About

Hi! Patreon is a way of everyday people becoming patrons of the arts with monthly donations.

Who is A.M. Davis?


I am a writer. I learned of Patreon through Rachel Havens. Ironically, I listened to her her father, Ricie Havens for years as I longed to be a kind of intergalactic Black hippie.

I have been a lover of authors since I began reading at the age of three or four, and I have been a writer since I was about eight years old. I sat cross-legged on my bed in my bedroom in the house that my family lived in on 68th Avenue, near International Way in Oakland, California. Back then, authors were my gods.

There are many compelling causes and situations tugging for your attention and yet, you have chosen to spend time looking at my page. I know that without readers, my writing is only half done.

And so I am grateful to every patron, every future reader of my work that has decided to join me on this leg of my journey. I will share glimpses of my novel with my patrons on a monthly basis.

This Book

I am currently writing a novel set in Oakland, CA.

The characters
are physicist, a poet, a real estate developer, and disgruntled civil servant who is also a reluctant psychic.

How I live

I wandered into living in a community of spiritual activists through Joanna Macy. I went to one of Joanna's sits in Berkeley California where I gave her my volume of poetry, We Have Always Been The Universe. Soon afterwards, she telephoned me and asked me to come for a visit. We drank tea and ate cookies. There, she told me that I must keep writing because the world needs storytellers.




My Writing,,, Who this book is for? Why I write this novel.





Why do I seek Patrons
?
Self care. New walking shoes. Rides home with Lyft late at night. Dental visits. Community health care plan with a holistic practitioner. New glasses.

Getting my work out. Travel to conferences to promote my work.

Not scraping by day to day. Not having my life come to a halt when the computer or the bicycle breaks down, or the keyboard has keys that stop working, or if I run out of medicinal herbs that keep me going.



  My creativity can look like...

Poetry (click on I am the Journey below). Art (see my avatar portrait and banner art at the top of the page). Re-envisioning the Work that Reconnects.

Goals
3 of 50 patrons
When I reach 50 patrons, I will release monthly passages of my work.
