, reader, writer, pseudo-Italian, auburn, and a few more things you learn as you get to know me :) 

I night-work for an app but the thing is: I'm a writer. It's not just what I want to do with my life, it's who I am, it's the dream that's kept me going since I was a second grader who thought my scribbled words in a notebook could change the world. It's the fire that races through my veins and light that shines in my soul, if we want to be terribly sappy about it, which I almost always do.

I write a lot about mental illness, because I have diagnosed mental illnesses and it's my passion to see the world eradicated of stigma, and to help people understand what it's like living with a mental illness.

Other things I write about include books (especially young adult novels, as kidlit is a truly radical category these days), relationships, and occasionally politics. 

This Patreon exists because I write essays in addition to the novels I hope to sell someday. Those essays sometimes get picked up by places that pay an okay amount (yay!) or no amount at all (still yay cause publication!) and in order to offset the time and occasionally monetary costs of writing, and to add to my income and help me pay for things like therapy, doctors' visits, and medication (mental illness is so fun guys!), you guys get charged per published piece.

You can give me as much as you want ($1? Incredible! $3? Swell! $10? Awesome!) per published post, and you can cap it at any amount per month (so you can do anything from $1 for 1 piece a month to $1 for 5 pieces a month to...well, you get it).

If you have any questions: let me know! I'm in the midst of recreating this page so I'm super open to suggestions! Happy to meet ya and have you here :)
