Jen: Today we welcome Cara Downey to Romancing the Book. Cara, will you share a short bio with us?
Cara: You’d think this would be the easy part talking about myself, but I have to admit I do find it difficult talking about myself, not sure why… but here goes. I am 37 yrs old my birthday was February 2… I can say with certainty now that I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and during my years in university this was especially felt during my undergraduate degree, but my confidence wasn’t at the level it is at today. What I mean by that is, I put stumbling blocks in my mine way… and I was thinking I couldn’t do it, and thinking people wouldn’t like the stories I created. I put that dream on the back burner (I want to give advice to everyone out there, never put your dreams on the back burner)… Fast forward to today, I’ve self-published two collections of erotic poetry/short stories and the ideas for my collection of erotic poetry (my first publication) stems from my own desires and fantasies and also my deep love, admiration and respect for the bdsm/kink community. My family has and continues to be very supportive of my shift in career and are just as determined to see me succeed as I am when it comes to seeing myself succeed.
