About Me



Candice Sue Patterson studied at the Institute of Children’s Literature and is an active member of American Christian Fiction Writers. She lives in Indiana with her husband and three sons in a restored farmhouse overtaken by books. When she’s not tending to her chickens, watching her kids play sports, or helping children discover a love for reading as an elementary librarian, she’s working on a new story. Candice writes Modern Vintage Romance. She is represented by Linda S. Glaz of Hartline Literary Agency.


Not only do I love spending time with the fictional people in my head, I also love to get lost in a good book. I’m a Sunday school teacher, a hobby farmer, a sucker for Hallmark movies, and my kitchen is open 24-hours. I love to travel. Some of my most memorable vacations include hiking all the way to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, white water rafting, horseback riding in Wyoming, and traveling the entire coast of Maine.

I also love to read, eat dessert, and sit on my front porch and listen to the waterfall in my goldfish pond. I can’t survive without coffee or bubble baths.
