Kara was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, in a tiny town, Sequim, Wa. The closest mall was two and a half hours away in Silverdale, Seattle a ferryboat ride away.
She spent her childhood playing in the woods, exploring her imagination, and learning to be a mechanic from her father. Creative writing was always an outlet. She started a career as a motorcycle mechanic, to later find she wanted to try something else. After several career changes, she moved home to marry her first love, and is now a Certified Medical Assistant at a small family practice clinic. She writes whenever she can. She has been published in her work newsletter, The Healthy Heron.
Kara lives in a small cabin in the woods with her husband, Micah, and two kitties, Spot and Stripe.
