Candace CalvertWelcome to my website!

Folks like to call me the author of “medical hope opera”-- I couldn’t be more pleased. Long (and colorful) years as an ER nurse convinced me that love, laughter and faith are the very best medicines. And that’s exactly what I offer in my Mercy Hospital and Grace Medical series: unforgettable characters, adrenalin-infused action, humor, heartwarming romance, and an encouraging message of hope. In these challenging times, just what the doctor ordered. So grab a cup of cyber-coffee and take your time browsing: read my bio (nurse to trauma victim to inspirational author) and check out the free first chapters, reviews and extras.

While you’re here, sign up for my quarterly e-mail Newsletter. I offer updates of coming books, insights into the writing life, and the occasional mouth-watering recipe. To interact with a lively group of fellow readers and have an opportunity to participate in fun giveaways, please “Like” my FaceBook Fan Page.

And do stop by my new blog, Authors’ Galley: Manuscripts & Wooden Spoons, for book-talk, food fun, recipes—and great weekly glimpses into some of your favorite authors’ kitchens. Giveaways too!

I love getting to know my readers, so feel free to drop me a note any time via my Contact Page.

As always, I’m happy to send free bookmarks and bookplates; just let me know. And (new, also free) I can now personalize and “sign” your e-books via Authorgraph. How cool is that?”

It’s a delight to connect with libraries, church groups, and Book Clubs—let's Skype!

Thank you for stopping by. I’m honored to have you “scrub in.”

Happy reading!

12/19/2013 05:22 PM: Sugar & Spice, and Everything . . . Nuts

A week before Christmas, and I'm crossing off lists, thumbing through recipes, and decorating everything that stands still.  Inside: And outside, too: When I was climbing the ladder to hang these oversize ornaments on our bare crepe myrtle tree, a (very wise) neighbor called out, "Be careful up there!"--probably heard the rumor about my acorn-ankle incident. Sigh. Infamous. ... read more
