Cara Devereux grew up in a house full of books and it has never occurred to her not to write. Her education came from reading novels tucked inside her textbooks and scribbling notes in the back of her jotter when she should have been paying more attention to French infinitives and quadratic equations.

Though she has her own non-fiction blog about theology (and anything else she thinks of), and has written a number of guest posts for others on the Christian life, her first love in writing has always been fiction. As for poetry, she loves to read classics and has a great appreciation for hymns but after writing one good poem once, beat a hasty retreat back into the safety of prose. You can find her pretending she knows about hymns and how to podcast at Hymnpartial.com

Outside of writing, Cara loves God, her local church, and her somewhat peculiar family (including two guinea pigs who are obsessed with pea flakes). She enjoys playing music, cooking, running, and being outside (preferably near the sea or in a forest).
