W. Bradford Swift – Visionary Author Joins Patreon

As a writer with over 25 years of professional experience and 22 years as a life and business coach, I combine these unique talents to help aspiring and emerging writers to make a difference as they express their life purpose through the power of the written word.

I also enjoy connecting with readers who love a good story that entertains while also enlightening and encouraging them to live their own life on purpose. I call that visionary fiction. If you love a good nonfiction book that both enlightens and encourages you in your life while also being entertaining, that’s visionary nonfiction, and this is the place for you as well!

I became an avid reader of visionary fiction and nonfiction including fantasy and science fiction as an eleven-year-old boy when my next-door neighbor, who was a children’s librarian, took pity on my single-parent mom. Bored out of my gourd with no one to play with but good ‘ol mom, I drove her crazy until Mrs. Crabtree brought home a stack of books she knew would hook a young boy and give my mom some relief. It worked. I’ve been hooked ever since.

For the past two decades I’ve been conducting an experiment. Is it possible to create a new context for my life that I feel is “divinely inspired” and true to my deepest values, my sense of what’s possible, and true to my soul and spirit? If it is possible, what will be the results? Will it enhance my life? Will I experience a true sense of purpose and meaning? Will I know at the end of the experiment that my life has mattered?

Becoming a writer of visionary fiction and non-fiction has been an integral part of this experiment, as was co-founding Life On Purpose Institute with my wife in 1996, being a coach to assist others to create their own life on purpose experiment, and training other Life On Purpose Coaches.

Since selling my veterinary practice in the late 80’s to pursue a career as a writer and life coach, I’ve published over 350 magazine articles in such publications as Family Fun, Boys’ Life, Body and Soul (then New Age Journal), Yoga Journal, and Better Homes and Garden, to mention just a few. Many of these have been part of my pet writing project: Project Purpose: to write and publish articles about people whose lives are dedicated to a bold and inspiring purpose or vision.

As a patron you help me with my creative art — to write stories and books that entertain, encourage and inspire readers to a new possibility for life.
