Candice Marley Conner grew up between swamps, a river, and the Gulf Coast, so her stories emerge from gnarled cypress knees, muddy water, and salty air. She is the kidlit haint at a haunted indie bookstore (but not haunted how you’re thinking), a Local Liaison for SCBWI, and an officer for her local writer’s guild. Her short stories and poems are in various anthologies and magazines including Cabinet of CuriositiesUnder The Full Moon’s LightHighlights HelloBabybugChicken Soup For The Soul, and more. Her picture book, SASSAFRAS AND HER TEENY TINY TAIL and her YA Southern mystery, The Existence of Bea Pearl, both debuted in June, 2021. She lives in Alabama with her husband and two children (one of whom is possibly feral).

She’s represented by the fabulous Katelyn Detweiler of Jill Grinberg Literary Management.
