Hello and welcome!

Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon page.

Hi, I'm Tikiri. I've been an international vagabond, an immigrant girl and a recovering nomad who's still trying to figure out what "home" means. I'm also the award-winning author of the Red-Heeled Rebels thrillers and the Rebel Diva empowerment books.

My passion is to write about topics that burn like a fire raging in my belly. And what burns inside of me is the injustice of how women are treated around the world.

You see, I've traveled internationally since I was a toddler and have studied, worked and lived on four continents now.

No, I'm not talking about a jet-setting lifestyle here. I'm talking about globetrotting that comes from necessity—a necessity to leave a war-torn country, to get away from a troubled home, to find a school, to get a job, to make a living, to discover freedom and opportunity.

So if you ask me where I'm from, I'll tell you frankly I don't know and to please don't ask me to choose. I've lived in far too many places to handcuff myself to any one culture, one tradition, one religion or any one narrow ethnic identity.

I am a global citizen who speaks out on issues all around the world. Without discrimination.

That means I worry some people. Yes, it does. As it should. Because if you're hiding behind a veil of culture / religion / tradition / politics to justify abuse or perpetrate human rights violations, I will write about you. And I will write in the only way I know how—with raw, visceral, heartfelt, honesty.

So, come join the rebel-ution. Stand for women's rights around the world. And get exclusive content you won't find anywhere else. 
Tiers
Story Rebel
$2 or more per month

The first Tuesday of every month, you'll get an exclusive short story from my upcoming NEW book, The Accidental Traveler, that will be published in 2020.


These stories are based on a lifetime of travel in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. They've never been published. I'm offering them exclusively to you here. 


Take a journey around the world with me while you sit in your comfy armchair at home. You don't need a passport or a plane ticket for this voyage!

Fireside Rebel
$7 or more per month

You'll get everything in the above tier.


Plus, you'll be invited to my secret story-telling Facebook Live show which I host once a week. I'll read 2-3 chapters from my Red-Heeled Rebels series and take your questions. At the end, I'll share the audio file with you so you get your own personal copy. 


If you don’t want to wait for the audio book, this is your chance to get the audio downloads as I read them. 


Get ready for the show!

Rebel Diva
$11 or more per month

You'll get all the benefits in the above tiers. 


Plus, every week, you'll receive the first draft chapters of my NEW novel series. Your name, however you'd like to share it (pen names are fine), will be published on the Acknowledgement Page of each book. Best of all, you'll get to name all the villains.


This year, I'm writing a 3-book vigilante justice / renegade series with the Red Heeled Rebels characters. Get involved in the writing of a novel (three, in fact) and see how the creative process works.

Get on a freight ship to end trafficking
$399 or more per month

One-Time Only


My Red-Heeled Rebels novels showcase spunky, sassy women who stand for their rights and fight back against villains.


One of my characters is a smart young hacker, who once was bought from Asia in a shipping container and pimped to a brothel in Europe. I wrote about her ordeal briefly, knowing that many real girls and young women endure this brutality every day.    


So, here's my hair brained idea: Why not get on one of these unglamorous freight ships and go from port to port to raise awareness of human trafficking? Why not, at the same time, write a thriller with kickass heroines who shed their shackles and fight for their freedoms, as I journey across the oceans? 


At every port of call, I will talk to local communities about how to spot trafficked children and their handlers and to work together to end this despicable, nauseating, inhumane crime against the most vulnerable of our world. 


Want to join my adventure and work to end this horrific crime? You'll get to name the characters in the new mid-ocean-written thriller, be the first to read my drafts, and be showcased in the book as a supporter of anti-human trafficking.

 

If you're worried about me - a woman, just five foot tall (in heels) , being alone in the high seas - I'm no stranger to adventure or risk. I've lived on four continents, travelled extensively and celebrated my first degree with a solo skydive. Yes, I fear a lot of things but I do them anyway. Life's too short not to. Plus, I do know some martial arts. 

 

I've written my stories in cars, on planes and even on an overnight train from Chicago to New Orleans. Now, put me to work on a freight ship across the Pacific!
