Several years ago I began writing in earnest. All the while I waited tables in cafés and restaurants, worked as a nonprofit communications consultant, and volunteered as a creative writing mentor to schoolchildren.

I even considered going back to grad school for an MFA in Creative Writing, an MA in English, or my favorite in the Scottish universities, an MLitt (Master of Letters).

Forgoing paying tuition and leaving a day job I dabbled, like so many others with dreams and hobbies, in spurts and starts during the time when not being paid or taking care of others.

In time, a short story writing project of 100 short stories in 100 days turned into a self-published book. A Patreon page of gracious support for new, personal, and imaginative writing has led to a spin-off storytelling podcast called SECRET PASSAGES.

What began as a benefit for Patreon supporters to listen to short stories on-the-go inspired a love for audio storytelling. I want to thank all of the contributors for the support that keeps me going through creative endeavors.

Your support allows me to write regularly, to experiment with the creative process, and to communicate with a growing community of support. The goal with Patreon support is the same: to see a daydream turn into a reality and become a working storyteller.

If you contribute resources to this project then I can continue as a working writer and storyteller. Moreover, I can dedicate time to grow the podcast.

Contributors receive benefits straight to the email inbox.

Receive my "personal papers" of short fiction, poems, essays, parent musings, and travelogues. Also, there will be podcast bloopers and bonus episodes down the line.

From the previous writing project, I launched an email newsletter that releases monthly which includes my latest creative work as well as links to stories/movies/music that I am currently enjoying.

There are a lot of ways to spend time and money, but this way you join a community that loves stories that stretch the imagination.

By contributing to this project, you become a patron of storytelling and the creative process, but also of me.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out. Thanks for your support in any way you can give!
