We caught up with one of our favorite authors in Memphis, Candace Echols to learn more about what inspired her latest book Josephine and the Quarantine!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a native Memphian! I have lived all over Memphis including in Frayser, Bartlett, midtown, downtown...all over. While I enjoy my hometown, I love to travel too! I have traveled to almost 40 countries and lived abroad for a couple of years earlier on. At one time, I was a teacher and I have a Masters in Education. The most adventuresome thing I have ever
done is either paragliding off the top of an Alp in Switzerland or zip lining with my mother across Niagara Falls. My real life, though, is lived inside a minivan where I drive hours and hours of carpool each week. My husband, Jim, and I have five children and a dog (Rookie) and we love the phase we are in right now. It's a fun one!
