About K Tempest Bradford

Welcome to The Tempestuous Salon. I'm your hostess K. Tempest Bradford. I write Afrofuturist and AfroRetroFuturist fiction for kids and adults that reflects my multiple identities, including my Blackness and Queerness. Beyond that, I'm an editor, podcaster, media critic, and writing teacher doing my best to change the culture for the better.

You can find my full bibliography and biography over on my website.

If you choose to support me, you become a member of the Salon and gain access to sneak peeks into my creative process. You also become part of a community of writers, artists, musicians, crafters, activists, and other creative folks. Even if you only consider yourself a consumer of artistic endeavors and not a creator, you're still welcome. I love connecting with people who enjoy my fiction or podcasts or tweet rants or essays. The Salon is for all.

Your support will help me have a steady income, which means the time and mental space to concentrate on writing (it's what I do best) and on the creative endeavors that feed my writing like podcasting, social justice activism, or my volunteer work for the Carl Brandon Society. If I reach my goals, your support could even help me with medical expenses. (The freelancing life is tough.)

Ready to become a member of the Salon? Pick your support level above (you can do monthly or yearly), settle into your seat, and enjoy the creative energy.
