Helping Teens with Epilepsy

IMG_0347Rogue House and Authors For Charity has been helping teens with epilepsy since 2013 by sponsoring the activity club for teens with epilepsy. A big part of Jennifer Loiske’s royalties along with all royalties of Authors For Charity go to charity. The reason why the activity club has been chosen a part of their charity is that they think it is just as important to help teens with disabilities to go out and do normal things, than to help them medically. Sometimes things that are obvious for a healthy kid, such as friends, going to the movies, participating in parties, can be quite challenging for someone who differ from the others.

So bringing these teens together, helping them find friends and supporting their act of becoming independent has been Rogue House and Authors For Charity’s way of bringing a hint of magic into someone’s life. To show, they matter, and that there is life ‘outside of the four walls’.

So thank you, reader, for making this possible! Every time you buy a book published by Rogue House, you are helping us to help.

9781291306019_p0_v1_s260x420Authors For Charity will also donate all profits coming from their book, Tales of an Old Wizard, to Children’s Epilepsy Unit, in Turku University Hospital, Finland, until their second book, Paranormal Love, is published. After the publication the charity will be changed to help a cancer unit in Sussex, England.

About jenniferloiske

Jennifer Loiske lives in Finland in Naantali, which is a small sunny town on the southwest coast. She is a pre-school teacher by profession but she stayed at home when her youngest daughter suffered brain fever, which developed severe epilepsy in 2004. She is a workaholic Teen/Young Adult author, who loves dark fantasy, teen movies, chips and candies and warm sunny days. She’s also very keen on charity work and a big part of her royalties goes to the charity; mainly to help families with epileptic children but also to the epilepsy units in the hospitals. As a huge fan of dark novels Jennifer's bookshelf is full of books from L.J. Smith, Alyson Noel, Stephanie Meyer, Chloe Neill, Michelle Rowen, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Amanda Hocking and Lauren Kate. She’s also a huge fan of music from Evanescence, Linkin Park, Within Temptation, OneRepublic and Disturbed. But her hunger for music is endless and depend on what mood she’s in or what kind of book she’s working on. She can be pretty much an omnivore when it comes to music.
