My name is Candy, I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Las Vegas in my early 30's. I lived in Las Vegas for 26 years and worked in a few casinos as a dealer and eventually in surveillance...you know, the 'eye in the sky'. Then in 2006 I returned to New Jersey (family issue) where I stayed until 2013 when I returned to the southwest. I didn't go back to Las Vegas because the population had grown too much for my liking, but a small town in Arizona was very appealing and it's only an hour to Las Vegas.
I've been writing online since 2009 which is when my sister told me about a website called eHow. A couple of years later that site made a lot of changes so I moved on to Squidoo until they sold out to another website. I chose not to make the transition to the new site, instead I joined Wizzley and I love it here!
