About

I'm K. C. Alexander, and I'm a genderqueer, mostly human author of science fiction and fantasy. I love what I do with every fiber of my souleating-yet-benevolent outer god being.

I am an #OwnVoices author. I live with Type II Bipolar, "raging" (according to my therapist) ADHD, and an extra topping of C-PTSD. I rage a lot, even when I'm quiet. Well, my wheelhouse is rage in genera—and I direct it in service of sexual equality, gender parity, and mental health awareness; in ambulatory meatsack life and always, always in books.

My stories feature characters who fall into the shades of gray between archetypes. I specialize in transhumanism with serious attitude ( NECROTECH and NANOSHOCK), in all things Mass Effect (Mass Effect: Andromeda: Nexus Uprising), and the utter annihilation of gendered requirements. I have a penchant for profanity, and most of all, for stories and characters that pull no punches. The concepts that speak to me most are those constantly questioned by the majority: relationships, morality, identity, rage... Lots of rage. Did I mention the rage? There's some rage. ...Just sayin'.


Why Patreon?

Real talk time: As of 2020, I have been trying for four years to find a job willing to hire me. Disability is a bitch of a thing to work with, and so far, I'm struggling. Patreon is my only income, the whole reason I can keep writing, and it's because of badass humans like you that I am still doing that.

Hard as it is, I refuse to let it get me down. There's more than one way to set fire to The Man.

Our society needs art more than ever, and artists need to be able to make a living doing it. In this current culture of hatred, ignorance, and repression, it's going to be up to us to keep all our voices alive.

Please help me stay loud? And also my service dog fed.

Goals
$546.43 of $600 per month
This is the first step! The first milestone where I can pick up a little breathing room. 

We reach this, and I will share a digital version of commissioned sticker art with all tiers.

In the spirit of transparency, here's what I can do with this income: 
  • contribute to groceries
  • pay my share of utilities
  • cover my own monthly expenses
