Who am I?

Good question. Very existential. Oh, you mean me?

I'm Joseph Russell - full-time Engineering student, part-time writer, part-time modder. I run a website and a Facebook page which I semi-regularly update with free short stories for you to cast your eyes over, and I'm also an active modder on the Skyrim Nexus, where I produce content that includes Unofficial Updates for the Creation Club DLC, Writing Patches to polish up the text content in other popular mods, and collaborations with Mihailmods that feature my writing, scripting and voice-acting in new quests and worldspaces.

What am I up to next? 

I'm currently working on a new custom-voiced follower mod for Skyrim Special Edition called "Lucien Flavius", introducing a new Imperial scholar/musician with a quick wit and an endless fascination with the world around him. When you first meet him, he's a timid sort of chap, more likely to wet himself and run in the face of a dragon than charge, roaring, into battle. As you encourage and train him, however, he'll grow into a hero in his own right, with his own morals and beliefs. Treat him right and he'll be a stalwart companion who'll journey with you to Solstheim, Bruma, Elsweyr, Falskaar and beyond. Treat him wrong and you'll find yourself with a rival who'll do whatever it takes to keep Skyrim safe from you.

In terms of writing, my next novel will be a grounded medieval fantasy called "The Story Breaker". I'm keeping the details of it under wraps for now, but you can expect more short stories on my website in the meantime. Hopefully, I'll have news to share soon!

What am I doing on Patreon?

I'd like to make it clear that my content on the Skyrim Nexus and my website (barring the books, which cost money to print and distribute) will always remain free. I do it because I love to create and want to share that with as many people as possible. As a rule, you should never, ever feel obliged to support me financially and it'd be against the spirit of modding and storytelling if you felt that way.

That said, a few people have been kind enough to express an interest in supporting my work, and like many students in the UK, I have debt looming over me, rent that needs paying, food that needs buying, etc. etc. I'm certain I'll survive and keep modding and writing whatever comes my way, but please know that if you do decide to contribute through Patreon, the Nexus or simply by buying my latest book, you're really helping me out and I'll be eternally grateful.

Monies aside, the feedback and support I've had from the community so far has been humbling. If you don't fancy supporting me here (and again, I really don't expect you to!), it'd mean the world to me if you'd care to drop me an endorsement or a friendly comment on the Nexus, or a like on my Facebook page. Seriously, thank you guys.
