About the author

C. Bailey Sims was born in California and as a teenager moved to the

Colorado Rockies where she attended a very small high school, learned how

to ski race, ride a horse, mountain climb, and target shoot at tin cans. She now

lives with her family in the much tamer but equally beautiful hills of Connecticut

in a very creative household of artists and musicians.

Of Candlewax she says, “This was a book that I had to write. Spelopokos

wouldn’t leave me alone until I finished it.”
