Welcome to my Patreon page!

My name is A.Y. or Yahtzee for short and I’m a writer from the northwest that makes everything from mixed media word projects to traditional novels and poetry. My hobbies include putting math into art, getting college degrees, and refreshing netflix. Currently I’m working on several long projects and a few stand alone pieces, all of which will be posted on this patreon when they are completed.

So…. what do you write ABOUT though?

I’ve been known to write sci-fi and then turn around and work on realistic fiction. I like to write books that traditionally fit into YA and New Adult, and my poetry tends toward more modernist forms. Everything I write is going to be at least a little bit Queer, and I’m committed to having diversity of all kinds in my work. As for themes and all that gooey stuff, most of my work centers around the idea of family and what it can mean to different people. I also write a lot about fitting into society or lack thereof, romantic relationships, and finding balance.

What are you working on right now?

So many, ya’ll, so many.

My main project right now is a poetry book called Dirty Thoughts. It’s made up of poems that in some way embody or express a dirty thought, whether literally or figuratively. My next priority is my senior project and manuscript Smoke, about a young girl struggling to balance family and relationships with what she wants out of life during one of the worst forest fires in her state’s history. After that I have a few more things in the works, but for now they are still in the very early planning stages. Once they’re more developed, I’ll be announcing them here, so stay tuned!

Also, here is a video of me reading four of the poems that will be in Dirty Thoughts at our local poetry reading. These are early versions yet.

If you’d like to continue seeing my work and getting updates, check out the pledge rewards to the right! The more you pledge the more updates and insight into my process you will get! However, if you can only pledge a small amount, do not fear! All my work will be available on patreon for all patrons at some point.

Official Writer Library: I will be able to formally re-organize my reading nook into an Official Library for research and study purposes. This will involve buying new bookshelves for fiction vs. non-fiction vs. research lit and new books that will expand my knowledge and tools as a writer so that I can get better content out to you in no time flat!
