I'm a writer and game designer for stuff like The Walk Game with Naomi Alderman and Six to Start, The Maester's Path for HBO's Game of Thrones, and the ARG Perplex City. I've written a book called A Creator's Guide to Transmedia Storytelling. I do a lot of speaking about storytelling and the future of media. I've done some self-publishing, too -- most notablyThe Daring Adventures of Captain Lucy Smokeheart, an episodic pirate serial and treasure hunt.

My head is full of worlds and people that don't exist. I hope you'll enjoy sharing them with me.

I'm full of worlds and people and beautiful words. I want to show them to you.

I write stories. Sometimes they're artful or dark, like Sinterklaas or Shiva's Mother. Sometimes goofy or funny or gonzo, like The Daring Adventures of Captain Lucy Smokeheart. Go on, go ahead and read them. See if you like what you're getting into.

This Patreon is a little like a short-story-a-month club. For $1 a month, you'll get one piece of short fiction from me every month. (And if you don't like it, you can ask for your dollar back!) I'm hoping to build a sustainable audience so I can focus more time and energy on original work.

If my Patreon base grows big enough, I may venture into writing longer works, too -- novellas, say, or perhaps a serial novel. I'm not sure where this thing is going yet. It's a gonzo experiment, as is my way, and I'm plenty excited and nervous. Try it out with me?
