Hello! I’m the author of the steampunk adventure series Tales of the Captain Duke. Currently, I'm working on more smart, progressive & hopeful speculative fiction, as well as a new photography/poetry project.

With one series of novellas complete and more stories on the way, I'm at a stage with my writing where I'm investing in a long-term career. Thanks to people like you, I'm in a position where I can work as a full-time creator (& part-time comms genius at a local literary non-profit).

My favourite part of the past six years as an indie author has been connecting with readers online and at events, and the patron-only feed will be a space dedicated to that connection with exclusive goodies, advice and access to a behind-the-scenes look at my creative process (Hint: It involves a lot of coffee).   

Most of all, THANK YOU for believing in me!

Ready to come on this new adventure with me? Click the button to become a patron!

Patreon is a membership platform that allows you to support creators directly.

You can join any of my rewards tiers for access to the patron-only feed and other exclusive benefits, like getting the first look at new projects or even a monthly postcard from me to you.

I use my Patreon funds for things that help me build a career as an author. It means I can invest in certain things now, instead of waiting for an imaginary future where I have the means to do it all.

Here's some examples of what I've been able to do with this support:
  • provide food and refreshments at the book launch parties for Of Tempests and Teacups
  • purchase marketing and shipping supplies in bulk, saving money in the long run
  • offset fees & travel for Ad Astra, Word on the Street, Can-Con, and the SFWA Nebula convention
  • take writing courses from Masterclass and the Rambo Academy for Wayward Writers
  • collaborate with artist OvaryAction on character art for the bonus profiles
  • purchase an instant camera and film for a photo + poetry project
  • create a free video series for the audio edition of The Stowaway Debutante
  • travel to Winnipeg and do research for an upcoming book
  • get direct feedback from patrons on character names, membership card design & post topics!

All of this was possible thanks to my generous patrons! In the future, I’m looking at saving up for a writing residency, doing more events and festivals, and adding to my laptop replacement fund.

As my patron, for as little as $1 a month you’ll get a first look at any new projects I’m working on, as well as bonus content like profiles of your favourite characters! 

And if you want even more access to exclusive content and rewards, there's a number of tiers you can check out in the sidebar:
  • $3/month - access to patron-only feed + recognition in published books/videos
  • $5/month - early access to exclusive posts and monthly #IntotheArchives posts!
  • $10/month - all of the above AND you can vote in polls + I'll mail you a limited edition gold foil membership card with your name on it!
  • $15/month - all of the above + monthly postcards from me to you!
  • $50/month - everything here + one personalized piece of writing each year—this could be your wedding vows, a vignette of your favourite characters, or even a birthday card!

No problem! Patreon makes it super easy to adjust your monthly pledge. You can always change your pledge to a lower tier or even try out a higher tier for a little while to check out the rewards!

If your circumstances change and you need to delete your pledge, that’s fine too! Please only contribute what you can easily afford. Every dollar helps, and I appreciate all my patrons – even those who pop in for a few months! You’ll still have access to the public posts and any physical rewards. 

The most important thing is that you do what feels comfortable for you. And if you have any questions or suggestions on how I can help you get the most value from your patronage, please message me!
