Calendar and Subscription Info

 My goal is to support my family with my writing. That means that if you subscribe to my Patreon, if you buy my books or click through to my paywalled work, your dollars are going to buy milk and rent, electricity and pens.

Everything you contribute means more time to create more fiction, do more photo shoots, and generally chase the work that I love.

And in return, you receive exclusive content, essays, travelogues, short stories, photography, reviews, tales from the MFA circus, reviews, online chats, writing how-to’s and generally anything else I can think of…

I sing for my supper.

THANK YOU to all my wonderful Patrons!
