How this book came to be written:
When Candy had to leave her music behind, she found herself adrift, not knowing how or what to do. Her focus, her life had always been about music. Still in shock over the accident that took her voice (leaving her with a condition called stylohyoid complex syndrome) but needing to put food on the table, she ended up in the world of catering as a server. After awhile, her mental fog and depression lifted. She started to look at - and take note of the people around her in this underbelly of the restaurant world. Fascinated by their lives and stories, all she could think was: "If this were a book or movie - no one would believe it". The idea haunted her until she sat down and wrote PURGATORY.
