Hi! I'm Tianna. You might know me from my JK Rowling Blocked Me On Twitter video. Maybe you know me from my wizard rock band Tianna and the Cliffhangers. Maybe you've seen my Twitter, where I talk about writing my Young Adult novels a lot.

If we're just meeting each other, hi! I'm Tianna Mignogna (tee-ANN-uhh mig-NOG-nuh) and I create music, art, fan fiction, blog posts, poems, nonfiction, and novels. To me, it's one of the best joys in life to share those creations with others.

I graduated with a BA in English Creative Writing and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Every day I apply social and literary concepts from my studies to my life, but so far I've had a rough time finding a job suitable to my skills. I've worked at a home improvement store, a library, a shoe store, and a bookstore, but it's not enough to fund the costs of rent, food, medication, craft material, traveling to play concerts, caring for my cat Alfie, creating band merchandise, and more. I've pursued my passion for writing and publishing as a Fandom Forward Writer for the Harry Potter Alliance, a freelance writer at Ultius, a transcriptionist for Rev.com, and an intern for Talcott Notch Literary Agency. All of these positions were either volunteer or paid inconsistently with unreliable workflow. 

2015's diagnoses of anxiety, depression, and OCD also came as a heavy blow to little old me, who had spent 21 years convincing myself she was Just Fine. Those parts of me really got me down on myself, but now I know I have so much to offer. These internal struggles, coupled with the inconsistent income I earn from art, made me realize I don't want to have to give up on my creative talents, or let them fall by the wayside, and that's where you wonderful people come in.

I will always be a creative person, but my work is fueled by presenting those projects to people - it's how I empower myself and others. When you make a donation each month, I will provide you with art that is specifically made for you. Even if you can't donate now to become my patron, sharing my work is also fantastic and much appreciated. If you do decide to become a patron, I have handfuls of rewards up my sleeves for you! 

I would love to continue doing what makes me happiest, and receiving any sort of consistent income for my efforts would be a dream. I will be creating things monthly here, so please check out my rewards and see if anything interests you. Much love to y'all.

Details about what I create:

Music: I formed my wizard rock band I Speak Tree in 2009, released 2 albums and an EP full of songs about Harry Potter, and then changed my name to Tianna and the Cliffhangers. Since then I have produced three CDs and two EPs I recorded on my own, and am now working on another CD called "Better Than Fanfiction." I sing and play guitar, mandolin, tambourine, ukulele, banjo, kazoo, banjolele, and a bit of bass guitar.

Art: Doodles always waged war against my actual notes in my school binders. I began painting and sketching and making oil pastels of my favorite characters, and of people and sceneries that popped their way into my head and eventually found their way into my stories.

Writing: Popular inspirational quotes often preach to "write for yourself", but the most exciting part of writing is that it has the potential to heal myself and others. That an idea that strikes me in the middle of the night could reach a person from an entirely different culture is enough to get my blood flowing and my words tumbling out. To me, I find no difference in importance between my blog postsfan fiction, novels, nonfiction, poems, and songwriting. They're pieces that are mostly inspired by the dead end hill I grew up on. They're all parts of me, and I'm thrilled to share them with you.
