That’s my mantra. I chant it everyday multiple times per day to remind myself that all good things start with a dream, but those dreams can only become reality by doing something about it!

Are you with me? Let's go on a FANTASTICAL Journey!!!

The first dream I ever had for myself was to be an author. I was maybe eight when I first started keeping a journal, writing down all my hearts desires and making up stories about princesses in distress waiting to be saved by her knight in shining armor. Yep, I was that little girl.

Writing had such a strong hold on me, it’s all I did. By high school, I was writing short stories and poems nonstop. I was going to grow up to be an author and write fiction for the world. Then an adult got their grubby little paws on me and told me I would never succeed as an author. That it was a pipe dream; impossible to achieve.

And I believed them…

I made the mistake of walking away from that dream for over 25 years. The great thing about dreams is they never really leave you. They stay with you always, waiting until you’re ready to fly. I’m flying, and I want to share this journey with the world.

If you’ve taken the time to stop by, I thank you. You’ve already supported my dream by taking a few minutes to see what this is all about. I’ll thank you even more if you read on just a bit farther.

Patreon is a wonderful platform designed for creative souls who have a dream. By joining me as a Patreon you are helping me fly even higher. Just look to the right, there's a wide range of magical tiers waiting to be claimed!

It is my dream to write full-time and to help other aspiring authors make their dreams come true too.

Be FIERCE...

Always DREAM…

Keep DOING…


I spend countless hours imagining new adventures and far off worlds for which to travel. And I want to share those adventures with the world. I don’t stop with dreaming. I take those dreams and turn them into writing adventures, mostly science fiction and fantasy. My first love is epic fantasies, but I can’t resist a good apocalyptic and dystopian fiction story. I also love a good horror and space adventures, too!

I maintain a strong online presence on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I also keep my website up to date with all the latest and greatest adventures I have up my sleeves. Moving forward, I plan on using Pateon to share more about my writing. Stick around and join me on this writing adventure. I promise we'll have fun!

My dream doesn’t stop with writing. I want to help others realize their dreams too! I have spent years working on my craft and muddled through much of this progress in private. It’s been a long tedious journey; one that could've been executed faster had I relied on a community of writers to get through it. Recently, I began developing workshops on the craft of writing fiction and on the business of writing to teach at local universities, conferences and writer’s studios throughout Florida. And I’m excited to share this knowledge with you too.

As a Patreon, you’ll get so much more than adventurous sci-fi/fantasy reading material. You’ll also receive valuable craft development articles and tools to help you succeed in your own writing journey.


I considered crowdfunding via Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, but my heart led me here instead. Why? Because I’m not creating one book and then I’m done, I’ve got years’ worth of ideas and stories to tell and one event will not make that happen. I also want this to be a constant place of learning and as long as you're a Patreon, the value will keep coming. Creating for a living can bring a lot of uncertainty. As an indie author, I get all the bills. To keep the creative juices flowing and new work published, I need collaborators, supporters, Patreons, people just like you who:
—appreciate the time investment that goes into creating the free material and would like to keep it coming,
—love to read and seek knowledge
—who want to be involved in keeping the creativity flow alive,
—are family, friends and fans who love me and my work and want to see more of it out in the world for all to read.

I will set goals for new monthly contribution milestones. The first goal will be achieved when I reach $100/month in support! 


I’m so glad you asked. I’ve chosen the path of independent publication which means most (if not all) of the cost of publication is my sole responsibility. I am 100% greenlighting my work of fiction! This includes: editing, proofreading, interior design, cover art & design, publicity, marketing, advertising, printing, software, website and email subscriptions, and a whole lot of other little fees that add up to be a lot of money. At some point (it will be a future goal) I want to establish an online training program for aspiring authors to help them on their journey. This platform will be the start of that program and when the time is right, I'll take it to the next level. 

Thank you for joining me on this magical adventure!

Goals
0 of 10 patrons
When I reach 10 Patrons, I'll publish TWO flash fiction drabbles per month. What's a drabble you ask? A drabble is a 100 word story. They are extremely challenging to write but a whole lot of fun. Flash fiction is a great way to work on your craft. They're short and sweet! This will also give you, the reader, a chance to practice critiquing others work because I will ask for your honest feedback!
