Born and raised in Southern Ontario, Cara Addison has used drive, tenacity,
thinking to ascend the Canadian corporate ladder to shatter the proverbial
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
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

In typical fashion, Cara found herself submitting ‘Passion, Power, and

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 catalog 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.
