Candice Petrocova completed her formal studies in English, creative writing, and art history. She is inspired by historic individuals such as talented writers, Ernest Hemingway and Fyodor Dostoyevsky; prolific inventor, Nikola Tesla; genius artist, Michelangelo; civil rights activist, Martin Luther King; and the beauty and grace of her favorite actress, Sophia Loren.
At nine years of age, Candice wrote her first novel, and since then she has written over a dozen novels spanning the genres of literary, commercial, romance, mystery, and crime. She describes herself as a storyteller, weaving individuals from all spectrums of life together into characters who are deeply complex and different, yet in the end, showing how similar we all are as human beings. Her goal is to convey deep meaning and life lessons in every story she writes . . . “I really strive to take hold of my readers, make them feel something, entertain them with every page, yet teach them something in the process. It brings me great satisfaction to take the reader on a journey intertwined with a sincere message.”
Candice has also written two original screenplays. Her personal interests include the piano and violin, black-and-white photography, vintage and foreign films, historical paintings, anything to do with the sea, and compassion and care for animals. But her favorite pastime is lounging in a library surrounded by beautiful books.
