About Candice Raquel Lee

I was born in Brooklyn in one of the worst neighborhoods man has ever created. All other details are kind of fuzzy, thank God, except that at times I was happy there. I am mixed raced and mixed cultured. The primary culprits in my creation are Native American, Jewish, European and African-American. I think that is why I write mixed-up stories. I like to mix reality with fantasy, the sacred and the profane, the illuminating with the infuriating. I am also one of the last Romantics living. That is why I write stories about love (not lust.) I write about love of one soul for another. I write poetically and deeply. I write about longing and people who are pure of heart. I am primarily from a different time (somewhere around the Late Romantic period. They would have loved my stuff!) When I am not writing, I read classics and am trying to build a time machine, so I can go back home.

I also have a sense of humor.
I am also very appreciative. Thanks to all of you who enjoyed my books and took the time to rate or review or like me on Facebook. If you didn't, now's a great opportunity to do so.

I liked the poetic language and the funny twist at the end.

Review by: berima on March 8, 2016 :
The Sword Trick is simply written with a fairy tale air. Ms Lee deftly introduces a modern feel for a traditional setting, develops a nice tension that leaves the reader wondering where she's going, and rewards them with a satisfying twist.

Ms Lee you could do more with this. The language could be tightened (I am struggling to imagine a town opening "like a flower"), and the motif of the sword trick is left hanging.

But you used the word credulous very neatly which is not easy to do, and the basis of the tale is sound.
