Demika Caldwell lives in Chicago, Illinois, with her husband and two daughters (Kennedy and Kaitlyn Emma Candi). Before moving to the big city, she was a true suburban girl raised in Bolingbrook, Illinois, where she discovered her love for writing. After graduating from Columbia College with a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing Communications, she had a successful career at one of the largest consumer packaged goods companies in the world.
Now, her days are filled with hauling her daughters off to auditions (momanger), volunteering at the school, assisting with homework, cooking, refereeing sibling fights and writing stories that she hopes children and families will enjoy.
Demika is currently working on publishing her next book in the Kennedy series – It’s A Slumber Party: Starring Kennedy.
