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.
