Hi I’m Natalie, and I love Canada and history!
I live in Southern Alberta, and have diplomas in Multimedia and Animation, work on freelance graphic design, and I live on a farm and draw stuff!

About my current project!
Redcoat West is a free-to-read webcomic that has been an ongoing project since 2009!
The idea for Victorian Mounties and time travelling started back when I was in high school (a decent time ago). I’ve always loved Canadian History, it’s young but rich! I’m very lucky to live where I do, because one of my favourite bits of Canadian history was the North West Mounted Police (now the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) aka Mounties! Mounties were VERY prevalent in Southern Alberta in the early years after the creation of the force, and I worked as (among many things) a reenactor/interpreter for a museum dedicated to the history of the Mounties, which just sparked my interest in them even more!

“Northerns” were a BIG thing from the Victorian Era up until the 70’s, and although they are still around here and there, they aren’t the big deal they use to be! Northerns are like Westerns, but are stories that take place in North America, North of the 49 (think anything like Jack London, or Dudley-Do Right).
Redcoat West is a homage to those old Northerns, but also has some time travel and fantasy thunderbird magic-like shenanigans thrown in!

So Why Patreon?
My biggest response from my readers is “when will there be more” I can never give anyone a definitive answer, because well… life. Because Redcoat West is primarily an unpaid personal project, I can’t dedicate time to it when I need to make ends meet. Usually my time is taken up by work and freelance jobs.

With your help here on Patreon, I can continue with Redcoat West on a more regular basis. I will be able to specifically dedicate time for our troop and keep their story going! We can set stretch goals in order to get the story moving faster and more often! And if this story ends I have many more to tell, both of the Redcoat West variety and others!

A HUGE thank you for your support! Even reading this page means you were interested and that means a lot!!
