Candy Rae

Biography

Candy Rae has been an avid reader since childhood, with fantasy and science fiction appearing on her bookshelf in her first year of university when a friend introduced her to talking dragons. All her life, she has wanted to write, but it wasn’t until Christmas Day in 2003 that she sat down and started planning the book that, after many revisions, became the first book in the Planet Wolf series: Wolves and War.

As a former accountant, Candy was notorious among her family for elongating her commute home by parking in a safe space and starting to write, having got into the habit of carrying a notebook with her wherever she went, a habit she continues to this day. When she’s not writing, her hobbies include knitting, tapestry, and trying to figure out ‘whodunnit’ in murder mysteries.

Candy lives in Ayrshire, Scotland, with her large black cat, Sammy, and her Labrador-Corgi cross, Alex. She writes her books in British English with a Scottish flavour.

Series

The Multiverse Muddle
This world is not ours alone. We share it with the Cuetiachtli, the Children of the Gods. The Goddess Flidais has charged the kindred of our world, the Faie, with defending us from her vindictive sister, Cailleach, whose determination to take the place of Flidais would have devastating consequences should she succeed. The Faie must work together with the kindred of other worlds to protect the Sixth World from the threat of Cailleach. But with the importance of heritage, the eerie foreshadowing of ancient texts, and the finicky nature of the multiverse to contend with, working together is the least of their troubles.

  • 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!
  • Symbiosis on April 01, 2011

    A very cleverly crafted story and well written. I enjoyed it a lot
  • 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.
  • Legend of the White Dragon: Legacies on April 01, 2011

    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
  • Legend of the White Dragon: Destiny on April 13, 2011

    Like the others in the series, this is a must have read.
  • Enigma of the Second Coming on Oct. 23, 2011
