Thank you for visiting my Patreon page! You're the reason I make anything and it means the world to me that you've decided to take a look at my little corner of creativity. But enough of the mushy stuff - let's talk about podcasts and books!

About Me

I'm an author of weird fiction for teens and adults. I've written a novel, a book of short stories, several novellas, and a stage play. I produce the podcasts "Bad Notes" and "The Be Mega Podcast." I'm known to draw monsters, heroes, and outlandish super villains. Between writing projects, I create loud heavy metal music.

About This Patreon
This Patreon will give you access to my ongoing fiction podcast, "Bad Notes," as it is produced. You'll get real time access to the story as it's created.

This story is my love letter to heavy metal and hard rock, as well as a way to document some of my own family's more unusual experiences. As a metaphorical child of the 1990's and literally the child of a man who toured the Midwest playing classic rock for thirty years, I have gazed awkwardly at the back end of rock and roll for most of my life. "Bad Notes" is an opportunity to merge my love of the paranormal with my passion for loud, unruly rock music in a tale that is weird, funny, terrifying, and poignant.

The Podcast
What happens when the slacker daughter of a regionally famous rock musician discovers that her father actually spent his weekends fighting vampires, ghouls, and demons? She gets wasted, of course. And then she takes action to learn the true nature of her father's profession, her family's dark secrets, and the magical power of a mix tape that could destroy humanity. The first fifteen episodes (Season 1) are available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Soundcloud, and wherever else you like to grab podcasts.

Your Help
Your support on Patreon will allow me to continue working on this project; but that's only the beginning. A handful of additional podcasts are eager to escape my brain and see the light of day. Plus, my goal is to eventually expand the "Bad Notes" universe into other projects like books and graphic novels. The problem is that it isn't necessarily free to publish podcasts and books, so your pledges will help offset the inevitable expense of helping these creations get in front of new readers and fans.

Goals
$0 of $2,000 per month
The next phase of "Bad Notes" is to expand it into a series of novels and short stories. With your help reaching this goal, I'll be able to focus on creating those books as I continue to tell the story online. That's double the story. Everybody wins!
