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, splitting wood, or decorating cakes, she’s working on a new story. Candice writes Modern Vintage Romance—where the past and present collide with faith.

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’m a lover of all animals, but no furry creature hold my heart like my good friend Baby Kitty (original name, I know…).

I love to scrapbook, eat desserts, and play board games (only if I win). I can’t survive without coffee, and I detest housework and alarm clocks.
