One of the truest young voices I’ve ever heard... This is a writer who will go farther than perhaps even she imagines.
– L.J. Smith, author of the Vampire Diaries series


Words are great! I write them in all sorts of different contexts. As you can see if you have a look at my website, I've tried my hand at everything from romance novels to punk zines to video games to comics.

To tell the truth, when I was a kid and I'd say that I wanted to be a hairdresser or a doctor, I assumed that everyone else always had an unspoken "as well as being a writer" along with their own stated ambitions. I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a writer. Ever since I first understood that books were created by people, I wanted to be one of those people. 

I love my work. I find it personally and creatively fulfilling. Freelance writing can be an unpredictable income source, however, even when I'm in a position to take on multiple projects at once -- which is not always the case. I have bipolar disorder, which often leaves me unable to work for weeks at a time. And just to make things even more exciting, in early 2016 I had to undergo neurosurgery to remove a brain tumour, which has left me with very little stamina and further reduced my ability to work at the kind pace I'd prefer to work at.

At the urging of friends and readers I've set up this page in the hope of generating a small regular cash flow to help me make ends meet as I continue to create new works. I'll be sharing these creations, both in-progress and in their finished form, with those who become my patrons. That is such a great pair of words to type, I gotta say. "My patrons". I feel like I should be painting cherubs for rich Italian families or something. Rad.

9 patrons
Patrons who contribute a dollar or more per month will be invited to follow along with each piece of writing while it's still in the work-in-progress stage. These invitations will always be opt-in; you'll never wind up with your inbox bombarded with a genre you aren't interested in or a type of writing you'd prefer not to read.

(previews are subject to NDAs which may have been signed with contracting bodies and also subject to whether I have anything ready for anyone to look at that month.)
Goals
$13 of $100 per month
All patrons will go into the running to win a free title of their choosing from my back catalog each month. I'll give away five of these at a time.
