The Story Begins...

  • About Erin
Fantasy has always been my bread and butter and helped me through difficult times. It's no surprise, then, that my stories revolve around enchanted forests, mythical creatures, snarling werewolves, and the supernatural. I want to share my passion, and my writing, with others, so I'm taking a chance and welcoming you to join me in my literary journey. 

By day, I work as a proofreader and volunteer for many groups. I'm a Co-Director of The Writers' Rooms, a community-sourced organization focused on providing a safe environment for writers. I'm the communications manager of The Iowa Writers' House, an organization devoted to helping writers with their craft, career, and community. I volunteer for RARE, a rescue raptor center. And I write for Whimsical Whiskers, a small business that sells hand-made stuffed animals and stories to accompany them. And, of course, I'm a dedicated bird mother to 7 birds, which you'll hear about more often than not. 

By night, I type away to the glow of my computer screen, usually with a bird or two trying to nibble at my keyboard. I currently have several works in progress, including an LGBT YA Fantasy, a medieval fantasy, and an urban fantasy series with a co-author. 

  • Patreon
I'm using Patreon to reach out to people to entertain and inspire. Every month I intend to release one patron-paid story, as well as free little pieces for you all to enjoy. Some stories will be standalone, while others will be part of serials, which I will discuss below. The money received from Patreon will go towards upkeep and purchase of equipment that allows me to produce my work and share it with you. 

But I don't expect you to join without sampling some of my writing. You can check out a couple free stories on my patreon page, or several others on wattpad found here.

My goal with Patreon is to both help inspire and also get my name out there. It's hard to get your foot in the door, and sometimes writing an inspirational piece and having someone share it goes a long way. My goal, and passion, is to be a published author, and this will bring me one step closer. I also want to help people realize that, yes, this is possible. My favorite thing to hear is that my stories have inspired someone to start writing. If that's the case, let me know. Let's walk this journey together.

  • The Stories
Fantasy Shorts: These stories will typically be fantasy and urban fantasy based. Some will be created from prompts or maybe the random rambling dream. Polls will be created so that patrons can also suggest what they want to see. 
 
The Purple Door District: This is an urban fantasy series set in the Purple Door District, a safe-zone for supernatural creatures. They'll follow the journeys of different characters, explore their lives, as well as the dangers and adventures that ensue. Werewolves, vampires, werebirds, felines, witches, and fae...you can find them all here. The world in which this is set was created with my co-author, AE Kellar. The series arcs will be set up as novellas, with a chapter released each month. There will likely be some individual PDD short stories as well. 

Literary Lessons: Periodically I'll release either blogs or videos discussing writing tips. These might serve as free elements or will be in place of a short story if Patrons want help with their own writing. 

Commissioned: Commissioned stories are written at certain tier levels. When you reach this level, I'll e-mail you and you can provide me with a topic/character/theme, etc that you would like me to write for you. This is a way for me to connect with my readers and give them a piece that sparks their interest. 

Note* I retain the right to publish all stories on Patreon unless otherwise specified by the patron. I reserve the right to refuse certain topics, which I will provide to the patron. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I hope we can walk this journey together!
