I've always tried to see the magic in the world, and that's what I want to bring to my readers. In my realistic fiction, I try to root out the moments that feel magical in our everyday lives. In my fantasy work, I try to bring a little extra magic into the world. 

I'm just getting started as a writer, and writing is one of those careers that involves a lot of heavy-duty work up-front before you make so much as a penny. I thought it would be a good idea to start a patreon to help balance out some of that un-paid work, and later, to make sure that my early supporters get the best bonuses.

I'm also counting on you to let me know when I'm barking up the wrong tree. If what I'm creating isn't bringing you a little magic, then I'm doing something wrong. You're the only ones who can tell me if I'm hitting that goal.

Thank you so much for being interested in my work, and for becoming a patron. Your support helps me keep finding the magic.

Goals

Twenty fans dedicated enough to commit a monthly contribution to my work is a nice benchmark. When we reach this goal, I will do a live, hour long Google hangout with all my patrons, and write a short story exclusively available to patrons
