Hi everyone, I'm SJ Segraves, and I'm thrilled that you are checking out my Patreon page! For the past thirty years, I have been an Equity actor, a theater manager, an Artistic Director, and a director and educator for young performers. I've spent a lot of my life in theaters. When I went back to school to get my masters' degree in education, I discovered a passion for a different kind of expression -- telling stories. 

A few years ago, I started to write: stories of my parents and my family (some of which are hilarious), stories of my ex-husband and how and why I decided to leave my marriage, stories of working with a professional theatre company, stories of beginning a new life in a new city at 41 years of age, and many, many stories of the characters I've met, experienced and loved throughout the years. 

After all these years of working in and around theatre, I have decided it's time to start telling my own stories in my own way, on my own terms. I have chosen Patreon as a way to share my stories with as many people who might enjoy and be entertained by them as possible. Also, Patreon will help discipline, sharpen and focus my writing, and help me move toward my goal of publication.

So where do you come in? As the page says, Patreon means patronage. As a patron of my page, you will get stories! Many of them will be true stories, but I'm going to change the names to protect my loved ones. Some of them will be fiction. Most of it will be virtual, delivered electronically. If you back at the higher levels, some of it will be physical - you may even get some original artwork! I plan to release no more than two "things" a month. So whatever level you choose to support will be charged no more than twice per month. 

By supporting this Patreon, you will be helping me to move forward in the next chapter of my creative life. If you are reading this, chances are you've been part of my journey in some way. I can't wait to share some of the stories of my journey with you. And if there's something we shared that you'd like to hear my take on, let me know! Thank you.
