Who am I and what do I do:

All I've ever wanted to do was write for a living.

I learned to read and write as a toddler and then promptly picked up a pencil and wrote on every single surface that I could. Fast forward to over twenty years later and I'm still writing everywhere that I can. Thankfully, I'm much better at writing now than I was when I was four.

My background is largely in History (both of my degrees so far are in that field) but I'm also studying intersections of identity in comic books and related literature for my MA in Literature. I apply that background to what I write whether it's in fiction or in the articles and reviews that I do.

You can find my fiction in Fireside Fiction and in the Undercities anthology by Dirty Bird Press. I have also written non-fiction (essays, reviews, articles) for Word of The NerdComicsAlliance,and Strange Horizons. I also have a website where I write about commentary on and criticism of both pop culture and the fandoms it spawns. (NonFiction Masterlist here)

I'm constantly and currently working on projects for my blog Stitch's Media Mix that focus on positive and diverse representation in fandom spaces and in the media we consume.

Right now, I'm trying to balance a busy grad school courseload, my part-part time job, and my writing, but I'm still trying super hard to make sure that readers here and elsewhere get good content! Patreon can help make that happen!

Any and all support is welcome and appreciated!

Goals
$242 of $400 per month
In addition to the two PAID guest posts for my website attained in the previous goal, this goal will allow for me to pay for transcription on one video or audio file per month. 

I'll start on my backlog first and then incorporate new material.
