    Today, Candace is the versatile and acclaimed author of more than forty books for children and young adults, including the Los Angeles Times Book Prize honored The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of the Russian Empire; Boston Globe/Horn Book Award-winning biography, The Lincolns; the bestselling picture book, Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!; the Sibert-Award-winning Giant Squid; and the beloved Boxes for Katje. She contributed the chapter on Katharine of Aragon to Fatal Throne.
    Candace is interviewed by Ohio Writing Project (OWP) teacher-leader Megan Rodney (https://twitter.com/megan_rodney). Megan is a former second- and third-grade teacher, and is currently the Elementary PD Lead with OWP.
