About Sarah Barr

Stories connect us. Fiction, especially, plunges us into worlds beyond our own, introduces us to people we may never otherwise meet, and reflects back to us those parts of ourselves that are universal.

I began to write because one story followed me for decades, and didn't let go until I gave it life on the page. Other stories followed, and in every one - no matter how distant the characters seemed from my own life - I found a part of myself. I want to share these stories because I know you're in there too.

Some of you may be new to Patreon, so I'd like to share a little bit about the platform. The concept of patrons supporting creators is an old one, gleaned from a system that brought the world the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The idea is that people who love creations (patrons) give what they can to people who love to create (creators.) It's a gift of money, yes, but more importantly it's the gift of time. Creating anything, from a story to a song, takes a lot of time (a shocking amount of which is spent staring at a wall as the feeling of the creation builds before it manifests.)  And a creator can't do much in 15 or 20 minute bursts, at least this one can't. It takes longer than that to go deep.

Your patronage, to this creator or any other on this site, is received with the utmost gratitude. It's a vote of confidence. It's a pat on the back. It's a whisper of encouragement, "Go on, dive in. Bring us back something magical." 

Thank you for your consideration! And while you're here, look around a bit at what others are bringing forward for you. I think you'll find something you like...

Like every writer, I crave more time to devote to the craft. Patronage at this level would go a long way towards allowing me to spend less time at my day job and more time at my dream job.
