Hey all, Dee here!  I'm finally taking the plunge and putting a book out there into the wide, wide world!  I've been writing bits and pieces of this story for months now but was never sure what I was going to do with them; in the end, I was inspired by three good friends of mine who have published their books, and am now adding original fiction to my collection of fannish writings.

Thanks for stopping by my Patreon page!  I write because I love watching a story come to life, because there are so many untold stories out there just waiting to be shared.  I write because I have a great love of cute, healthy relationships with plenty of humor and adorable tropes, and I write because I like uplifting stories that make me feel happy when I read them. 

Of course, the most important part of any character driven story is the characters, so let's meet them!

**

Krysta Adler (“Just Krys,” she says with a pained expression) spends the majority of her time managing Books & Blends, the cozy, chaotic Portland bookshop she co-owns with her three best friends, Veronica, Jen, and Aiko, and scowling at their good-natured short jokes. When the quartet, also members of popular local band Butane Jane, aren’t rehearsing and prepping for a weekend gig or two, Krys can be found playing video games or out and about downtown, usually in search of a new place to eat, given her questionable skills in the kitchen. Second oldest of four sisters, she is fiercely committed to living life on no one’s terms but her own, and Krys guards her independence like a dragon guards its hoard, unwilling to be beholden to anyone for anything.

Senator Maximilian Kallan (“Oh, no, please just call me Max,” he chuckles) is second in line to inherit his family business, Kallan’s, the hugely popular, wildly successful chain of department stores - now superstores - founded by his grandfather in 1952. Despite his famous last name and well-known family, he’s made a point of pursuing a life of his own, content to leave the business dealings to his mother and older sister. After eight years serving as a commissioned officer in the Marine Corps, he launched a successful foray into politics in 2010, taking office in January 2011. Keenly aware of his duties to constituents and country, he’s most often found working, running, and studiously avoiding the gossip sites hellbent on breathlessly covering “the city’s most eligible Senator” and his every move.

Our two charming main characters are joined by a colorful supporting cast, and find themselves in a variety of situations and growing closer, despite the difficulties in trying to coordinate two very separate lives.  Over the course of development of the book, you'll be privy to Patreon-exclusive ficlets, backstories, Q&As with characters, following the story as it travels from idea to an actual in-your-hands novel.

With your support, I won't have to spend all my free time transcribing, leaving me more time to write and to create additional content for you lovely patrons!  If you find my stories worthy of your support, I'd love to share this slightly nerve-wracking adventure with you.  <3
