Tagline
Author, Journalist, Writer
Introduction
Candice's successful writing career has spanned over 20 years. Her published books include, "Stealing Homes," and Thank You for Firing Me!." Before her career in journalism, she lost jobs as an insurance salesperson, a funeral director, a singing/dancing waitress and an ice-cream binging weight-loss counselor. Currently, she is a freelance journalist, writes grants for credit unions, dabbles in copywriting and speechwriting, and once owned her own successful public relations firm. Reed has also been a ghostwriter for a former president, which she really can't talk about. Reed has published more than 5000 business features, personal essays and travel articles in newspapers and magazines including; The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Christian Science Monitor. Reed recently took her own advice and sold her expensive California home and moved to a cabin on Lake Chelan in Washington so she could enjoy life in the new economy.
