Hi! I'm Katje and I write love stories of various shapes and colors.

Dragon shifters traveling the universe in a space jellyfish. 
Justiciars upholding galactic law who have to do their learning in stasis tanks.
The goddess of memory and Death teaming up to save the world.
The girl next door getting dropped into an alternate universe where dragons and phoenixes fly the skies of a country eerily similar to Tang dynasty China.
A city where the test to become a guardian is how well you can raise magic with music.

Stories that live somewhere in the intersections between science-fiction, fantasy, wuxia, and xianxia, but always involving love.

Love between friends, between family, between the chosen ones of our hearts. 

I write to provide a soft place to find hope. There's always going to be a happy ending where the good guys win and find love, however they define that love. 
The world might be harsh and politics unforgiving, with evil to push back and chaos to restrain, but people doing the right things for the right reasons will end up prevailing in the end, and it turns out that no one needs to sacrifice themselves or love to save the world. 

I write for the young girl who devoured book after book, looking for someone like her. The young girl who wanted, desperately, to know that a person like her could also be a princess, could also save the world, could also find a happily ever after.

I'm also a spoonie with an undiagnosed chronic illness, a cranky immune system, and a critical shortage of  spoons . Brain fog and extreme fatigue mean that I can no longer hold down a normal job, full time or otherwise.

Living costs money and so does self-publishing.
Right now, I live at home with my parents, but that's not a long-term option.
My goal is to be able to make enough to support myself and to pay for all the various bits that are required for self-publishing: editors (content & copy), formatting, and covers. 

What do you get if you support me?

Barring acts of the gods and major sickness (I very randomly came down with spontaneous mumps last year), I update weekly and it might be any of the following:

- chapters of my current WIP
- flash fiction inspired by tarot cards, dreams, or a random "what if".
- world-building posts (like the anatomy of the merfolk in Silenced)
- poetry
- Chinese culture trivia and puns

I also take suggestions and votes on what to do next. Discord server? Audio posts to go with the puns and trivia posts so you can see how things actually sound? There are a lot of possibilities swimming around. 

Join me on this journey? If nothing else, it promises to be a fun ride.

Thank you! You've given me the gift of seeing me and hyper-inflation of feels means that we're now talking about dorf-star levels of shining shining love. Yes, that's the scientific term for it. *nods*

Thank you! I have no adequate words. 
All my love and I will do you the favor of not offering you my first-born.

Request a story in any of my worlds involving any of my characters and I'll do my best to oblige.

Thank you for the inestimable honor and gift of your esteem. My love for you will be as the Long River, long (duh), deep, ever-changing-yet-ever-constant, and sufficient in power to carve through stone and call forth life. 


Character creation - name a character, give it a personality and vague background details, and I'll write 'em into one of my worlds of your choosing. Within reason, okay? No cyborg assassins in Estyria's world .... wait...that might be fun...  (likely short story format, but we'll see how far the prompt goes)
