Cara Addison


Born and raised in Southern Ontario, Cara Addison has used drive, tenacity, ambition, and out-of-the-box thinking to ascend the Canadian corporate ladder to shatter the preverbal glass ceiling. As the CEO of a government firm, Cara prefers to be out in the trenches, working to provide solutions rather than sitting behind a desk. Over her fifteen-year career, Cara has given back to her community, supporting her philanthropic interests as she provides strategic governance on numerous boards of directors.

While Cara loves to succeed in her work, it was an impromptu challenge to herself that led her to sit down one day and write a piece of fiction that was worthy of publication. Being an avid daydreamer since childhood, she transferred her own wit and humor to the narrative and dialogue of the characters that resided in her imagination. Words poured onto the page and within weeks, she had a full-length novel with characters, events, and situations that were influenced by the people and places in her everyday life.

In typical fashion, Cara found herself submitting ‘Passion, Power, and Privilege‘ to a publisher just thirty days after Kate Callahan and Bradley Taylor materialized in her imagination. Having boldly submitted her first manuscript she began writing another while balancing the demands of work and a young family. Remarkably, Cara has managed to juggle her career, motherhood, and the creative process of writing. In the past twelve months, this literary newcomer has written and published a total five full-length novels. According to this prolific author, a sixth is in the works.

As the mother of two young daughters, Cara involves her girls as she indulges in outdoor adventures, shares her love of new travel destinations, tends to the backyard vegetable patch, and uses those fresh ingredients in her everyday cooking.

With a growing catalogue of novels, Cara uses her social media savvy to engage and interact with readers. Her playful, clever, and sometimes naughty banter resonates with male and female readers alike.

Cara’s novels include:
Passion, Power, and Privilege
Going The Distance
The Fortuitous Pen [Sequel to Going The Distance]
Every Second Weekend
Loans Lust and Lies

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
If there's such a thing, I'm a method author. Just like in method acting, I create in myself the thoughts and feelings of my characters. I immerse myself in their lives, developing each personality, showcasing their unique qualities through actions, dialogue, and sexual behavior.
I begin with a concept, and the story unfolds as I write. In most cases, I can write a full length novel in 13 to 21 days.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first fictional novel I remember reading was 'The Black Stallion.' I remember how vivid of a picture was painted by the author as I was swept into the story. I try to write vivid imagery for my readers, just like Walter Farley did for me.
