Why We Do It

We’re grateful to share our craft with you.

Our Story

Lacey loves handicraft. Ryan loves the writing community.

It was only a matter of time before the two aligned.


In late 2019, Lacey took to candle making. Ryan, impressed as always with her work, knew the first candle she made, once perfected, would enchant many of the countless writers in his circles.

And so, with origins in a common cause and a desire to share this bit of ourselves with the world, Kill Your Darlings Candle Company was born.

Because gifts are meant to be shared.

Your Story

As a reader and a writer, you’re already familiar with the power of sharing.

That power motivates us to do the same with our candlecraft.


Our shared story is just beginning.
