Welcome to the Patreon Page of Princess Alethea, Defender of Misfit Fairy Tales and Sower of Inspiration, Optimism, and Unbridled Joy!

************
I like to write. I am the author of all sorts of subversive things that are too clever for their own good. I have been called "the female Neil Gaiman," a "contemporary Shakespeare," and "a veritable badass fairy princess." There is a definite split between the people who would want to live in my head, and the people who are scared to death by the prospect.

I like to dress up in costume.
On top of being a child actress, I've been attending conventions since 1996 (DragonCon). My dream closet has always been: Half costumes and Half geeky t-shirts. Now that I own my own house, I just have two closets--one for each.

I like to entertain.
My favorite thing to do is rant about the original Grimm and Andersen and Lang fairy tales, but really...I just love making people smile.

I like adventures.
Call it the curse of an interesting life--everywhere I go, adventure goes with me!  I will share these stories with my Patrons...and mail them postcards of my best travel pics!

************
Once upon a time, I wasn’t a princess. I was just a little girl from Vermont who dressed up in her mother’s skirts and ran around the yard speaking in a British accent. I made mud pies and counted snakes and collected four-leaf clovers. The year I got a cassette player for my birthday, I spent hours locked in the bathroom recording optimistic motivational speeches.

My best friend was a tree.

My world has always been a bit special, a bit odd, and a bit magical. The most fun was sharing this magic with my friends and family. When I became a published author, I suddenly had the opportunity to share with everyone in the world.

There just needed to be a place where I could pull everyone together from all aspects of my life: the picture book readers, the romance writers, the stage performers and voice narrators, the artists, the cosplayers, the horror writers and movie makers, my convention family—ALL my families. The one I was born into, and the ones I’ve made along the way. YOU ARE AMAZING. Every single one of you. My life is not complete without you.

In 2014 I moved to Florida to rebuild my life...and that’s exactly what I’ve done. I literally set the stage for “The Alethea Show.” From my library to my costume closet, from my treadmill to my writing couch, from my stack of tiaras to the makeshift art studio in my garage...everything is here. The only thing missing are my cheerleaders. My supporters. Those people for whom I originally created this magical, Wonderful World of Princess Alethea.

THE ONLY THING MISSING IS YOU.

And so I put a call here out into the world: if you have ever loved my writing, if you have ever met me at a convention, if you have ever admired my costumes, if you have ever read my essays, if you have ever watched a Fairy Tale Rant video, if you have ever liked something I’ve said or shared on social media, I invite you to my Kingdom where rainbows are seasonal and the flowers bloom all year round and exotic birds are as prevalent as exotic Pokemon...and there is glitter in the floorboards.

Join me on my adventures. Learn about new authors, new artists. MEET EACH OTHER! I promise to delight and entertain you. I promise to introduce you to fabulous things and fabulous people. I promise to put amazing things out into the world, so that amazing things come back to us all, threefold.

I am here for YOU.

Take my hand...are you ready to explore this Wonderful World together?
