Local Author Brings Magic and Message to Students

Jaimie M. Engle to speak at Longleaf Elementary School


Melbourne, FL, January 27th, 2015: "A man of genius has a right to any mode of expression."—Ezra Pound

Longleaf Elementary School will bring author Jaimie M. Engle on campus to speak about her anti-bullying adventure novel Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light on Tuesday, January 27th. After sharing, Engle will autograph books for students and answer questions about writing and literacy. 

Her program, which highlights the Common Core Standards to help assist teachers, makes students consider the power of their words in life and literature. Engle will return that evening to engage parents with their children during Family Night to include improve, games, and fun.  

“Kids who read, lead,” said Brevard County’s anti-bullying advocate Jaimie M. Engle. “My books are meant to inspire, empower, and entertain the next generation of leaders by reminding everyone that with #everykidsvoice we can #targetbullying to stop it!”

Here’s more about the book and accomplishments of the author:

  • Fantasy Adventure Author, Jaimie M. Engle –Clifton Chase is the latest target for bully Ryan Rivales. But after he finds a mysterious arrow in his closet, he takes Ryan's bet to see who can hit the target. Ryan nails the bull's-eye, but Clifton's piece of junk arrow sails out of sight into the Hinterland, a place of sand spurs, fire ants, and roots to trip on. He finally finds his arrow, but something isn't right. Somehow, Clifton has been magically transported back to 1485 England, where he meets two princes bullied by their tyrant uncle who locked them in prison to steal their throne. Only after Clifton learns the true meaning of friendship, bravery, and sacrifice can he help the princes escape and find the courage to face his own bully. Befriended by a dwarf, a mythical bird called Simurgh, and a cast of comical characters, Clifton's adventure through medieval times is perfect for boys and girls 8+ who enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia & Percy Jackson. Winner of the L. Ron Hubbard’s Writer’s of the Future Competition and featured on The Dr. Laura Program & Writer’s Digest online.
