Author has written 10 stories for Ninja Turtles.

My name is Candace I'm a Leo and was born in the year of the ox. I'm pretty quiet until someone gets to know me, I prefer to blend into the background rather than be the most popular. I keep a close group of friends and I'm happy with that. I'd do anything for my friends and family no matter what it was, I'm loyal to a fault and I'm quick to stand up for myself or anyone else I care about. I work full time doing data entry for beauty products, and love my job and the people I work with. It's great. When I'm not doing that I enjoy reading - or cross stitching, and have recently been designing my own cross stitch designs, my most recent two are of the 2003 Ninja turtles. I just finished the first after six months of hard work and have started on the second.

I also have every single TMNT movie on DVD and saw the CGI movie when it was released a couple times with my friends. I don't care if I am in my 20's I love the turtles. My family find my love for the turtles quite amusing since I never outgrew them - but I don't mind I will always love the turtles! I loved the 2003 TMNT series even better than the 1980's, though I still find the 1980's version quite funny. I go back and rewatch the 1980's version and find them even funnier than I did back when I was a kid because I actually understand what they are talking about now. Sometimes they seem very silly to me and that makes me laugh even harder, and a lot of the time I find the plots silly now, but that doesn't mean I don't love the characters anyway.

For me the 2003 series was what I feel the turtles should be, not so silly, not always concerned with pizza, but the down to earth heroes of the comic books. So I've collected those DVD's as well, and while I might have gotten them for when I have kids of my own, I still enjoy watching them myself. I find them funny and serious all at the same time. I love Michelangelo's sense of humor and how he's always trying to find a punch line or throw in a movie or TV reference whenever he thinks the timing is appropriate. I love Donatello's inventions and how subtle their vehicles are in the new series - it makes them more secret when they are out on the streets in a car that doesn't have ninja turtles or just turtles printed on the side. And Raphael and Leonardo have always been such amazing characters and I loved how serious and true to the comics they were in this series. I was very sad to see it end.

Anyway here's a little bit about me...

Favorite Color: Ocean blue

Favorite Music: Classic Rock - usually AC/DC or Metallica

Favorite TV Shows: Superntural, Master Chef, Kitchen Nightmares, 2003 TMNT, Wildfire

Favorite Domesticated Animal: I can't say because I love way too many. But need to be loyal to Priestly my Yorkie and I love the horse I ride Nikita.

Pets Living With Us: Priestly - Yorkshire Terrier and Jack - English Springer. Nikita - Black and white paint horse.

Favorite Books: Can't decide I've read way to many I love to read

Favorite Past Times: Reading, writing, playing with my dogs, cooking, cross stitching and horseback riding.

Favorite Turtle: I don't have a favorite I love them all the same for different reasons.

Favorite Wild Animal: That's another hard one as I love so many - but I'd say a tie between the wolf or the tiger.

Things I dislike: Rude people, animal abuse, people who kill for fur or fun.

Book I'm currently reading: None who has time to read these days? I certainly don't.

Favorite Movies: Hmm...I love a lot of movies I love the TMNT movies, Jurassic Park, Ten Inch Hero, My Bloody Valentine 3D...and way too many others to list here. I just love a good movie that can drag me away from real life for a while, and since I'm easily entertained that isn't hard to do.

Favorite Holiday: Thanksgiving, it's just a time I get to be with my family and be thankful for what I have been blessed with in this life.


Update 10/02/2014

Wow it's about time this thing was updated. Well I just finished the fourth in my romance series for the turtles, Leonardo's story will be the fourth story and I am currently working on that. Hopefully it will be posted next spring. That should give me enough time to get it written so my readers don't have to wait for weeks on end for an update.
