About


Imagine yourself roaming in the woods, it’s a lovely day and you're wandering to places you’ve never been before. You come through some trees and see a little house. Not an evil witch’s house made of candy but a pleasant little cabin. The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and you feel happy to be there.

I little woman sits on the porch shelling peas, a cat by her side. She looks up at you and waves. "Hello."

Something about her makes you wonder if maybe she is a witch, or if she at least has some magical powers. But, you don’t feel uncomfortable so you return her “Hello” and wander over for a chat. You pass a pleasant hour wherein she weaves you a story, it’s a magical story and perfect for what’s been on your mind. You leave feeling refreshed and inspired.



She’s given you sandwiches made from home-baked bread for later, and your brain is spilling over with ideas for what you want to do once you get back to real life. Something about that little woman made you feel like even doing dishes has a purpose beyond what we can see with our mortal eyes.⠀


Tales Fantastic is meant to be a place in the wild woods of the internet where you can relax and enjoy a little escape. Each story is free to read on talesfantastic.com and the adventure continues here on Patreon. 

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform similar to Kickstarter, but instead of funding a single project you choose to support an artist or cause on an ongoing basis. Patreon makes it easy to support artists and creators plus you can cancel, increase or decrease your pledge at any time.  

With Tales Fantastic, new stories are released periodically, and the goal for 2019 is to take the stories that exist, improve them, and turn them into a beautiful book using Kickstarter to fund it. Not only will you get the chance to see these stories evolve and come to life you'll also get to follow the process of smaller projects. Click the "Become a Patron" button to join me on this quest to bring these stories to life.
