Candace Camp, born into a newspaper family, began writing fiction at the age of ten.
She wrote her first novel, Bonds of Love, while she was in law school at the University of North Carolina, and she soon gave up the practice of law to devote her time to writing.
Originally writing under the pseudonyms of Lisa Gregory and Kristin James, Candace now writes under her own name for Pocket books.
Her novels have been set in a variety of times and places, but her favorite period is Regency England.
Candace lives in Austin, Texas, and is married to Pete Hopcus. Her daughter, Anastasia Hopcus, is a writer of young adult novels.
