Words of Encouragement | Words of Inspiration | Words of Gratitude
Throughout her own spiritual path and writing career, Candy has been highly influenced by Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Transcendentalists; mystics of all traditions; Christian writers like Kathleen Norris, Henri Nouwen, and Thomas Merton; Zen/Buddhist writers like Thich Nhat Hanh and Chogyam Trungpa; Sufi writers; soulful writers; artists and visionaries; and many New Thought writers.
Candy shares her home in Nashville Tennessee with her kitty, Emma, and stacks upon stacks of books. She believes that books have a life of their own, and her lifetime collection lines the walls of several rooms. Candy is also a musician/songwriter who is part of an inspiring creative community and enjoys a spiritually diverse group of friends.
