Ska:noñh & ii-wy em hotep (Welcome!) My name is Tamara (3 syllables; rhymes with camera). I'm an Onondaga/Métis from Michigan now living in Oregon, after sojourns in Chicago, Silicon Valley, and Southern California. I'm a storyteller, researcher, author, teacher, technophile, and gamer, among other things. Professionally I've worked as an Egyptologist (in museums and even on TV!) and a Coptologist, studying Egypt in all its forms. I've written, edited, and designed books. I've been involved with Kemetic Orthodoxy, a modern practice of ancient Egyptian polytheism, since founding it in 1989. My academic background includes two master's degrees (Egyptology from the University of Chicago; Coptic Studies from Macquarie University) and a PhD in religion from Claremont Graduate University. While there are few things I don't find interesting, I'm fascinated by Egypt, and topics related to Egypt are the general subject of this Patreon.

Related to writing, I've completed three successful Kickstarters. The first appeared in 2017, the second in 2018, and my third project there drops in 2019. I'm working on other projects too, and that's where Patreon comes in. Projects need time, and time needs funding. Patreon enables me to dedicate time for writing, teaching, and creating. This means more for you to read, more for me to write, and more for us to share: the best sort of un-vicious circle! Your membership helps me do things you appreciate. You receive members-only perks, early access, Patreon-only opportunities, and the knowledge that you enable my craft and enrich my life. Let's have some fun!

Goals
$973 of $1,000 per month
Reaching $1000 per month in Patreon memberships would cover half my monthly rent and utilities, permitting me to work half time and dedicate the rest of my time to writing. It would make a huge difference in how quickly I get things done and the number of projects I can take on.
(Goal initially reached August 2017)
