Candace J. Carter has walked many paths in life. She served in the military, earned a degree in veterinary medicine, and worked for the National Park Service. Much of her professional career was spent with Threatened and Endangered species, including the black-footed ferret, Florida scrub-jay, and four species of sea turtles.

Her stories are drawn from these experiences. Growing up in a rural town, she was often found fishing, hunting, or horseback riding. She shared a love of watching western movies with her father. Her stories reflect small town life and the feeling of family shared by people in rural communities. Thanks to her father, there's a bit of the Old West in her stories, too.

She was awarded a Carrie McCray Memorial Literary Award

Highly Recommend

I really enjoyed this book. The setting invoked Tony Hillerman mysteries, but the humor sends it on another path. Naomi Many moons and her boss Carson make a great team. Kept me guessing until the end.
