You have the eternal gratitude of me and the dorks!




Welcome to the Unexpected Inspiration series, where magic is abundant, shenanigans are commonplace, and artists and carnival performers fill the cast.

In the country of Concordia reside a quintet of dorks, each with their own unique powers, perspectives, and plotlines. 
The five find themselves thrown into accidental adventures; from bribery pies and magical glitches to self-proclaimed arch-nemeses to cataclysmic destructive forces, Adair, Blythe, Etri, Sol, and Firedrake reluctantly step up to set things right. They’re not the best at being heroes, but sometimes the best heroes are the unexpected kind.

What to expect?
Join me on Patreon to follow the creations of an artist and author who's spent the past five years trying to wrangle a sprawling series into existence. Unexpected Inspiration is contemporary high fantasy that's lighthearted and fun, with a cast of lgbt+ characters and a focus on found family. I'm currently working on the first quartet of books in the series and I hope Patreon will be a great way to share all the extras that spring up as I write.

Here on Patreon I'll be sharing:
  • short stories and drabbles
  • world building tidbits and history facts
  • art including drawings, short comics, maps, and moodboards
  • crochet patterns based on the characters and/or their interests
These tiers will be coming very soon!

Want to learn more?
You can read 20+ previous short stories from the series for free on my author site/blog and Wattpad, and check out the moodboard page for quick, colorful info about the characters and world. If you'd like to see my art, check out my Etsy shop and
