I'm an avid reader and writer, always seeking to learn more. When I'm not working on reading, writing and marketing, I'm pursuing my other passions: scuba diving, animal welfare, environmental activism, and travel.

I am an assistant to a well-known author, and a permanent consultant for the nonprofit, Next Generation Nepal.

If you're interested in collaborating with me, feel free to get in touch.

Candice Landau hasn't written any blog posts yet.

Carl Sagan
“What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."

[Cosmos, Part 11: The Persistence of Memory (1980)]”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Barry  Lopez
“Something, most certainly, happens to a diver’s emotions underwater. It is not merely a side effect of the pleasing, vaguely erotic sensation of water pressure on the body. Nor is it alone the peculiar sense of weightlessness, which permits a diver to hang motionless in open water, observing sea life large as whales around him; not the ability of a diver, descending in that condition, to slowly tumble and rotate in all three spatial planes. It is not the exhilaration from disorientation that comes when one’s point of view starts to lose its “lefts” and “down” and gains instead something else, a unique perception that grows out of the ease of movement in three dimensions. It is not from the diminishment of gravity to a force little more emphatic than a suggestion. It is not solely exposure to an unfamiliar intensity of life. It is not a state of rapture with the bottomless blue world beneath one’s feet…it is some complicated mix of these emotions, together with the constant proximity of real terror.”
Barry Lopez, About This Life

Robert Kurson
“In the United States, of the ten million certified scuba divers, it is likely that only a few hundred dive deep for shipwrecks. To those few, it is not a matter of if they will taste death, only of whether they'll swallow.”
Robert Kurson, Shadow Divers

Jennifer Arnett
“It isn’t always the treasure that drives men down deep into the sea; it’s something else, something unexplainable, even to them.”
Jennifer Arnett, Into Her Chambers

John Waters
“If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em!”
John Waters
