Candace loves to read as well as write. "It's about sitting down and escaping into another world," she says.

It's always been her wish to bring enjoyment to others. It was her enjoyment of a particular good book that led her to put pen to paper.

"There is nothing more rewarding than making someone smile," Candace says, "or chuckle…or touching their hearts with my work."

When she is not writing or reading, she enjoys gardening, crafts, and traveling, especially to the places where she sets her books.
