Candy J. Moon grew up in Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Stratford-upon-Avon. She began writing The Magic Rainbow Stone in 1999, after buying a fluorite dolphin figurine which gave the idea for her crystal characters. It was finally finished and published a whole fifteen years later in 2014. The next two books in the series swiftly followed. Her latest offering - Stage Door - is a lighthearted young adult chick lit series about eighteen-year-old Yazmin who works in a theatre box office and gets to party with actors!
