Isolated in a small room in old barracks, Cara secretly began to write and eventually became ready to take her voice public. She completed a bachelor’s degree in Radio-TV-Film while attending Oklahoma State University before spending the following years writing in various creative fields: public relations, print journalism, commercial production, and broadcast news. Eventually, Cara’s personal and professional goals led her to become a fulltime screenwriter. Whether a drama or comedy, Cara writes features with life lessons intended to leave the audience better than she found them.
