About Jo Oram

Hi, I'm Jo and I'm an author of fantasy novels and other general escapist nonsense. I'm happiest when I'm writing and love it when other people follow me down my rabbit hole. What could be more exciting than battling with hordes of monsters or escaping from a lost island inhabited with supernatural beings?

The answer is not 10 hours of data entry.

Unfortunately, I can't spend all my time in fantasy worlds because my landlord doesn't accept fictional money. Sadly, real world jobs use real world time and energy, barely leaving enough for you to make dinner and have a shower before you collapse into a fitful sleep, your dreams haunted by the characters you cruelly abandoned in a crumbling ruin, surrounded by enemies who will kill them on sight.

To make it worse, data entry is hardly the most inspiring of activities and stories don't often inspire themselves. If you want to create convincing characters, it helps to know what people are really like. If you want to write realistic dialogue, speaking to real humans is a good idea. Unless you want to write a story about someone trapped in a small office, you might want to go outside.

I know I do. I’ve heard it’s fun out there.

And that’s why I’m here. By becoming a patron, you’ll be supporting me in my madness and in return, I will share that madness with you in the form of short stories, draft chapters and other goodies that might never otherwise see the light of day.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and (hopefully) for becoming my patron.
