Haay! I'm Candid Brandon, formerly known as Candid Taylor. I am a Flintstone, which means I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan. 

I'm a graduate of the illustrious Clark Atlanta University with a B.A. in Public Relations. I also have an M.A. in Children's Literature from Eastern Michigan University (that's for y'all who need to see academic credentials to establish my credibility).

I am just Candid. I am a wife/life partner of 8 years and counting with Kellen. I am a mom to Aubrey (4), Chandler (6), and step-mom to Amiya (14). We live in Okemos, Michigan, a suburb of Lansing (I only mention that because we are still trying to navigate this suburban life that is so foreign to our inner-city upbringing).


I work full-time at a "place-holder" job, which has nothing to do with my purpose or desires. My writing and art are helping me navigate all these roles and identities in my journey to live out my assignment on earth with consciousness and love.

Candidbrandon.com is my playground to author everything that is me-Candid. Whether it is my blog, books, or art work; you get my authentic self. So, stay a while and explore the world of Candid Brandon.
