Welcome!
Thanks for visiting my landing page here on Patreon, and thank you all the more for becoming my fan and Patron! If we haven't met, my name is Shannon. I'm a 36-year-old single mom with lots of stories to tell. 

I am a top writer in more than 10 topics including Parenting, relationships,  and mental health on Medium.com. When I first began writing essays on Medium, I had a vision called Big Feelings In Adulting. It was basically my vision of a community where "anything human is mentionable," as Fred Rogers once wrote.

However, as time passed on Medium, it became clear that a career in writing might be more possible than I once believed, so my focus shifted to simply writing about about issue that matters to me.

These days, whether I'm writing about sex, parenting, or mental health, I refuse to sweep difficult feelings under the rug, but prefer to talk about them. I believe we must look for ways to take positive action to get through those emotions. 

Why join Patreon?
For close to four years, I worked from home as a writer in social media marketing. When that landscape began to change and it quit covering my bills, it felt like the universe was urging me to forge my own path and write about the things that matter to me.

Within 8 months of writing on Medium, I quit my job in social media to focus on my own writing full-time. 

I joined Patreon to make it more viable for me to write daily on Medium, to build a community of great readers,  and to connect with a community of people who could benefit from my work. When you become my Patron, you get an inside look at the creation of a wide range of writing which I hope will encourage and inspire you to live out your own dreams.
