Hi, lovelies!

I'm Alex, a panromantic, demisexual, and nonbinary author of queer science fiction and fantasy. My pronouns are they/them/their. I write queer stories full of explosions and morally gray characters all across the queer spectrum, but free of queer pain or tokenism, because, hey, EVERYONE IS QUEER! When not writing, I'm a high school English teacher, waging epic battles against comma splices, misused apostrophes, and anyone still under the delusion that the singular they is grammatically incorrect.

<h5>My debut adult science fiction novel, Empire of Light is the first book in the Voyance series about a demi-gay assassin who takes on an entire Empire to avenge his friends and will set the world on fire to save the guy he loves. Think gay Firefly with magic, full of queerness and explosions.</h5>I'm currently working on the following projects:
  • "Weaver of Ink and Stars" -- a short story about a nonbinary tattoo artist and thief who falls for the agent whose ship they were supposed to steal; think Nonbinary Fullmetal Alchemist in Space.
  • REPUBLIC OF SHADOWS -- Book 2 in the Voyance series
  • WHAT MONSTERS REMAIN -- an alternate history fantasy set in 1946 Dresden, featuring secret agents, genderqueer boxers, queer underground bars and people activating abilities through trauma (also known was my Queer Agent Carter with Monsters Book).
Patrons will get access to snippets, short stories, and flash fiction set in the world of Empire of Light, get to vote on and request which prompts or stories I'm writing next, as well as exclusive posts, videos, and essays on craft advice, gender, and all things queer speculative fiction.

Thanks so much for checking this out and for your support at whichever level works for you!

Cheers and happy reading!
Alex

Goals
$12 of $150 per month
Once I hit $150 a month, I will make all Empire of Light short stories and serials available to all patrons, regardless of level. At this point, my writing of short fiction can literally put food on my and my wife's table and cover our monthly grocery staples, so that would be a massive accomplishment.
