Candace Cox Wheeler

A fourth generation Biloxi, Mississippi, native, Candace is a partner in the law firm of Wheeler and Wheeler, PLLC, where she has worked alongside her husband, David, for the past 40 years and raised two sons.

She is a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1978 with a double major in Journalism and Political Science. While at USM, she wrote for the campus newspaper, The Student Printz, where her articles included an interview with the comedian, Steve Martin and the musician, Stephen Stills. She went on to graduate from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 1981 and since that time, she has focused most of her literary skills writing briefs to the courts on behalf of her firm’s clients.

She decided it was time to branch out. Cradle in the Oak, her first novel, was released in April, 2021, its sequel, Squall in the Gulf in August, 2022, and the final book of the trilogy, Sunset in the Sound, in April, 2024.
