Hello! Welcome! 

I'm Lizz Donnelly and I'm a writer, knitter, cat lady, baking enthusiast and occasional actor.

I write speculative fiction of all lengths, essays and even the odd play here and there. I love yarn, books, cute fluffy animals, bad puns, and healthy doses of sarcasm.
I'm a fan of 1980s crime dramas, theater (musical and otherwise), classic movies, trivia games, and I'm a little addicted to the Great British Baking Show. I have a BA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing, and I work for an accountant (I know, right?!) because that's showbiz, baby. :/

I'd like to use Patreon as a motivator to produce more content--I work so much more productively with a deadline. I've started a blog series for myself, but thought it might be nice to share it. If I can also bring in a few extra dollars to support my yarn and coffee habits (and let's be realistic, my student loans), then so much the better. 

If you join now, you'll receive my monthly blog series, Canon Blast!, where I work my way through the "classic" science fiction and fantasy canon, one book at a time. The blog series comes with a companion flash fiction written for a character that I thought was treated terribly, or was overlooked. $2 and up patrons can follow along with my brand new serial space adventure, MINUET IN ZERO G, which follows a group of orchestra musicians stranded Gilligan's Island-style on a new planet. 

Not sure you're going to like me or my writing? Right now you can check out a sample story called "Too Good, At Least" which is available for free in the second issue of Speculative City magazine, at www.speculativecity.com. Check out the other stories while you're there, too. They're great!  

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you'll stick around.

Your $1 pledge will get you my monthly blog, Canon Blast!, where I dissect a work from the SF/F "canon." As a totally free bonus, you will also receive a flash fiction from the point of view of a character that I thought didn't get enough screen time. Also, you'll receive a monthly picture of my cat, who is the cutest.

 All the awesome from the $1 tier, PLUS a chapter of my brand new serial adventure story. Do you like music? Musicians? Absurdity in space? Getting three pieces of writing + a cute cat picture for $2? (That's 50 cents a thing, and a really good deal. I don't even think you can buy gum for 50 cents anymore.) This tier is for you!

 You're awesome! In addition to all the cool stuff from the previous tiers, you'll get to help CHOOSE the adventure for Minuet in Zero G. You'll also get exclusive, behind the scenes info-- a peek at my revision process, maps, character sketches, in progress knitting pictures...it could be anything!

All the cool stuff from the lower tiers PLUS a hand knit (or crochet) thing mailed directly to you! It will NEVER be bigger than a breadbox. Looking at koozies, hats, or mittens, potentially. Limiting this tier because realistically I have almost no time--honestly, don't do this. Just message me about a commission. I take them on rare occasions.
