Candy lives in Ayrshire, Scotland with her family and two four year old cats who still think they are kittens. She has been a fan of fantasy fiction (and sci-fi as long as it isn't too technical) since her first year at university when a friend introduced her to talking dragons.
She started to write on Christmas Day 2003 when she sat down and planned out her first book which (after many revisions) became the first book in the Planet Wolf Series, Wolves and War.
Candy works in accountancy, scribbles words in amongst the figures and carries a notebook everywhere she goes (in which she writes down ideas and stories). She has been known to drive off the motorway, park the car in the first available safe spot and write for an hour or more.
Candy writes her books in British English. Originally a language of mainland Europe, through the centuries it evolved in England and Southern Scotland before spreading around the world. Added to the basic standards, many national versions are recognised, including American English and British English, which have some grammatical differences and a number of spelling differences.

Ms. Rae Finds a way to combine a set of odd elements into a wonderful book. The story is gripping to say the least, I finished it in two days, much to the detriment of my schedule. As an American reader, I found the British sensibilities of the characters refreshing, so don't be afraid to give it a read if you're from the states.
