Welcome to my Patreon page. Huge thanks to you if you've come here based on my other books and stories, and applause and confetti shower you all your days if you've decided you'd like to support me here at any of the reward levels.

NOTE: If you decide to support me here on Patreon, your first payment will be charged on the day you sign up, and then again on the first of each month. For the best value, if you're new you should sign up close to the beginning of the month. However, for your immediate sign-up, you will get the current two Duo Ex machina novellas, Fly by Night and Sacrifice.

Why I have a Patreon
It's hard to make a living as a writer of fiction. I make most of my living as freelance corporate writer. I'd love to write more fiction, but there are bills to be paid, yadda yadda. I'm hoping that with your support I'll be able to work fewer 'corporate' hours and make more time to tell stories of adventure, love and sometimes music!

This Patreon adventure is aimed, in the first instance, at re-releasing my two crime novellas, Fly By Night and Sacrifice (completed as of August 2018) and then writing at least three more novellas in the series about Frank Capriano and Milo Bertolone, loving couple and members of the two-man band, Duo Ex Machina. The third of the series, Number One Fan, began to be posted fortnightly in August 2018.

Your pledges will allow me to make time to write these novellas, as well as paying for new cover art, editing and formatting of the final stories for mobi and ebook versions.

What do you get?
I aim to give my backers value for money, so there'll be posts about Melbourne (where most of the stories will be set), my inspirations, sneak peeks of other works in progress, bits of other writing and some writing tutorials (depending on which tier you support). Higher support levels will get mail three times a year, naming rights in stories, both e- and physical books and stories written especially for you.
