Hi, I'm Stacey. I write sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. When I'm not doing that I blog about storytelling, pop culture, and storytelling through the lens of pop culture.
My intention in making art, no matter the medium, is to give people a bit of a break. Let them escape to a world where the girl gets the girl, the princess becomes king, and monsters are real but are mostly your bros. Life is hard; hug a werewolf .
Current projects include:
- Hug Your Local Werewolf - A serialised urban fantasy story.
- A For Writers series of blog posts that ask, "what can writers learn from x?" where x is a popular movie, book, or show.
- A sporadic series of queerified twisted fairytales.
- A bunch of WIPs (access to which is available as a Patreon exclusive).
I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in June of 2016. Since then I've had two surgeries, developed chronic pain, and have had to stop work. I've gone from a full-time web dev salary to fortnightly welfare payments, sporadic freelance work, and occasional art commissions.
Which is where Patreon comes in.
I've been writing as long as I can remember. Fiction fascinates me, both as a reader but also as a nerd. I enjoy pulling things apart to see how they work; stories are no different.
Through Patreon, I can do what I've always done—write my stories and dissect other peoples'—but now I can do it and have it help pay my rent. My financial situation isn't sustainable right now. I'm hoping Patreon can help me turn that around.
If you made it this far, thanks so much for reading. If you've decided to become a patron, welcome! I'm super happy to have you :)
