Welcome to my Patreon page!

I am primarily an author of mystery, science fiction, and fantasy novels, but when push comes to shove, I'll write whatever grabs me.

I started writing at 14, working quietly at night after everyone else had gone to bed. My first book was published in 2014, a science-fiction mystery novel called "Kingdom Come." I'm now working on the first novel in a fantasy series, and can sometimes even be seen writing in daylight hours.

My first novel is no longer published owing to some problems that the publisher ran into. My current plan is to complete the first novel in the fantasy series, and then shop both novels around to agents. The purpose of this Patreon is really to help me survive while I write and then search for an agent, without having to resort to working (yet) another job, or selling any organs.

I'm originally from the south-east of England, but I spent my teens and early twenties living in Wales, and I received a BA in English with Creative writing from Bangor university. Since then I have moved to the States, completed an MA at UAlbany in upstate New York, and I now live near Atlanta, Georgia.

As well as the rewards for the $1 tier, I'll turn that karma into something more tangible! You’ll be listed as a supporter in the acknowledgements on my short stories, and I'll give you a shout on on my social media, too!
Short Story!
$10 or more per Short Story 5 patrons
Like short stories? While I tend towards novels, I also write short stories. At this level I'll send you a short story every so often, plus all previous rewards.
You Choose! (Short Story)
$15 or more per Short Story 1 patron
When I'm choosing what to write for the short story, supporters at this level will get an input into what I decide. Either help me decide between some ideas, or set me a challenge! Plus all previous rewards.
Goals
$59 of $225 per Short Story
A huge part of getting your work out there is networking. When this goal is met, I’ll be putting money aside to save for trips to writers’ conferences and conventions around the country. These are places where I’ll be able to get advice from people in the industry and also have a chance to meet prospective agents, publishers, and industry contacts. In general, it will help to get my name out in the publishing world.
