Candice Poarch takes pride in crafting believable stories featuring African-American heroes and heroines. The characters in her books demonstrate a strong sense of community and family support. She firmly believes that everyday life in America (whether small town or major metropolitan city) has its own rich rewards. She also likes telling stories that will leave today’s busy reader feeling refreshed and hopeful—not always an easy task, she says, but well worth the challenge.
Her fourteenth book, BITTERSWEET, (Dafina, July, 2006) deals with the heart, family, extended family and community.

Candice Poarch’s fifteenth book, SWEET SOUTHERN COMFORT, will be published by Kimani Press in November, 2006.
