Cara is a novelist of historical fiction. She has two novels in the works. Battle Hymns is a historical novel set in Washington, D.C. from 1941 to 1943. The Glassmaker’s Wife is a historical novel set in 1925 Chicago and is still very much in progress.
Cara has been an avid reader since she was young. She read all of the American Girl books when she was in elementary school, even though her parents refused to buy her an overpriced doll. In middle school, she was obsessed with the only two Ann Rinaldi books in the school library. They taught her about the 1770 Boston Massacre and the Salem Witch Trials before her history classes ever did. And that was when Cara’s love of historical fiction was born. She didn’t begin writing, though, until her senior year at the University of Georgia, where she studied Finance and had already committed to a career in the corporate world. One day she will be able to quit working for The Man and focus on her writing. Until then, it pays the bills.
When she’s not writing or working, Cara enjoys drinking red wine, watching bad television, doing genealogical research, obsessing over the Duchess of Cambridge’s every outfit, and finding the best guacamole in Texas. Cara currently lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband and their two dogs.
