J.E. Stamper is the author of Ugly Me, a stunningly written fictional tale based on the real-life experiences of real students, and its sequel Perennial Girl. He is a public school educator and author who lives in Virginia with his amazing wife and their incredible children. He is plagued by senseless optimism, an overactive imagination, and an insatiable appetite for nerdy crap (you know, like wizards and lasers and stuff), all of which he channels into his writing, hoping to bring a little more joy and understanding into the world. His fantasy novels include A Fool’s Venture: Burrows & Beasts: Book 1 and The Paladin’s Curse: Burrows & Beasts: Book 2.
Ugly Me is a touching, entertaining, “I read it in one sitting”-worthy look at the issues of childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences. The book series is touted as a “must read for all students, parents, and teachers.”
