Hello! I am Candid Taylor Brandon and I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan and I currently live in Flint, MI with my two amazing daughters Aubrey (6), Chandler (8).

I'm a graduate of the illustrious Clark Atlanta University (B.A Mass Media Arts). I have a M.A. in Children's Literature from Eastern Michigan University and a M.A. in Adult Education and Training from the University of Phoenix. My educational accomplishments have afforded me the opportunity to teach adults about the wonderful world of children's literature and visual literacy. When I'm not teaching adults, I am writing for children. My first book Oh Brother, Little Brother won the 2020 Sliver Moon Beam Award for best picture book, and Unapologetic Hair was released in 2022. is my playground to author everything that is Candid. Whether it is my blog, books, or artwork; you get my authentic self. So, stay a while and explore the world of Candid Taylor Brandon.
