Authors Bio: Born in 1985 as Candace Osmond in North York Ontario, I began to travel with my parents at the very young age of four years old. I had lived all over Canada and seen everything my country has to offer, from the enchanting shores of Fogo Island, Newfoundland to the gigantic snow-capped mountains of Port Alberni, British Columbia all by the time I was ten. I did, however, spend most of my life in Eastern Canada where I was surrounded by folklore and legends, not knowing how they would shape my personality and imagination for the rest of my life.

Being the only girl of my age in a small group of kids, in an even smaller town, left me spending most of my time by myself and, in result, letting my imagination take over. I would sit by the shore and dream up stories of mermaids and other fantastic creatures to pass the time. Coming from a family with writers and artists dispersed throughout, it was only natural that I spend my time writing, drawing and reading. I dreamed of becoming nothing more than an artist, a creator of any kind. By the age of eleven, I spent most of my waking hours scribbling down short stories, poems and anything else I could think of, while adding my own personal illustrations. By the age of fourteen, I had won numerous minor arts and writing competitions. I excelled at anything art and literature related so, naturally, I planned to attend university for nothing more or less than that. In 2003 I planned to attend university for Creative Writing and Literary Studies. But, with the fear that I would spend all my time and money on an education and end up in a field that I may very well struggle to succeed in, I backed out and attended school for Design instead
. Now, a successful Designer living happily in sunny Medicine Hat, Alberta, I met a man and fell in love. His passion and talent for art far exceeds my own, but he motivated me to awaken my old habits of staying up late or waking up early to scribble down dreams and ideas before I had forgotten them and they disappeared forever.

The Iron World Series Dream Movie Cast:
Avery Quinn: Emma Stone is my Avery. Her personality matches to the character so well it's almost too good to be true.

Aunt Tess: Isla Fisher is the epitome of a child trapped in an adult body.

Julie Ryan, Avery's best friend and orphaned fairy disguised as a human: Singer, Ellie Goulding was my inspiration for this character. I really hope she takes  stab at acting before my book ever hits the big screen *dreams big*

Will, Julie's human boyfriend: Jessie Heisenberg is Will, hands down. Cute, geeky, and loyal.

Jack Danes, Avery's vampire boyfriend:  Tyler Blackburn and a pair of cerulean blue contacts and we have our Jack Danes, ladies and gentlemen.
Celadine Danes, Jack's vampire sister and Avery's boss: Singer, Dilana Robichaux is who I pictured when writing this character. I simply can't see anyone else in this role. Hopefully she can act, too!

Moya the Maiden: Scarlet Johansen would play the perfect pink haired ex-mermaid.

Lattie the sprite: Lattie, the tiny and adorable sprite would most likely be CGI in the movie. This is the closest I could find; just picture her sonic blue with white hair!

Oliver the troll: John Goodman is totally Oliver, the big grumpy teddy bear.

Evaine the evil bat fairy from Hell: Helen Bonham Carter. Come on, who else would play an insane bat fairy from Hell.
King Oden of The Dark Court: Alex Pettyfer, oh Alex Pettyfer. You are totally Oden. Dark, sexy, narcissistic, and obsessive all rolled into one.

Sullivan, Oden's brother: Landon Liboiron is a rising star that I'm quite fond of. After watching him in Hemlock Grove I just have to have him play Sullivan. He's perfect.

Max Carmicahel, the frenemy of Avery and her friends. Also, daughter of the Therian secret society: Amanda Seyfried inspired Max for me. It's all in the eyes, the angry eyes.
