My name is Candice Sharelle Dorsey (C. S. Dorsey for short) I am twenty-six years old, and I am from the SF Bay Area, California. I do not have children at this time, but I am planning on having a family one day. Right now I am having a blast being single. I am the only child, which comes in handy at times when you want to get your way. I am very much involved in church, and I like doing church activities. I live with my best friend and mother. She has been my support system since May 17th 1984.
English has always been a subject that I excelled in. Though I did not major in English, Axia College of University of Phoenix has prepared me for the writing world. Writing an essay almost every week was something that I had not expected, but the writing work outs helped a lot. Receiving my Associated Degree in Financial Services has been, besides my novel, one of my biggest accomplishments.
Reading is very important to me. I not only read for enjoyment, but I read to learn new things. One of my favorite authors is Lisa McMann. I think the Wake trilogy is brilliant and has a voice of its own, which sets her work apart from others.
The Unsacred Gift is my first novel. The character Sicily “Sissy” Monroe was created because she would not stop talking to me. The girl sound did scared and alone so I wrote down everything she said. I know what it’s like to fear something that is seems to be abnormal. So I felt that it was a need to tell her story.
