About The River's Wayward Daughter

Hello!  I'm Melissa, and I'm an artist, teller of tales, and wanderer.  In the Before Times, my dream in life was to be able to travel, explore new places, meet new people, and and tell tales of the things I found along the way.  My travels are a little closer to home these, but my love of sharing stories is as strong as ever, while we wait for it to be safe to wander the world again.  So for now, I write stories of Smol Monsters having Adventures, poppet witches, roadside saints and lore, and of life seen through a lens of myth and folklore.  This life, though, needs support from others, (my ridiculous cats eat a surprising amount of food and are incredibly attached to living in a house).  Stories are air for me, but without folks to share those stories with, it's that gets lonely.  Art and stories are meant to be shared among friends, and I would love it you would join us around the campfire.

Patrons get early access to all new posts, as a perk of subscribing, however due to my general allergy to paywalls, all posts besides "postcards" become publicly accessible a couple of days after posting.  Please contribute if you can, though, as this is my only source of income currently.

Here's to open roads, interesting finds, and a life of exploration and wonder.  Won't you please join me?

Full disclosure, I have one goal, and that is being able to support myself, keep my cats fed and healthy, and retain my home without having to worry about finding and holding a day job that disables me more than I already am.
