About Carissa Magras

This Patreon page was created for friends and family who wanted an easy way to support me in my endeavors and be a part of this story in the making.

Writing is my way of giving back to the world; of giving to children the gift authors gave me growing up: escape, empathy, and hope.

Because of you, I am able to write more and reach more kids. Thank you!


I write because books saved my life as a child. They gave me an escape from life and kept hope alive until I found my way out of the darkness.

Growing up with a sociopathic dad who chose abuse over love, I survived childhood through reading and writing. I hid in plain sight, finding solace in the shadows of a book. They lit a spark of light in my soul which refused to give up and give in, despite the life I endured behind closed doors.

And so with every story I now write, my purpose is to pass on that same gift I was given; to show children that no matter where they come from, what they look like, or what they've been through, these things do not define who they are. They are more than their circumstances, traumatic experiences, and past events.

So I created this Patreon page to make a way for friends and family to be a part of this vision. Your patronage allows me to spend less time on side-jobs and more time, focus, and energy on writing. Whether it’s $1 or $100, or something in between, no gift is too small or insignificant.

If you believe:
  • in the power of books...
  • in the power of people...
  • and that what we need now more than ever is more empathy, more hope, and more love...
- then please consider joining me as a Patron today.

I believe our mistakes, failures, and broken parts are what make us works of art and that each of us is a masterpiece-in-progress.

I believe there is great power in small flickers of hope, light, and love.

I also believe books change lives and every person – especially children – contains the capacity to change the world for the better.

And more than anything, I believe the world is a better place because you’re in it. So thank you for being... being you, being here, being a part of this journey.

"We can't change the first few chapters of our life, but we can take back the pen and write our greatest story."
Goals
$173.43 of $1,000 per month
$1,000 a month allows me to spend less time on side-work and more of my focus, time, and energy on the work of writing, editing, and publishing - which means getting my books into the hands and hearts of young readers much sooner.
