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.”
