Well, hello there, friend!

I'm Elmie. I'm 25 years old, and I'm a full-time writer, living in New Zealand. I write queer romance stories with themes of diversity, positivity, and acceptance, and occasionally I illustrate them too!

Since 2012, I've crafted over 85 stories, altogether summing over 2 million words. Most of these tales are fluffy, some are sexy, some silly, or heart-wrenching, or experimental. A handful are all of the above. Every single tale is laced with love for a certain bisexual hunter and his angelic best bud.

I've been lucky enough to have a kind and enthusiastic (not to mention patient!) audience for a number of years now. I began writing to cope with my numerous chronic illnesses, but I carried on because the small worlds I created seemed to help some of you with your own struggles, or at least gave you a respite from daily life.

There's no "real job" out there for me, but I would very much like to support myself financially through my writing. With your help, I can continue creating all these escapist fantasies you beautiful people love.

Right here on Patreon, you can sponsor my writerly witchcraft by signing up to pledge $1 (or more) every month. Your donation will aid me with my medical bills and keep me thoroughly encouraged. A long-term goal of mine is to pay my beta editors for the invaluable assistance they give me.

My stories will still be free to read on AO3. But should you choose to become my patron, you'll see a charge to your credit card or Paypal on the 1st of each month. You can donate as much or as little as you like. I'll appreciate your support all the same!

I'm opting to take donations monthly, so I'm still supported if don't post for a while – if I'm too sick and need time to recover – or, more likely: if I'm working on something BIG for you to enjoy.

Even if you don't have the funds to give right now – truly, the most valuable gift you can offer is your dedication to reading my stories, sharing them with other people, and hitting the kudos button. Your comments and ongoing encouragement are the very things that keep me writing with unstoppable passion, and I promise I will make cool stuff for you to enjoy for as long as I'm able.

Disclaimer: Any money made from this Patreon is not intended as direct payment for fanworks. I believe my supporters are here because, first and foremost, they wish to perpetuate my existence as a person, being aware that during my healthy periods, my time will be spent creating things they may enjoy. In my ideal future, this could potentially include original work.
