Meet new author: Cara Preston!

I have had the pleasure these past few months working with several ladies on a collection of books for love the second time around with Red Rose Publishing. Today, I'd like to introduce to you the lovely and talented Cara Preston.

All about Cara Preston.

I enjoy writing and acting. I've been writing for years, doing photojournalism and poetry first, then concentrating on short stories and novels. Under my real name, Phyllis Johnson, I have had three poetry books published. I also conduct writing workshops and host open mic nights. I also write a weekly newspaper column and do restaurant reviews.

How long have you been writing?

I've been writing for twenty years.

What made you decide you wanted to be a writer?

When I was a young girl, I was given a toy typewriter and that instilled a love for writing at an early age.

How did you come up with the idea of Another Place and Time ?

I was staying at a writing retreat with my friend and I was inspired to write the story there. Actually, the story includes mention of the bed and breakfast in it. In some strange ways, the story became precognitive of something that later took place in my life.

What do you see happening in your writing future?

I see series of books in my future, of different genre. I also see myself as a motivational speaker on a book tour.

Blurb:

Is there such thing as a soul mate? Trina's divorce has left her shaken and wondering. Then someone comes along who totally blows her away. Ben is different. It's as though he's from another era, but is he? Paranormal events lead her to believe that he is from another time zone. Will she take a chance on him and find love again?

Excerpt

Leave it to Trina to have memories usually rooted in food. It never failed. Those dreams about a blue car were no doubt triggered at some point by a blueberry muffin before going to bed. And that black patent leather purse she bragged about was undoubtedly inspired by some strand of black licorice, known to be an aphrodisiac. That's it… food and sex. The two had an intertwining with a fine line of division. Talk about a Better than Sex Cake often had Trina scratching her head. Better than sex? She had her doubts.

Thanks Kaye! I have some psychic tendencies and writing this time travel piece played into the paranormal state of mind I find myself in sometimes. Hope you enjoy it!
