Hello everyone! I'm Ciarán! I'm a 29-year-old guy living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am an autistic crafter and writer and a service dog handler. I have a BA in English and have been doing various forms of fiber art for the past two decades and consider myself quite adept at both of these major interests in my life! I've been using social media for years to connect with other people like me and provide the bulk of the social experiences I currently have and to advertise the art and writing I do. I've decided to give Patreon a go both for more reach and because I think it will provide a better avenue for self-organization for my work, as spreading out over multiple platforms is not very compatible with the way my executive dysfunction manifests.

The majority of what I can offer is the results of my art, either as premade or custom items or patterns for creating your own, and both fiction and non-fiction writing. As far as fiction goes, you can expect to see a good amount of horror and fantasy from me. I particularly enjoy writing about and from the perspective of animals and other non-humans. In the non-fiction camp, you'll see mostly essays and information I can provide on some of my less common life experiences, such as being autistic, being transgender, and being a service dog handler. I like to share what I learn from my first hand experiences in the hopes that it will be useful to other people. 

If you decide to become a patron, thank you! The rewards I currently have are just preliminary and I'm hoping to add more as I get feedback and hear more from you about what you would like to see and recieve. Please let me know!
