Hey! Hello! I'm Amanda, A.r. Rutter. I'm a writer, but I'm also disabled (aka super mentally ill; lifelong major depression [plus seasonal affective disorder], likely PTSD, and anxiety) so I can't work a traditional job. I especially can't work traditionally and write; I had to quit my last office job as a copywriter in 2016 and I've been supporting myself with freelance editing ever since.

So why Patreon?
Being able to make a steady income without taxing my mental health trying to find jobs, worrying about how to help pay the bills, and make sure my living situation and health are stable is incredibly important to me. When I have to make my income through freelancing, I take valuable spoons away from being able to write and edit my own work, which means I can't focus on building my career and likely have to take a hit to my mental health/stability.

But if I can make steady money sharing my writing, building an audience, and focusing on the career that I want, like with monthly payments from Patreon, I can keep my focus on what really matters and provide sick nasty LGBT content for you, my patrons!

If you want to support me in another way, you can buy me a coffee!

Witches, werewolves, metahumans, monsters, ghostie goos? You'll find it all in my books! I also have #OwnVoices content with bisexuality, mental illness (depression/anxiety), being agender, and trauma. I mostly focus on dark fantasy/urban fantasy. I tend to write a mix of YA and NA/Adult; my YA books are pretty much the books I wish I had when I was a teenager and my adult are pretty much the...books I wish I had as an adult lmao. 

Check out my WIP List for novels I'm working on, links to excerpts and full chapters, and the Short Stories tag for shorts I've posted for $5 patrons!
