This week I'd like to feature another of my amazing author friends. I had the pleasure of meeting Jaimie through the Brevard Renaissance Fair back in 2016. Jaimie is an amazing woman and a fearless advocate against bullying. Her books cover the subject of accepting people as they are and that is a subject I am equally passionate about. She also attends schools and does anti-bullying presentations. One of the things I love most about Jaimie is that she cosplays the characters from her books. She commissioned me to make a Viking shoulder piece for a character from her book "Dreadlands". It remains one of my favorite pieces and I always get such a thrill when I see her in it. If you are looking for someone to come speak to your school about the importance of acceptance and how to deal with bullies, I can recommend no one higher.

If you get the chance to try one of her candles, they are gorgeous and smell divine! I have two of them in my bathroom even as we speak.
Remember to support your local artists and authors and come back next week for my next featured friend!
