Author gives back to kids for Bluewater Foundation charity event
Author, Cosplayer, and Podcaster Jaime Engle will work with youth at the Color Me Healthy 5K Run/Walk to raise money for YMCA scholarship funds through the Bluewater Foundation, hosted by Viera Voice. Engle will work with kids at her booth sharing storytelling techniques alongside Kitt Kane, retired Horizons teacher from Suntree Elementary School, and Engle’s books will be available for purchase with personalized autographs provided.
Engle pens cutting-edge storytelling for fans of the supernatural and has published 6 novels under her brand JME Books. Her anti-bullying children’s book Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light was awarded a BRAG Medallion in 2015 and listed as a Top 10 Book in 2014 by Kid Lit Reviews. The Dredge won honorable mentions in the Writers of the Future Award and Dreadlands: Wolf Moon is up for a Nebula, Tiptree, and Florida Sunshine State Award for 2016. She is an active speaker in schools across the state.
“I love storytelling. It’s part of my books, my cosplay, my podcasts, and everything I do,” shares Engle. “Having the chance to work with kids and give them tips on telling their story is an unbelievable gift that I feel blessed to receive.”
