Her published books include Tea for Thirteen (1990), and Imperfect Moments (1993). In 1995 Candis began teaching writing in many different formats. On occasion, she would partner with a Yoga Instructor, creatively combining Yoga practices with practical literary instruction. She moved to Victoria, British Columbia, in 2001 where she died on November 22, 2005.
