Hey! My name is Kaitlyn Abdou, but I like to go by Katie!

First of all, thank you for coming to check out my Patreon page!! My writing journey only started in February of 2018, but it has been a whirlwind of an experience! I have nearly completed the first draft of my queer historical fantasy, The Daffodil Witch. It has already been requested by one publisher, so I am very excited about life at the moment!

As I embark on the revision and reworking process, I invite you to join me to share in the experience! Of course, a lot of my time and money has already gone into this project. I bought a domain name and website, I have bought artwork and promotional material, and I will continue to do so! The idea for this Patreon is for me to help afford the cost of promotion even as I am writing, but even more so, it's my hope to form a strong, bonded community of readers!

By becoming a patron of mine, you will be supporting me in my childhood dream of becoming a published author! It was something I had given up on long ago as unrealistic, but a sudden wave of inspiration and hope has lifted me and taken me on this journey so far, and I am so excited to see where I can go from here!

What do I write?

I write queer fiction. I am currently working on The Daffodil Witch. It is an m/m romance set in the Victorian era, with a fantasy twist! I am also working on a serial called Pride and Prejudice: A Queer Love Story that has Nothing to do with Jane Austen. It's a fun piece, but one that is very important to me! I am asexual, and aces just don't get enough media coverage! When we do, it's in the form of characters like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, who turns us into a socially awkward stereotype! It is my goal to represent asexuals in a different light. We can be sexy, we can be suave.



Pride and Prejudice is the story of an asexual dom who falls for a young man with a voracious sexual appetite and their struggle to find balance and happiness together!

The Daffodil Witch is planned to be a trilogy, but I already have ideas for at least ONE side novella centering around one of the side characters!


The Daffodil Witch

Europe, 1847.

Growing up among the expansive daffodil fields of English territory, Île de Jonquille, Oliver Montgomery is desperate to be granted an apprenticeship in the art of magic by the infamous and magnificent Wizard Beaumont.

But, dismissed by his idol, Oliver instead finds himself entranced by a powerful sorceress. Swept up in a whirlwind of intrigue, illicit affairs, and dangerous black magic, an unexpected connection begins to blossom—but can he trust these feelings?

Clinging to the last threads of hope, Oliver must decide who to trust before he loses himself to the darkness, or his blind loyalty leads to unspeakable events that could change the course of history.
