Cara King is a native Californian who has a bad habit of moving every year or two. She has lived in London and Norwich in England, Pittsburgh and Princeton on the East Coast of the United States, and a number of places in Southern California, where she currently lives with her quantum physicist husband and far too many books.
For several years Cara was a film and theater critic for the Goleta Valley Voice in Goleta, California, near Santa Barbara. Signet Books will publish her first novel, MY LADY GAMESTER, in November 2005.
Cara also writes young adult fiction, science fiction short stories, and children's fantasy novels. Her hobbies include Regency dancing, Regency card games, reading books (particularly children's and young adult fiction, science fiction and fantasy, and of course Regency romance), buying way too many books (so she can read them), and acting in community theater productions (particularly Shakespeare, or anything else written before 1910).
Cara's goals in life include reading all of Shakespeare's plays, finding somewhere to put all her books, and never reading "Clarissa." (She is most of the way to the first goal, knows the sun will implode long before she reaches the second goal, and has serious hope of achieving the last goal.)
