Once upon a time, in the remote mountains of Colorado, an author was born.

From the time she could string words into sentences, she was weaving tall tales for anyone who would listen – and even some who weren’t listening.

My name is D. Gabrielle Jensen. I am a punk in pearls, a dark soul with a bright candy shell, the obnoxious extrovert with a flair for drama. I am a rebel creator of dark urban fantasy, gritty slam poetry, and startling pulp horror. I have never been one to adhere to the rules of writing anything simply because someone told me it was a rule. Grammar, sure, but who says you shouldn’t start a story with dialog? Dropping readers in the middle of a heated argument or a police interrogation seems like a pretty damned good hook to me. There’s no reason you can’t set the scene, introduce the characters 100 or 150 words in, after they’ve exchanged a few insults.

For as long as I can remember, I have centered my stories around women like me. Women who know the path to progress is blazed by risks, by bucking the status quo. And I have centered my life around those same women.

In true rebel fashion, I avoid the term “strong women.” On the one hand, I think it has reached a point where it's losing meaning through frequency. The more people say it, the less visceral meaning it possesses. 

On the other hand, it implies there are also weak women and I don’t know that I believe that either. I believe, throughout history, merely being a woman has been an act of courage and strength. Personal hang ups aside, I write strong women because I don’t know how not to. I read stories about strong women, I follow strong women... I support strong women.

What does that mean for you?

One thing I encounter, almost daily, in my regular life, is awe, amazement, and intrigue at my rebel soul. I will teach you to be your own rebel. You have inside access to the creation of my own rebel women. You will get to know the rebel women who inspire me. You will get to know the strong men who stand with my rebel women, real and fictional. You will find the rebel strength within your self.

Why Patreon?


Patreon is an investment. You are telling me, through your monthly sponsorship, that you are invested in what I am creating, that you want more. Through your sponsorship, you are granted access to corners of my worlds that no one in the public will ever see. Follow a demonic prison guard through the day-to-day operations of Hell. Read the raw, uncut emotions of my poetry before they are crafted into the slam beat style I have come to call my own. Receive handwritten copies of my work in the mail. Yes, the mail! There are physical rewards as well. And not just in the higher tiers. Every tier receives a special thank you gift at sign up.

Special Consideration to Creators

For anyone who signs up using a verified creator account (be you a writer, musician, or graphic designer, as long as you have an about and at least one tier), there are special rewards just for you. From promotional posts on my social media accounts to artist features on my blog, I will help drive traffic to your Patreon as well. I understand your sponsorship of my work cuts into the proceeds you are making from your own platform and I want to show my appreciation for that especially.

Call to action


If any of this sounds appealing to you, sign up today. Sponsorships are billed at the beginning of each month and you can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel at any time.

Not sure? Click “Follow” and get notified about occasional free posts meant to entice you. I also have special gifts set aside for anyone who upgrades their sponsorship, even if just from Follow to $1. Test the waters. There’s nothing wrong with that. Some people walk out of the locker room and head straight for the diving board, others dip their toes in the kiddie pool, first. I appreciate all of it.
