"To have a reader live vicariously in a world I've built, through the characters I've created; worry about them, cheer for them and cry with them, is an amazing gift. "

Candy is a member of the Sisters In Crime, Kiss of Death, Heart of Carolina Romance Writers, and She Writes.

She resides in North Carolina with her true life hero, three dogs, a cat and a goat.

Stephen King
“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.”
Stephen King

Jim Butcher
“Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.”
Jim Butcher, Storm Front

Jim Butcher
“I had to smile at the man. I mean, you have to smile at idiots and children.”
Jim Butcher, Fool Moon

Jim Butcher
“The building was on fire, and it wasn’t my fault.”
Jim Butcher, Blood Rites

Shannon K. Butcher
“If you hurt her I'll make you pay. I may be old, but that doesn't mean I can't make you suffer."

"Damn right. You've got the AARP on your side.”
Shannon K. Butcher, Burning Alive
