Cara J. Stevens
Cara J. Stevens' driving force is reclaiming the magic of childhood, whether she's writing for kids, teaching creativity workshops, or seeking out small moments of wonder in the everyday world. She began her career designing interactive games and stories based on books, and is happy to have come full circle, creating stories based on video games and beloved childhood characters. She has written more than 60 packaged books for kids based on licensed characters, including many Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. titles, and works part time as a freelance editor as well. Her web magazine, Bookishly Yours, features interviews with published children's authors and illustrators and can currently be found on Medium. She also teaches creative writing workshops with her daughter over the summer, and is developing online creativity workshops for children and adults to enjoy year round. Cara lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband, two children, and a loud, fluffy dog named Oliver.
