Born: Candace's birth year is mysteriously difficult to find.
Excellent Books: Clever Jack Takes the Cake, and over 20 others. Many have won awards.
From Her Life: Candace has always considered herself a storyteller. Her parents encouraged her to write down even her early stories, and she still has the notebooks with those stories in them. As a mother she discovered the world of writing books for children, and has loved it ever since.
Advice for Aspiring Writers: At a school visit Candace once said, "The best tools for writing are your eyes, ears and your imagination." She could have listed many other tools, from a computer to a dictionary, but she chose tools that truly empower the writer. (quote from a teacher's blog)
