Candice Marley Conner grew up between swamps, a river, and the Gulf Coast, so her stories emerge from gnarled burrows, muddy water, and salty air. She’s a Local Liaison for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and published in Babybug Magazine and various anthologies, and forthcoming in Highlights Hello. A member of the #Newin19 debut group, her picture book, SASSAFRAS AND HER TEENY TINY TAIL, releases with MacLaren-Cochrane Publishing in 2019.
