I'm incredibly grateful to be a multi-media author/editor whose credits include online projects for the National Geographic Channel, graphic novel adaptations of Ted Dekker's bestselling Circle and Lost Books series, creating The Sorrow anti-child-abuse comic and short story anthologies, ghost writing on the legendary Steve Roper & Mike Nomad newspaper strip, editing several volumes of TokyoPop/Zondervan's Manga Bible, creating The Realm Unseen interactive novel & audiobook and the critically-acclaimed, runaway slave hero PistolFist (*voted one of the Top 1O Black Comic Heroes of All-Time).

I'm also a disabled diabetic, which can make the practical side of writing incredibly difficult.  Although I suffer from severe arthritis and chronic, debilitating bone, joint and muscle pain, I do what I can to help my wife, our kids and community.  I have quite a few creative projects — comics, short stories, novels and screenplays — in the works, but I really need help to make them a reality.  I have very limited use of my hands (missing bones, etc) and while I've used excellent dictation programs, writing creative fiction — with lots of emotion and weird sci-fi/fantasy words — is incredibly difficult.  It's my hope that, with your help, I'll be able to hire at least a part-time assistant and become much more productive.  I also hope to pay artists to complete my comic and other scripts.     

In return for your support, I'll be posting on Patreon frequently, giving you sneak peeks and releasing things here first.  I also want to share all I've learned in the last 15+ years as a professional writer.  Especially the stuff I either learned the hard way or simply wish someone had shared with me.  To that end, I'll be posting writing resources & videos based on my experience with writing comics, adaptations, TV scripts, animation scripts, graphic novels, super-heroes, historical fiction, interactive stories, serials, pitching, self-publishing, promotion, time-management, creative innovation and the keys to a lasting career.  As a special Thank You to those who pledge $2O a month, I'll also be available as a Creative Consultant/Manuscript Editor &/or cover Layout Designer.

Goals
$55 of $450 per month
Although I have several comics in-the-works, reaching this goal will allow me to set deadlines and pay well-deserving artists and letterers to complete their work ASAP.  Patreon subscribers will be privy to all behind-the-scenes work the their generosity has made possible!
