About Me

C.A. (Candy) Simonson has always had a love for words. She started writing stories as a child and even won a contest for writing in the third grade. (See the story in Stories to Read: “The Budding of a Writer.” Her first published piece was a poem in a national magazine at age 17. That was enough to get her hooked.

She is an award-winning author, editor, and writer of fiction and nonfiction short stories, articles and books. She has over 200 publications nationally in anthologies, newspapers, magazines, and other tabloids. She has been the editor of a monthly newsletter for five companies over the years, is a frequent contributor to online publications, and had a monthly column in a national magazine called “Quick & Easy Cookin’.” In her day jobs, she has been a technical writer for several companies.Her books are available in paperback and digital format on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

When she is not writing, she is painting, crafting, or fishing in her back yard pond.
