Hi! I’m the author of the steampunk adventure series Tales of the Captain Duke. I like fantastical fiction, big damn heroines and heroes, and other stories that re-shape our worlds. 

With one series finished (and many more on the way!) I’m working on new short stories, poetry, flash fiction — and yes, novels!

My favourite part of the past five years has been connecting with readers, and the patron-only feed will be a space dedicated to that connection, with exclusive goodies and access to my creative process (Hint: It involves a lot of coffee).  

If you decide to become a monthly Patron, you’ll have access to behind-the-scenes videos, blog posts about writing, a first look at deleted scenes and bonus chapters, character profiles and SO MUCH MORE!

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

Still undecided? Check out some of the posts I've made public for a preview of what to expect! 

I’ll be using this funding stream on things to help me grow as an author — like travel expenses, conference fees, and even taking time off from my day job to do a writing residency. I'm at a stage with my writing where I'm investing in a long-term career, and thanks to people like you I'm in a position where I can start to do that.

So most of all, THANK YOU for believing in me!

Goals
$142 of $400 per month
*slams book*
This goal is just the personal satisfaction of covering my student loan payments each month.

If we reach this goal, I will create a poll for all patrons to choose a prompt from my university-era writing ideas notebook, and turn it into a short story!
