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

Monroe, Woman2Woman Book Club member.
