Cara Bristol Bio

I’ve been a writer all my life. Early in my career, I worked a newspaper reporter, then corporate PR specialist. But my love is writing fiction. After years of writing mainstream and women’s fiction with modest success, I decided to try writing an erotic romance. I had an idea roving around in my mind.  The result was Intimate Submission, an erotic romance novella. Intimate Submission and Secret Desires, my second erotic romance novella, have both been published by Black Velvet Seductions in an anthology called Spanked!

I’m currently working on a series of spanking/domestic discipline novellas. The first, Spanking Melania, has been accepted by for publication by Black Velvet Seductions. I’m working on the second book in the series, Disciplining Emma.

    Well Cara — Best of luck in ALL that you set your mind to. You seem like you like to branch out, take risks and such. Good for you.

    In your bio you say that you’ve been a writer all of your life. Did you keep a journal as a child/teen? How did YOU come to first put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and make the switch from Reporter to PR? In PR you must have used your imagination to capture your audience — to sway others to the products/services, etc. that you represented. Was the leap to writing to capture THIS audience a hard one and how did you first start?

    Keep writing Cara – your works are artistry.

      Thank you for the comment Doni!I did keep a journal as a kid, off and on. I always liked to write. When the other kids would complain about having to write a term paper, I’d complain, too, but secretly relish the assignment! I went into journalism because I wnted to write and I could see a direct career path tied to a college degree. After a while, I just wanted to do something different, and PR was an easy segue. I worked for several different industries (non-profit, aerospace & insurance) and wrote a huge variety of different types of materials. Writing erotic romance is FUN. Way more fun than journalism or PR! Writing is always work, but there’s a big element to it that seems like play. I get to sit at my computer and make stuff up! It doesn’t get better than that. Interesting though…in my current erotic romance in progress, the heroine works in insurance but wants to become a newspaper columnist. So the past is always useful fodder…
