Hi there! Here’s the most important stuff about me:
I’m a writer. I write novels. I write blogs. I write recipes. I write long-winded rants that I never post. I write stories about my kids that I’m forbidden to post. Very occasionally, I write really bad poetry. I’ve written several memoirs about rescuing dogs and am still toiling over a memoir about my challenging horse, True, who stole my heart and then dumped me on my butt. I wrote a whole book on how you can be healthier and happier (with directions and everything!). If you want to know more about my published writing, click here.
I’m a mom. I have one starter-adult, one kid in college, and one in high school. So this means that I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I’m sure my brain will return in about five or six years.
I’m also a dog foster mom. So far, we’ve saved 165 dogs from shelters in the south. I write a blog all about these adventures. Click here to check it out. I’ve spent a lot of time in southern shelters and it has moved me to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, so I created a mission called, Who Will Let the Dogs Out. You can learn more about it here.
I don’t have time for much else, but if I did, I’d take up yoga, have a weed-free garden, run a few more trail races, and read a lot more books. To see what I’ve read, am reading, and want to read, check me out on goodreads.
And if you really want to chat, feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
One last thing, I go by Cara, not Cara Sue, I just use my full name as my by-line because it makes my mother happy.
