Humor columnist for Redbook, eHow, Nickelodeon's NickMom, Disney's BabyZone.com and HelloGiggles. Work also has frequently appeared in the comments sections of various esteemed online tabloids with gems such as, "FIRRRSSST LOOSERS!11!!"
A former television writer and humor columnist for outlets such as Redbook, Nickelodeon, HelloGiggles and Disney, Candy previously was a professional job hopper in Corporate America, having worked at a top public relations agency in New York City, as well as in brand management for the Fortune 50 Company, Boeing, in Seal Beach, Calif. She then took the next logical step in her marketing career to become a staff writer for the CBS daytime drama, “The Bold and the Beautiful,” where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines.
Candy has a Master of Science degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, just outside of Chicago. Born and raised in another major city, Mechanicsburg, Pa., Candy now resides in Los Angeles with Mr. Candy, their two young kids, and their ridiculously fluffy cats, Lucy, Lola and Larry.
Yes, Candy is her real name. No, she has never been a stripper, prostitute or Scottish Terrier. Can’t believe everything you see in the movies, people. Except that all telephone numbers begin with the digits 555. That’s true.
Candy loves to hear from friends and readers. Feel free to e-mail her at CandyKirbyisNotaStripper@gmail.com or call the hotline at 555-4321.
