Antoinette Candela was born and raised in Upstate New York and is an avid New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys fan. As a child, she enjoyed reading and writing and penned her first story at the age of thirteen. She drives fast, is a neat freak, loves Scrabble and can't live without her iced coffee and a good pen. When she's not planted in front of her computer writing, she can be found at the gym or at the beach soaking up the rays and enjoying a good book. Currently she lives in Massachusetts and is working on her fourth novel Love is Torture.
