Biography of Candace E. Salima

Following, is an email from Linda Scanlan, who is a lifelong friend of mine. She is writing my biography, with my approval. I will be actively involved in the project, although Linda will have the sole task of deciding what will be included and what won’t. It is divided into two books, and has my complete support. Please respond to Linda’s question with complete honesty. Believe me, I am far from a perfect person and have a long way to go.

Please send your responses to Linda Scanlan at

Thank you,

Candace E. Salima
