Candice Petrocova completed her formal studies in English, art history, classical music, and naturopathy. She began her career as a preschool teacher, but her life took an unexpected turn when she met a math scientist and engineer who urged her to pursue a career as an author. She is inspired by historic individuals such as prolific inventor Nikola Tesla; genius artists Michelangelo and Vincent van Gogh; civil rights activists Maya Angelou, Dorothy Height, and Martin Luther King; and the beauty and grace of her favorite actress, Sophia Loren.
Candice began to write when she was seven years old. By the time she was sixteen she wrote her first full novel, and since then she has written over a dozen novels spanning the genres of human interest, romance, mystery, and crime. The GHOST OF VINCENT VAN GOGH - A Love Story is her first published work, and nine more novels are soon to be published. She describes herself as a storyteller, weaving individuals from all spectrums of life together into characters who are deeply complex and different, yet in the end, showing how similar we all are as human beings. Her goal is to convey deep meaning and life lessons in every story she writes.
Candice has also written two original screenplays. Her personal interests include anything to do with the sea, vintage and foreign films, photography, historical paintings, classical music, humanitarian organizations, salsa dancing, and compassion and care for animals.
