For her, It all started with a Lisa Frank notebook. She purchased her first journal, embarking on a creative journey that’s currently over 15 years in the making. As An Ohio native, she currently resides in North Carolina with plans to see and take the world by storm. Always obsessed with “capturing the present moment,” she nourished a passion for documentary filmmaking as an undergrad at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she was part of an award-winning multimedia team at The Daily Tar Heel.  

Since then, Candace has pursued many crafts. She has had work published in Glass Poetry Press, Quiet Circle Magazine, Bop Dead City, Yellow Chair Review and more. Her nonfiction credits include Urban Faith, The Huffington Post, CRWN Magazine, and MTV. In 2016, she self-published her first book called Letters About Losing You.
