—Melanie Faith, author of In a Flash! Writing & Publishing Dynamic Flash Prose


“Takahashi captures a mood, reveals a moment, and gently unfolds our human condition onto the page. She transports us to another world . . . yet she reflects each of our unique situations back at us . . . the sweet agonies and bitter joys in which all of humankind is swaddled.”
—Val M. Mathews, editor, The Wild Rose Press and The Exit 271 Studio


The Escape to Candyland is a mesmerizing collection that weaves delicately through the wasteland of life’s pain and struggle, [and] captures the breadth of hope and love contained in the human heart.”
—Zachary Steele, author of Anointed and Flutter, founder and executive director of Broadleaf Writers Association


The Escape to Candyland is dark and addictive literary confectionery . . . compelling the reader to devour the contents in one sitting––then return to savor the unsavory, again and again.”
—Mari Ann Stefanelli, The Writer’s High®
