Welcome to my Patreon page where I share my stories, research, photos, gardening tips, sketches, chicken adventures and recipes with the world. I live in beautiful Nova Scotia where you can’t drive more than an hour (42 miles; 67 kilometres) without reaching the ocean. This means I am surrounded by awesome beaches.

Writing is a passion for me, so I write every day. I often work on my fantasy novels, but I also write short stories. When I want to know a character better, I’ll write a character story or vignette staring them. What I uncover during these exercises often appears in the novels.

I am the author of The Castle Keepers series, which includes “Shadows in the Stone” and “Scattered Stones”. The third book in the series is “Revelation Stones”.

So, what is Patreon? I wondered about this myself until I came across an introductory video that explained it. A long time ago, nobility and aristocrats gained access to artists’ work by financially becoming part of their community. This meant painters had time to create wonderful works of art, musicians could eat while they mastered an instrument and writers could write those wonderful novels of old.

The aristocrats and nobility of history no longer exist, but that doesn’t mean what they started is lost. Anyone can take on their role as art patron and join an artist’s community to gain access to awesome stuff.

That’s where Patreon comes in. It connects the art patron with the artist.

My goals are simple: I want to write more and get my books into the hands of readers.

I’ve set up the benefits of joining my community to the best of my ability at this time. If better ideas arise, I’ll add them to the mix.

Goals

When I reach this amount, I will hire an artist to create an official map of The Land of Ath-o'Lea. I will use the map on my website, in my books and create posters from it to share with readers.
