I have been writing and telling stories for as long as I can remember.  Once when asked in a creative writing class why I wrote, my response was, "I can't not write. I do it like breathing."  It has been both a great comfort, and sometimes a great frustration.  I have been slowly releasing my stories to the wilds to see what happens. 

So far I've had a lot of good feedback.  As someone submitting to conventional publishers, I have a collection of some of the nicest rejection notices ever, since a lot of my stories tend to not strictly follow genre tropes.

The goals of this Patreon is to allow me to hire editors, and pay the friends who have offered to edit and proofread for me.  The secondary goal is for me to be able to go to part-time with the day job so that there is more time for writing and research. 

Please read and let me know if you enjoy them.
