Unlike some authors, Candace C. Bowen can pinpoint the exact date her writing career began. On March 17, 2008, she witnessed deaf Actress Marlee Matlin’s amazing performance on Dancing With the Stars. Inspired, she realized that out of the hundreds of romance novels she had read over the years, not one of them featured a deaf Heroine. Selecting her favorite time-period in history, Candace formed a rough outline to the story that would become her first historical romance, A KNIGHT OF SILENCE. Fortunate to find a home for her novel, it is now available at most book retailers through Seven Realms Publishing.
Finding inspiration in the strangest of places, the idea for her second novel came to Candace as she held two medieval religious medals. Literally written as she typed, her paranormal time travel romance, SPUR OF THE MOMENT, was born. Fortunate once again, the novel has been picked-up by Rhemalda Publishing. It's sequel, WICKED EMBERS, followed shortly after.
A KNIGHT OF BATTLE, the second volume in the Knight Series is scheduled for a November 2012 release through Seven Realms Publishing.
Her third completed suspense romance novel, JACK OF HEARTS, surrounds the infamous Ripper murders in Victorian England and has been contrracted with Seven Realms Publishing for a 2013 release.
A KNIGHT OF VALOUR, the third volume in the Knight Series is scheduled for a late 2013 release.
Candace also has a pirate tale lined-up covering the daring exploits of Ireland’s Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley.
Her teenage imagination pervaded by the works of Stephen King, Candace is also working on her first horror novel, VOODOO FIRE. Set in present-day New Orleans during Mardi Gras, the story follows a group of college kids encountering more than they bargained for when they conduct a séance beside the tomb of the infamous voodoo queen, Marie Laveau.
