Welcome! My name is Tamara (3 syllables; rhymes with camera). I'm a storyteller, researcher, writer, teacher, technophile, and gamer, among many other things. I've written (and sometimes also designed) books. I've been involved with the Kemetic Orthodox Religion, a modern practice of ancient Egyptian polytheism, since I founded it in 1989. I've worked in museums and academia, and currently, I'm a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in religion at Claremont Graduate University. While there are few things I don't find interesting, I'm fascinated by Egypt. Most of this Patreon relates to Egypt, in both academic and esoteric perspectives.

I've completed three successful Kickstarters. The first appeared in 2017, the second releases this summer, and my third project there drops in 2019. I'm working on other projects too, and that's where Patreon comes in. Projects require time, and time requires funding. Patreon enables me to dedicate time to writing and creating. This means more for you to read, and more for me to write: the best sort of un-vicious circle! Your membership in my Patreon enables me to do more things you appreciate. You get members-only perks, early access, Patreon-only opportunities, and the knowledge that you enable my craft and enrich my life. Let's create together!

Goals
$1,105 of $2,000 per month
When I reach $2000 per month in Patreon pledges, I'm able to cover my monthly rent and utilities, and then can forego freelancing in favor of full-time writing and producing my own projects. This would free me from the cycle of outside work and change the way I currently work, and would be a tremendous opportunity to be creative and productive.
