Candy Rae

Biography

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.

  • Legend of the White Dragon: Legends on April 01, 2011

    Really excellent book, so good that I've bought the rest of the series and can't wait to read them. Well written and the story makes you not want to put it down until you've read just one more page!
  • Love Immortal on April 01, 2011

    I was nervous about reading this book. Vampires scare me (a throwback to the black and white horror films from my youth) but the reveiews were good so I downloaded it to give it a try. So very glad that I took the change. This was great book and like the other reviewers I am looking forward to the next one.

    I've spent the most part of this day reading this book after enjoying the previous one, nor was I disappointed ... it's even better! Well done Melanie
