Featured Author Interview: Candace Calvert

Candace Calvert is the author of medical hope opera and believes that love, laughter, and faith are the best medicines. 

Picture
A former ER nurse, wife, Mom and proud grandmother, her popular medical fiction offers charismatic characters, pulse-pounding drama, romance, humor, suspense--and a prescription for hope. Think, “Grey’s Anatomy finds its soul.” 
Candace writes inspirational fiction because God blessed her with a quirky wit, buoyant optimism, and a contagious sense of fun--but she didn’t come to know him until after some challenges in her life. From those, she came to fully understand the difference between being a strong woman and a woman of strength. The difference is faith, and that lesson has been her biggest blessing.
 
The following is a May 2014 interview with Candace.
