Hello and welcome to my Patreon!

I'm an award-winning writer of fantasy and science fiction, author of the Hugo-nominated Xuya universe series (Vietnamese-inspired space opera), and the Dominion of the Fallen series (alternate 19th Century in devastated Gothic Paris with dragons).

I've won three Nebula Awards, a Locus Award and four British Science Fiction Association Awards, and I've been a finalist for the Hugo and Sturgeon Awards. I enjoy writing books about dragons, spaceships, families and fish sauce, and walking disaster characters who need to be rescued from their own mistakes (*)
(*) or who do the rescuing, grumbling all the while. 

I'm starting this because I really need to diversify my income streams. In order to keep creating fiction, I need your help. 

Many things, depending on which rewards tier you subscribe to! Subscribers can get access to life and publishing updates, story notes, recipes, Q&A, and the occasional shiny thing. 

I'll post content at least once a month. 

Your patronage makes it possible for me to get enough time and financial security to do the things I love (aka: putting characters through the wringer, wondering about how much kissing and backstabbing is enough (NEVER enough hahaha), and worrying way too much about the right way to translate Vietnamese into English or French into English. Every subscriber matters. Thank you so much.
