Let's create stories that give young people the hope, strength, and sense of personal power they need to make it through one more day in a tough world.

They need that more than ever, and we can give it to them.

Get the stories and fund new ones while knowing that you're helping to make a positive difference in the lives of young adults.

JOIN OTHER SUPPORTERS TODAY


I am a lifelong reader and writer who knows how powerful stories can be. I want young adult readers to see themselves in my stories and know they're not alone in the world. More than that, I want to empower them through fiction to overcome whatever they are struggling with in their lives, even (or maybe especially) the really tough stuff that they shouldn't have to be dealing with.

Discrimination. Bullying. Sexual assault. Stuff like that.

I want to build a community of readers, writers, and dreamers who share my dream of helping young people feel less alone and empowering them to live life on their own terms. Building a community of at least 1,400 members will allow me to write full-time, turning this dream into a reality that can change the lives of millions of teenagers and young adults.

And YOU will be helping bring these stories to the world with your membership fees! 

Stories change young lives. Be part of that today.

Patreon is a monthly membership that pays my salary, allowing me not only to write but to purchase the equipment and services I need to get empowering stories into the hands of the readers who need them most.

Your membership comes with access to a private Facebook group where you can discuss books, writing, and issues close to your heart, early access to new work, and exclusive content that didn't make it into the stories I'm working on.  Higher level memberships also get discounts on published works.

Join me today and let's change the world together!

Here's what you'll be supporting.


1. REALISTIC YOUNG ADULT NOVELS LIKE REINVENTING HANNAH



The first of many novels I plan to write for young adults, Reinventing Hannah is about a 16-year-old girl who struggles to reinvent herself positively after she is raped at the kind of party no one expected her to ever go to. Throughout the book, Hannah not only deals with the aftermath of sexual assault but struggles to decide if she's going to be the quiet girl her friends call Mouse or stand up for herself even when the people she cares about most disapprove.

2.  EXPANDING TRANSGENDER REPRESENTATION IN THE WORLD OF YOUNG ADULT LITERATURE
I
'm transgender. I don't always write about trans issues, but questions of identity -- including sexual identity -- feature prominently in my work, and in addition, I think I'm a strong role model for other transgender people because I'm open about who I am.

That's important. 41% of transgender youth attempt suicide, partially because there aren't enough trans voices out there and they feel different and alone and unable to be who they are.

3. POSITIVE MESSAGES AND DEPICTIONS OF YOUNG ADULT LIFE
I love fantasy -- like most of the modern world, I'm a Harry Potter addict. But I choose to create realistic stories instead because I think today's kids need them.

My stories not only deal with tough issues, but show kids interacting with parents and other adult role models positively and doing positive things to contribute to their world despite their own difficult circumstances. I think this helps inspire young people, and your support will help me get that message out there.

All memberships come with access to a wide variety of extras like scenes that didn't make it into completed work and access to all drafts of work so that you can see the process!
