I often say that I am a bard - my major powers lie in inspiration, weaving spells with words, maybe releasing just the right song at just the right moment. Bards have a tendency to know a little bit about a lot of things. We tend to have a lot going on at any given time. I am definitely a juggler, but instead of flaming swords, I juggle projects and communities and passions. 

It is almost impossible for me to have a single place where all those things come together. Every six months or so I write a post on my blog about what I am up to and it always feels too long and it always reminds me that I am a maniac. I always promise myself to cut back. I always fail. 

If you're a Wolfenati (Wolfenatum?), you will know me as the WolfMom, the would-be driver of a mad comet of possibility, desperately trying to maintain some kind of structure to something gloriously out of my control. It's a wild ride. I try to stay on top of merch and book orders, try to plan for the future, work on various Wolfenoot related projects. Mostly I just hold on and hope for the best. ;)  

If you're a Critter, you will know me as the person behind the Secret Santa and Critter Gifting. I am fortunate to have an awesome team there who manages most of the day to day running for me, so I only have to think about the exchanges I run, the website, the twitter, and creating channels for the wonderful possibilities of this epic community of generosity. 

If you've come to me through The Patchwork Raven you will know me as an editor, a purveyor of beautiful books, beautiful stories, wonderful bits of art finding their way to your postbox. Raven is right: I gather shiny stories and collect them together, little gems of narrative and bits of art I have picked up in the park. 

But before all of this, I was a writer. Sometimes I forget that that was my first love. It is like breathing. I make up stories in my car, and then never get around to writing them down. Instead, I feed my writer fire by knocking out hot takes on Facebook or on my blog. I keep promising to write more. Maybe I eventually will. 

I write stories about magic, gods, the things just behind the veil most people never notice. I write fantasy, occasional sci-fi. Sometimes I write realism. Sometimes it gets a bit dark in this head of mine. My prose can be poetic, and my (rare) poetry can be quite narrative. People frequently seem moved by the stories I weave. I hope, if you're reading this, you are (or will be) one of those people. 

Supporting me here means supporting all of these things, but mostly that first love, that writing bug I have never escaped. I leave storybits here like fragments of the storm in my head for you to pick over and wonder at. You may not always get the whole story, but hopefully the pieces you find will be, at least, intriguing. And maybe a bit inspirational.

When we hit this, I'll do a stream of me playing a game chosen by YOU. I am not a gamer, so this should be hilarious. ;)
