About the author

Candi Williams is a published author, word nerd and plant mum who lives in beautiful Bristol. She’s written books on everything from iconic women to the surprising joys of being single and perfectly imperfect – mostly in her pyjamas. When she’s not tapping away, you’ll probably find her cooking up something delicious, eating up something delicious, unwinding in a pilates/yoga/mindfulness class or finding an excuse to drink wine with lovely friends. As an outstandingly clumsy human, she generally tries to avoid enjoying yoga and wine simultaneously – for obvious reasons.
