I’m Candy. I write mostly about parenting, midlife, and other issues on the minds of my fellow Gen Xers.

Occasionally I write on my blog, but mostly I work as a freelance writer. I’ve included samples of my work on the “other writing” page.

My favorite way to pass time when I’m not writing is to crochet. I don’t sell my work so I own an absurd number of hats and scarves.

My long-term projects include a contemporary women’s fiction novel and a memoir about growing up in a rural area of Arkansas, surviving cancer as a teenager, and my journey to motherhood.

Find me on Twitter or send me an email if you’d like to connect. I may even write on Substack from time to time — subscribe there and I’ll magically appear in your inbox.
