So here's the thing:

I'm a writer. (From Norway)

I write gay, paranormal, erotic romance novels and I've already started my journey and have a handful of ebooks available on Amazon and Siren-Bookstrand. I've thought about getting a Patreon page for a long time now, if I should or shouldn't take that step. In the end though, it has boiled down to this - I love what I do and my biggest dream in this life is to one day be able to write full-time.

I love playing with stereotypes and my favorite characters are the weird ones (especially if they're the good kind of weird). I also like pairing up my weirdest ones with the more restrained characters, because I do love that mix and no matter how restrained or proper a character may appear to be, the right guy will bring out so much more. If those same guys are shapeshifters, vampires or some other supernatural being, that opens up a world of possibilities.

As you can probably imagine, writing a book takes a lot of work. It takes time and effort and dedication (not just because you have to give yourself fully to the story, but because of other stories that also want to be written right now). Needless to say, I have ideas that will keep me busy for years and more ideas keep coming. I also want to keep growing as an author and improve my worldbuilding skills to make my stories as alive as possible.

I've been a writer for some years now and it's been a bumpy ride. I had a publishing company go under on me, which was a huge blow and made my motivation drop, but I was still an author and I've worked hard to get back in the game. That also include trying to have some of the books I had with that company republished. In the end this has pushed me to try my hand at selfpublishing, a new and scary chapter in my life, but with some help and encouragement, I know I can make this work.

Hopefully you will want to help me out and know that just the smallest amount means the world to me and will help keep me going as I pursue my goal in life, to be the author I aim to be.
