About

I'm Rachael Herron, the bestselling author of more than twenty books which include mainstream novels, lighter feminist romances, memoir, and nonfiction. 

I mostly write novels, but creative non-fiction has my heart. Essays. You know, those truth-telling real-life pieces of writing that inspire you to do more, to be more.

A creative life takes as much crafting as the things we actually make. And essays about this life take time to write.
Real time. Thoughtful time. And time is money. 

So right here, right now, I'm putting out this patron jar. 

I'm asking for your support. This is old-school patronage at its best. You are literally making it possible for me to create more. You just pick a tip jar amount, and I'll reward you for your support with an essay.

TO BE CLEAR: Every time I write and send out an essay, you get charged the amount you pledge. Pledge one dollar and after five essays, you'll have spent $5. It is not per month, just whenever I provide work (though I try to do them monthly). 

If you go up the scale of patronage, you get extras. I'll send you texts! You'll get signed books! Private FB Live videos! Depending on the level of support you choose, I could even be your personal creativity coach! 

If you become my patron, you're helping me, as a writer, directly. You're supporting me in making something that will hopefully inspire you to become more creative in your own life.

Thank you so much.
xo,
Rachael
