I'm Ebony Harris, Artist, Author, Graphic Designer, Mentor and Workshop Facilitator. Above all that other stuff, On September 11, 2006, I gave birth to my wonderfully talented son Ethan Taylor, who just happens to be an author who published his first book at seven. So, I'm also a proud mom as well. Have you ever felt your gift calling you? I have, which is why I teach at various recreation centers in Baltimore. It seems like I don't sleep very much, and sometimes that's the case, but something inside of me is compelling me to keep moving.

Writing is something I do to relax, it's highly therapeutic. I wish I could give this love to everyone I come in contact with, which is why I decided to go into recreation centers. I get young children work with them to write out their visions for the lives and they set goals towards the future. I also work with them and teach them the art of storytelling. After the workshops, many of them are hooked, they want to become writers too. If I keep it up, we might just bring real change to the streets of Baltimore. I said it over and over, "If you want to see real change you have to start with the youth." 

Why did I choose Patreon?

I'm a homeschool mom living in Baltimore City with my son Ethan and our dog Chewie. I currently ghostwrite, teach and drive Uber and Lyft to take care of our living expenses and to pay for the workshops that I provide at the Baltimore City Recreation center for the youth. Yes, those workshops are not free. It seems like the perfect set up, but the more I drive the less time I have to do the things I love to do, like be a mom, write and teach.
We recently moved into our new home after staying with friends for more than a year. This Patreon has a purpose: to help me to cover the cost of anything needed for basic survival. I eventually want to be able to work full-time writing and helping others learn to write and dream. After I make enough to sustain, this Patreon will be used to buy our first home ever a goal I have been working towards for a long time now. 

What will you get for your patronage?

You may already know this, but the way Patreon works is you pay me and I create for you. In this case, I will be creating some blog post and relative content for each level of patronage every month. Also, I will keep you posted on the various things going on in our lives and some of the events that we go to. Some of the content you can expect will be downloads of the spoken word in my book which I hope to turn into an audio book one day soon.

By supporting this Patreon, you help to free up time so I can use it creatively. I am working on books that have not been published. One is called, "The Ones Who Remember", another, "Enter In" and the last one, "And They Overcame". Remarkable stories that need to be told, in my case, life happened. One of the worse feelings for me is to be driving an Uber or a Lyft customer and the inspiration starts to flow, but I'm not able to pull over and start taking notes.
My Patreons will be able to see and hear the things I am doing long before it comes out in anywhere else. I'm hoping to produce at least one thing a month per tier as well as weekly blogs to update you on my progress.

Thank you in advance for becoming a Patreon.
