About Tommy Donbavand

Hello Potential Patrons!

My name is Tommy Donbavand, I'm 48 years old, and I'm the author of almost 100 books for children and young people.  My work includes the 13-title Scream Street series (recently adapted as a stop-motion animated series for BBC TV), Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow, and numerous titles for reluctant and struggling readers such as Home, Raven and My Teacher Ate My Brain.

On 10th March 2016, I was diagnosed with cancer.  Treatment begins shortly.

One of the (many) disappointing results of my diagnosis is that I will have to stop visiting schools, libraries and book festivals to teach creative writing, talk about my work as an author, and inspire a love of reading for pleasure.  For the past ten years, I've visited at least 70 different schools per year.

This will result in a sizeable dip in my income.  Hence Patreon...

I really don't want to feel like I'm begging, or asking for handouts - but I am going to have to find a way to earn extra money through the one skill this disease has thankfully left me able to do...  I can write.  In fact, I'm about to have lots of writing time on my hands!

So, if you support me I will create exclusive content of all kinds for my patrons: stories, poetry, articles, jokes, lesson plansclass worksheets and much more.  I will also offer writing advice for anyone who has ever wanted to put pen to paper.  I'll tell you how to plot, build a world, create characters, complete a draft, rewrite, and then submit to publishers and agents or self-publish your work on the Kindle.

Hey, I might even tell you a little bit about my cancer treatment, too.

If you've read this far, I'm very grateful.  If you are able to support me - even better.

Many thanks

Tommy Donbavand
