About

I write fiction with queer, mentally ill, disabled, and/or neurodiverse characters. ( See my AO3 for characters whose names you already know.) 

A lot of people seem to really enjoy and connect with the things I write. It’s profoundly refreshing to be able to offer something of value and meaning to the world while neither exploiting nor being exploited.

It’s also super validating, since the characters’ experiences are heavily informed by my own. I aim for emotional realism. Death of the author and all that, but still — if you’ve felt validation or catharsis while reading my work, that’s me. The very tired human being on the other side of the keyboard, sifting through tough memories and tougher feelings (often during tough times) to alchemize fiction that I offer for free, for whatever your needs from it might be.

If you become my patron, you’re helping this very tired human being stay alive and safe. Being alive and safe are pretty damn helpful for writing more.

Writing is what I’m here for, after all. Please help me to keep doing it, and doing it more in the future.

You’ve validated my existence and bolstered my confidence. I feel like this could actually work now. This makes me want to write no matter how rough the rest of my very haphazard life situation is.
