About

I got bit by the vampire bug at a young age. Moved to New Orleans in my 20's to find Lestat.

Didn't find him.

Instead, I found a job as a vampire tour guide, which is probably the next best thing, and for the last 5 years, I've been professionally telling vampire stories to fans of the undead from all over the world.

Because there are only so many stories I can touch on in a 90 minute tour, and at the suggestion of countless wonderful fans of my work who have suggested such, I've finally launched a podcast, Rose Sinister Vampires.

This is the result of literally decades of fandom and research, more than a little legit academic scholarship, and 5 years spent honing my craft as a storyteller.

With your support, every two weeks, Rose Sinister: Vampires will upload a new half hour podcast, each episode discussing a popular vampire story and breaking it down in the context of the history and the folklore which it draws from and was created in. I believe that understanding the origins of vampire stories is critical to understanding the ways and reasons these tales of the undead continue to grip our imaginations. 

As patrons of this project, you'll be helping me pursue my lifelong loves of history, vampires, and storytelling, so that I can reach an audience far beyond visitors to New Orleans.

Because of you, I'm able to continue my research and hone my skills as an artist. 

Thank you, for your love, support, and encouragement.

Self-sustainability. This podcast is a hobby and something that I love. But hosting, promoting, and acquiring materials to study and learn from, as well as occasional travel expenses to bring you more vampire nerdiness all add up. 

I've calculated that I need at least 500 Patrons at the lowest tier of sponsorship to make this project self-sustaining. After Patreon takes their cut and I pay taxes, I'll have enough left over to cover hosting fees, my very limited promotional budget, the cost of the books and movies I need to buy (for research, of course), and continue to pay the freelance editors I rely on to make my podcasts sound their best (learning to edit well takes time, and I'd rather spend my time working on new content).

At 500 Patrons, I'll also have the ability to take one or two trips a year to various conventions and conferences to continue to grow the podcast and connect with fans and mentors.
