Helen Perelman enjoys candy from all parts of Sugar Valley, but jelly beans, red licorice, and gummy fish are her favorites. She worked in a children’s bookstore and was a children’s book editor...but sadly she never worked in a candy store. She now writes full time in New York, where she lives with her husband and two daughters. Visit her online at HelenPerelman.com and CandyFairies.com.
