Who am I? 

My name is Craig Barker: dog lover, absurdist, fried chicken enthusiast, and a young-ish author full of dreams. I live with my partner, Peter, and our dog, Drake. Both of these individuals mean a great deal to me--one more than the other, and i'm sure you know who I mean (Hint: it's Drake). 

What am I doing? 

Procrastinating...probably. I also write books. I've written a variety of series under a variety of monikers over the years, but being one of the gays, my passion always brings me back to the stories of LGBT people.  

I want to write superheroes who also happen to be gay. I want to write men falling in love against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world. I want to write fantasy, supernatural, and horror, all of which star queer characters in the leading role. 

Why Patreon? 

Patreon is a wonderful tool to help bolster an aspiring author's dreams. It can keep the lights on, the water running, and the dog fed. As an M/M author, i found a circle that enjoyed the genre and was lucky enough to take my writing full time. However, as someone now focusing on a broader scope of LGBT fiction, my future is uncertain. Patreon can (and hopefully, will) help support me through this transitional period.
