BE MY 21ST CENTURY PATRON
If something about my writing resonates (positively) for you or you otherwise find it worthy, I would be surpassingly grateful for your support via my Patreon page for as little as a dollar a month, for which you’ll receive a backstage pass to my creative process and writer’s life, including my writer’s quest for truth, beauty (where it can be found), and enlightenment on topics as challenging and momentous as child sexual abuse and climate change (among others).

(Patreon is, basically, a 21st century incarnation of the traditional, patron-based method of supporting artists, enabling small-donation, crowdfunded support of artists on an ongoing basis.)
