Writing has always been a passion for Cara. With B.A. in English, Cara chose to work as an editor in New York City. Quickly she advanced to Deputy Managing Editor and although she left that job to start a family, she has never stopped writing.

She dabbles in many genres, but most recently she has been published on The Mighty, Still Standing Magazine, The Grit and Grace Project, Inspire The Mind and Self Sufficient Kids, among others. She mainly writes non-fiction these days, chronicling her post traumatic growth journey after losing her oldest son.

Cara is working on her first book at the moment.
