My name is Lela Rast Hartsaw and I call myself a writer, speaker, and historic preservationist.

What does that mean?

Basically, in addition to being a busy mother of two, I am a freelance writer for a local family magazine, and I have written and published three children's books on local history in an effort to preserve a local landmark which I speak about anywhere I get invited to speak. While the magazine gig does pay a little every other month, being a stay-at-home mama pays $0. The time I spend researching, creating a  blog , maintaining three Facebook pages (like this one), and the occasional speaking invite also puts nothing in our family's checking account.

But, with Patreon, people who find value in my work—and the work of other artists, writers, and content providers—can make a monthly pledge to help offset the cost of providing this research, art, and content. People donate as little as the cost of a cup of coffee or as much as they choose to an individual, and in return, they get satisfaction, yes, but wait... there's more! As a Patreon pledge, you might be entitled to BONUS material or special content. Wouldn't that be fun?

So, I hope you will consider helping me out. I love what I do and I would love your support.
