Artist Spotlight: Nadine Abrahams 📚 🔮Nadine loves storytelling, reading, fantasy, archery, and Role-playing games. Her first poem was published in high school. The characters in her Stars Fallen Series haunted her, leading her to write at a young age. In 2004, she published her novel Primal Heartbeat but lacked confidence to market it. With support from her loved ones, she revisited the book, sought an editor, and got back on track. Miblart brought her envisioned characters to life on the cover.Inspired by her child's struggles with writing, she created the inclusive role-playing game Muintir. It embraces acceptance, disregarding appearance and identity, making it accessible and affordable with standard dice. The simplified mechanics are friendly to those with learning disabilities. In Muintir's world, everyone is important, and hidden talents of those with disabilities are admired.She also authored the children's magical adventure Ad' Astra, where readers explore a mysterious store and its enchanting goods. She collaborated with an artist from Xlibris, who visualized her descriptions.Be sure to visit Nadine and grab a book at AVCon 2023!
