Who Am I?

I am a writer and gamer. For as long as I could remember, I have had a real passion for reading comic books and making people laugh. I loved these wild stories with pictures that would just bring me into my own world (often getting me into trouble at school and home) But I could never find the perfect blending of the Eastern style and Western Style books and comic books that I so craved. Enter the  Hell's Gate Book Series   and my collection of  audiobooks . Most of my work embraces the two cultures, bringing them together in harmony.  I was raised in both Chinese and Japanese culture by a Chinese Step-father. I would sit and listen as I would draw inspiration from his folklore stories and his equal love for Japanese culture.  And so, with his memory in mind, I create my vision of a perfectly balanced universe of Eastern and Western cultures, philosophies, and folklore. 

Why Patreon? 

As one that has struggled with high functioning Autism her entire life, you can imagine what it's like to explain myself constantly. I once had a manager in the same sentence say, 'You have a mind like no other and your creativity and ability to think outside of the box is amazing. Now please, keep that to yourself.' I am often overworked and underpaid and finally decided to take the plunge and devote myself to my passions. I work 60+ hours a week and would love to devote all of my time to my craft instead to share with all of you. 


Illustrating my worlds through film, audiobooks, and creating stories are my one true happy place. I don't know what meditation is, but I think I can understand it. When I create audio stories, draw, or write I'm lost to them for hours on end. And I want to share my creations with all of you. You can find examples of my other projects such as podcasts here. As demand for my time and writing has increased, my full-time job has turned into part-time pay as I have been taking more time to complete my projects. It's quickly depleting all of my earnings and savings. This is where all of you come in! 

What I'm currently doing is not the most conventional approach─ I try to release pretty much all of my artistic content for free: the podcasts, comics, audiobooks on my site, wherever.

I like to do this because not everybody wants to buy it─ and that's OK! It's yours, it's everybody's─ take it, and you can share.

I don't expect much until you see my level of dedication to my work, which is why I list all of it on here.  Pledge as little or as much as you like to the cause! 

By subscribing to me on Patreon, you instantly become a patron of my work. 

Which leads to many great things for both you and me: (cue happy love song and touching butts...er, I mean hands.)

  1. The more support I receive, the more time I can set aside to provide you with comics, books, monthly podcasts, and audiobooks.
  2. I will send exclusive patrons ONLY behind the scenes of each work in progress they choose to fund, and early access to the films and books.
  3. Highest levels of support will get access to my art as you watch me create and interact. This also includes a personalized audiobook and story─ original concepts and works from me and getting to come onset to our films. You also get a first release, personalized work, and private Skype chats. 
  4. From time to time, I will be adding new rewards at various levels, as inspiration for new ideas strike.

So, there you have it! The more the pledge, the more you get. Including many things such as a personalized comics, signed artwork, audiobooks, private hangout chats or skype, early access to releases, and more!

Goals
$55 of $2,000 per month
Hell's Gate is a book/comic series that I am currently working on and hopefully finish the final book by the end of 2018. This is a novel series being turned into an audiobook and I currently have books 1 and 2 written. The story follows Celeste, a girl adopted out of Tokyo by an American family. As an adult, she views herself as cursed. How do you convince yourself that you can defy what destiny has laid out for you? Love, betrayal, war between the realms─ Celeste must fight it all.

I combined all of my research (including 2 trips to Japan) interviewed several penpals and friends and spent hours curled up to Japanese and Chinese legends. I weaved the tales and folklore into the story and added my own spin to these classics to create a unique blend I hope that you can enjoy. You can learn about more of my journey here.


For my Patrons and supporters, I want to offer a full character bio, artbook, and fully illustrated books of all the folklore included in my graphic novel and books! (think of them like little graphic novellas with story and pictures)

I would also like to offer an audiobook version of the story for those that don't have time to read.The larger the patronage, the more, of course, I can take time off to give. 

Thank you, thank you, to anyone and everyone that is generous and kind enough to help see my vision through to the end!
