More on Candice James
"Candice James is a poet with many facets to her poetry. In this book of sonnets she takes us on a journey through the agonies and ecstasies of love and then with the flow of her pen leads us seamlessly to the darker underside of the human psyche.
In Midnight Embers, Candice burns the essence of love's sweet perfume onto our souls to reveal its burnt offerings. Each sonnet is a true masterpiece of form. I found parts of myself deep within her words as she writes from that place in the heart we have all visited on those long lonely nights."
