About Me

Posted September 29th, 2011 by Candice


Simple and direct is better:  I’m the author of more than 150 children’s books, including Amanda Panda Quits Kindergarten, Amanda Panda and the Bigger, Better Birthday, Tooth Fairy’s Night, Snow Day, Terrier Trouble, Iva Honeysuckle Discovers the World and Rebel McKenzie.  I’m a ninth generation Virginian on both sides.  I collect far too much vintage stuff.  I don’t like this century (and wasn’t any none too crazy about the last half of the last one, either).  Here, I talk about writing and reading, and sometimes about just plain old living.
