My name is T. Thorn Coyle

I often say that books saved my life. They did. They got me through a difficult childhood, enabling me to escape the violence and confusion and enter worlds where narratives made more sense.

I write. A lot. I'm launching the first of my new, nine book urban fantasy series, The Witches of Portland, and last year, released the alternative history fantasy series called The Panther Chronicles, which got a lot of support and good reviews, which I'm grateful for. 

I also write essays and Facebook and Twitter posts to try and help us all navigate these times. We need each other.

I write both to pay it forward, and to pay it back.

My writing journey started at age five, when I pushed paper and pencil under the glowing orange nightlight at the head of my trundle bed. The poems I wrote then are lost to history.

After being a traditionally published non-fiction author for years, some characters showed up at my door and knocked. 

I opened that door, and four years later, here I am. 

What do I want? To send novels, stories, and essays out into the world that say two things: Magic is real. Justice is worth fighting for.

Patreon enables me to write more, which also helps me write better. Which is where you come in: You help support the stories and essays so I have more time to write the novels.

A monthly pledge supports one essay and one piece of short fiction. These are made available to the general public for free...funded by you.

Thank you so much. 

May one thousand blessings rain upon your head.
