A Little About Me:
Hi, I’m TJ Banski! Born in the Pacific Northwest with a beautiful view of Mount Rainier. I enjoy writing, music and art. I first began writing at a young age and well haven’t stopped. During a summer night in 2013, I had a dream of a secret world that was right under our noses. All from third person perspective I watched as a confused blond haired young man came faced to face with a creature one could only imagine in fairy tales or legends. The creature emerged from a brown hair young man only after being exposed through a sphere like chamber created from a device that tainted the known reality. Yet no one else could see what was happening. There in the middle of the sphere like chamber was a young woman with glowing eyes and wielding a force sword confronting the creature. I woke excitedly and immediately wrote down all the details I could about this dream. After encouragement from friends and family and a time crunch event during the month of November, known as National Write a Novel Month that I made this scene become it’s own creature of a book. I soon made it into the series of books soon to be. Outlining in progress.
The wielders book series in retrospect is what I call a mix of Avatar: the Last Air Bender meets The Mortal Instrument Series. A light vs dark, a discovery of one’s true potential and a love that transcends time are the radiating themes through out the series. The first novel takes place in pacific northwest in and around my home town Olympia. Many different places I have visited are places my characters have either met or encounter creatures from beyond.

Why Patreon you ask? In the recent years I have dedicated only a few moments to my novel series, long nights, weeks but it still wasn’t enough. It became difficult to find a balance and I had to tuck my novel away. With Patreon I can do the necessary research to travel to the places I have written about, write more content with connections I make with fans, experiences I have and hire a graphics designer to help market my book. I wanted to write this series to bring a little more fantasy to everyday life. Fantasy books such as Harry Potter Series, Immortal Instrument Series, and the Dresden Files have really helped me escape from reality even if for a little while and sometimes come back with a different perspective. The authors of these series have really inspired me to continue writing. My hope is to inspire young writers to keep writing and follow their dreams. Let’s go!
