Introducing Author Candice Pedraza Yamnitz

Posted June 12, 2023 by Debbie in Author Spotlight, Authors / 1 Comment

I had the pleasure of meeting young adult and children author Candice Pedraza Yamnitz this past weekend while she was promoting her new book Dessi and Ky Go Poof at Barnes and Noble.  



On a blustery and wet May day in Chicago, Dessi and Ky get transported to a tropical island where wicked pirates have turned the islanders into birds.

Now it’s up to them to work together, defeat the pirates, locate a treasure, and find their way home again—with a little help from a magical crayon.


Candice also talked about another book that she published, Unbetrothed so I thought I would share that as well.



So, when seventeen-year-old Princess Beatriz still fails to secure a betrothal, her parents hold a ball. Forming an alliance could mean the difference between peace and war, but Beatriz doesn’t want just any suitor. She’s in love with her best friend, Prince Lux. Marrying Prince Lux will always be a silly dream as long as she has no magical gift.

Princess Beatriz will do whatever it takes to obtain a touch of magic, including making a deadly oath to go on a quest to Valle de Los Fantasmas. A valley where no one comes out alive.

If she can manage to succeed, Princess Beatriz could have everything she desires and secure peace for her kingdom. If she fails, she’ll lose not only her greatest dream but also her kingdom, and maybe even her own life.
