I am Candice

Head Shot

Hello and nice to meet you!

I am Candice Coates, the heart and soul behind ‘I came for the soup…’, this unique and glorious platform designed to harness creative light through faith, art, and fiction.

My desire is to encourage others to rediscover and take hold of their dreams and unique creative voice.

I am a traveler at heart and look forward to stretching my wings and filling my passport in the months and years to come, all with the desire to grow more of my muse so that I can help you develop yours.

I am an aspiring fiction writer, jumping from genres ranging from Speculative Science Fiction and Fantasy to Comedic Clean Read Romance and Drama, all with touches of my Christian faith. I also have several Non-Fiction titles in the works to encourage readers in their faith as well as their creativity.

I am a lover of Ireland, tea, and just about anything with pistachios. When not writing, or developing content here on ICFTS, I am creating visual art with pen or paint, or new designs for my handmade polymer clay jewelry line, Shizen Brook.

To read more of about my fiction work you can find me here at my author site, www.candicecoates.wordpress.com.  You can also find out more about me and how to stay connected by going to www.about.me/candicecoates

In Him always,

Candice Coates
