Hi! Christine E. Schulze here, author of young adult and children's fantasy adventure books with a focus on creating diverse characters. This includes racial diversity, as well as characters who are blind, deaf, nonverbal, or have other disabilities. I'm also a DSP worker for Trinity Services in Mascoutah, IL. Trinity offers a day program and residential services for folks with autism and other disabilities

My books are my purpose and life-long dream, but I've also found great purpose in Trinity, which has become like a giant family to me. Working at Trinity has inspired several of my books, and I also give back by donating 25% of my sales to ALFA, a local charity that supports Trinity and the folks we serve. But on my own, I can't do nearly as much as I would like to for either my books or for Trinity.

This is where I need YOU.

By becoming my patron, you not only grant the means I need to continue develop my writing career, but you help also ensure that I can continue serving the people at Trinity who are my heart.

In becoming my patron, your monthly pledge helps me accomplish the following:

1. YOU help me to do more online marketing. More marketing means more sales, which means that YOU help me earn more to give back to ALFA and help out some amazing folks with autism live more fulfilling lives. Also, just as with my book sales, 25% of every pledge I receive here from YOU give as my Patron will go directly to ALFA. The other 75% will go toward the following:
2. YOU help me hire artists, which will allow me to create more children's books, audio books, book covers, etc.
3. YOU help me be able to donate my books to hospitals, schools, libraries, etc.
4. YOU allow me to travel and start doing more book-signings, locally at first, but I hope to expand. My goal is to inspire readers across the country and eventually the world!
5. YOU allow me to have more free time and allow me to build my writing career.

My goal for now is to find just $100 a month. That could mean finding 100 folks to give $1 or only 10 people to give $10, etc. That would free up some financial burden and allow me to start doing more for my books and Trinity's clients!

In return, I'm offering cool stuff like private update posts, free ebook downloads, and personalized autographed copies of my books. Short of meeting me at a book-signing, Patreon is the only place you can receive personalized, autographed copies of my books.

Thank you so much, God bless, and I look forward to working together with you to accomplish these dreams and goals. Together we can inspire the world with fantastical stories while creating more abundant lives for people with autism and other disabilities!
