September 17

Candice Dyer is an American writer, born September 17, in Georiga, a writer who illustrates that talent for capturing the real when it gets surly. Here is a throwaway description from her facebook chatter,
Regarding a Mother's Day greeting she wrote:

I'm the doting companion to a bunch of cats, but I fed all my babies to the hogs. But Happy Mother's Day to you, too! :-)

Her 2008 book about musical genius in middle Georgia,  Street Singers, Soul Shakers, and Rebels with a Cause: Music from Macon,will hopefully be reissued soon.

Fr0m her web page we note she has published articles in:

Atlanta magazine,.... Men’s Journal, Paste, Garden & Gun, Georgia Music Magazine, Georgia Trend, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and other publications. Her essay about the 50th anniversary of Waffle House was anthologized in Cornbread Nation 4: The Best of Southern Food Writing.

Candice Michelle Dyer proves roots are not regional.
