Biography: 

Cara is the author of the upcoming book, From Heartbreak to Healing: Resolving Parental Alienation. After 43 years as an alienated parent with a professional background in child development and family relationships where she managed child development programs serving working parents and their children, plus a doctorate in children’s [innate] spirituality, she finds answers to her questions: “Why me? How did this happen? and What is the purpose?” Through a process of deep introspection, she overcame decades of depression, despite remaining unreconciled with her son. She has now discovered resources, formerly unavailable, that could have led to a different outcome.

Cara has lived in Colorado Springs with her husband, Harry, for the past 41 years. She developed her writing through participation in the American Association of University Women (AAUW) writing group, Women Who Write.
