About the Author
Candace Amarante is an artist-researcher specializing in writing children's stories and plays. In most of her stories, she pursues two main goals: bringing awareness of children's rights through the arts, and incorporating, in children's literature, the voice of children with chronic illnesses. Her most recent work includes a poem for children, The Sky Smiles at Me (featured in the LEARN Quebec's My Goodnight Bag 2021); a play on children's rights, The Ugly Ones (with Chelsea Woolley; Geordie Theatre Fest 2020); and a play for young audiences, You, Me and Victor Hugo! on the concept of censorship. She has published a short children's story, The Blunder Family: Now Where'd I Put the Pork? (East of the Web 2020); and a children's book, The Pheasant's Tale or . . . Was it Its Tail? (Green Bamboo Publishing 2017). Amarante holds a Ph.D. in political science from Columbia University, NY.
