A pro writer since the 3rd grade when she won the state title in a national essay contest, Candi’s unique combination of skills matches the needs of aspiring authors who have a tale to tell but no understanding of the publishing industry or flair for forming the right words. Candi’s clients range from execs and entertainers, to doctors and attorneys, from as far away as China, England, Japan and Germany. As ghostwriter and/or editor, Candi has co-developed 100+ books published by McGraw-Hill Professional, Sloan Publishing, Writer’s Digest Books, Springer UK, Future Horizons, and self-publishing outlets. She is committed to helping diverse individuals with contemporary stories to tell—no theme is too provocative, no message too controversial unless it propagates harm toward others.
Since serving as a private writer is always an intimate, honorable affair, Candi is praised for both her Southern warmth and compassion and Northern no-nonsense punctuality and execution. She actively maintains offices in Atlanta and Manhattan.
In the earlier years of her career, Candi’s most notable coverage as a reporter includes women’s roles in war, featuring Benazir Bhutto (d. 2007), former Prime Minister of Pakistan, the illicit trade of sex trafficking featuring Zana Briski, Academy Award-winning filmmaker for “Born Into Brothels: Calcutta’s Red Light Kids,” the South’s 25-year history of civil rights featuring Congressman John Lewis (D-Ga.), and Brazil’s rise from poverty as a dominant renewable energy provider.
