Brittany Janee Thurman

is devoted to candy. Sour candy, gummy candy, even candy that doesn't look like candy. But, what she loves more than sweet confectioneries is writing for children. Babies, toddlers, preschools, school age, young adult.  She writes while savoring delicious sugary treats. You might find her with a pen in hand, or a book, or some candy. You'll always find her with a story.
