Jaye Helm - Pirate Author
|Vero Beach Pirate Festival||
Jaye Helm’s love for writing started at the age of sixteen.
She began her career as an author writing poetry and children’s stories – her earliest poem published several years ago. Coloring her love of reading is the historical flare found in the 18th-century Caribbean with pirates.
Jaye can be found dressed up in authentic clothing from the Golden Age of Piracy, frequenting Pirate Festivals all over the U.S. In fact, that is how she met her muse and sweetheart, Arthur.
Jaye lives in Georgia with her soul mate, her horse named Shooting the Moon, and various other animals. Jaye’s love of animals of all kind translates into her passion for animal rights and rescue. She is currently writing the second book in the Sarafina series.
Her current books are the extension of a long history of writing. She has published poetry and continues to add to her collection of stories and poems that she plans to publish in the near future.
Jaye Helm is one of the world’s most unique authors. She actually lives the subject of which she writes. She weaves a magical tale during the Golden Age of Pirates through the eyes of Sarafina. Being an author of another time period takes research that is a labor of love.
But Jaye has another edge.
She lives the life of a pirate of that time period most days. She loves the art of traveling to perform as a period reenactor, and her favorite time period is that of her protagonist, Sarafina.
You will often find Jaye dressed from stem to stern and living as pirates lived. If you’re fortunate enough to catch her at one of her live performances, you’ll never view pirate life the same again.
The Sarafina series came about as a result of a challenge from a reenactor friend who also lives the life of a pirate. She includes characters in her books that are very real for her as she works with them.
The books a great read for ages 12 and above. She weaves the tales with intrigue, smatterings of laughter, and many action-packed adventures. After being transformed back to the early 1700s, Sarafina must find her way living in a difficult century of cutthroat pirates while trying to find her way back to her own time.
The Festival will provide a platform to help several charitable organizations who support the local community.
