She has two other titles published with New Frontier Publishing’s Little Rocket series for children ‘Silver the Silly Sorcerer’ and ‘Hubert and the Magic Glasses’ which was chosen as a best new release title by the ABA (Australian Booksellers Association). She also published a Pearson Education fiction title ‘The Day the Energies Saved the World’ in November 2013, which was a winning title in the EPAA (Educational Publishing Australia Awards) 2014 in the category of best primary resource.

Candice’s adult novel ‘Unloched,’ that received a commendation for an unpublished manuscript in the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards 2007, is published with Odyssey Books.  Her young adult novel ‘Clearwing’ received a highly commended placing in the 2015 CYA Conference competition for published authors.

Her first book for children ‘Stinky Ferret & the JJs’ was published in May 2008.

Her quirky style, fast-paced narrative and originality appeals to reluctant boy readers in particular.
