In 2010, I drove halfway across the US to a research institute and spent 2 days taking tests.  The test results said, I should go into writing, editing, or disaster management.  Turns out the science was right.

I love stories.  Writing them, editing them, reading them. And, as the writer whose career started with science, it should come as no surprise that I love writing science fantasy.

Six years spent as managing editor of a literary magazine confirmed I loved editing as much as I love writing.  But the surprising part is that I adore everything about the business side of creative careers. Most of my creative friends look nauseous when the words "marketing" or "book-keeping" come up, and I'm all, "Tell me more."  I've built my career in that unique Bermuda triangle of writing, editing, & businessing.

This Patreon is set up to fund scholarships to my Group Authorpreneurship Coaching Program. I help 3-6 writers over the course of four months.  We focus on writing, and the complicated & often mystifying business of publishing, but, most importantly, we build a support community.

Patreon is where I'll share fiction work moving forward. (Unless a publisher is paying me, of course.) It's also the place I'm:

  • Setting up my Authorpreneurship Tip Vault
  • Expanding my on-line writing community through virtual co-working & write-ins
  • Leading a virtual critique group
  • & sharing super-secret surprises only for Patrons

Thank you for helping me connect story tellers and give them the tools they need to get their stories into the world, and, thank you for becoming a part of my story.

When we reach this goal I'll share with you the time I ventured into the land of robot poetry. It was a weird moment for me too...
