Talofa and hi everyone! Thank you for joining me here at Patreon. I've been blogging my Sleepless in Samoa woes and joys for 14years now, growing from a little box where I basically talked to myself - to connecting with so many amazing readers from around the world. My blog helped give me the courage to take my fiction writing to the next (scary!) level of actually letting the universe read it, and I've since self-published 9 books, lots of short stories and also stories for children.

Writing is my passion, and blogging especially, is my favoritest thing. Unfortunately writing doesn't pay the bills. (It does buy tuna and rice every now and again though!) 

I hope that by joining Patreon and with your support, I can afford to make writing more than something I do at 2am, when the day-job is done, all the kids are asleep and I scramble to rustle up some blog-worthy thoughts. 

With enough patrons, I can dedicate actual daylight hours into finishing Scarlet Redemption, as well as the two other novels that have been simmering on the back burner.  I can go back to blogging 2...3...4...5 times a week, and even pick up that most embarassing of activities again - the video blog aaaargh!

It's your amazing support and encouragement that's brought me this far in the writing journey. Thank you for all you do to share my blogs and books, and for the #bookLove messages you send in. I hope you can join me with a patron pledge of a dollar a month and help get more Samoan stories out into the universe.

Faafetai lava.
