Originally from London, Cara started writing in 2013.
In 2017 she made the brave decision to republish her previous pieces: Weighting to Live, Changes and Sixteen Months, under her own name and not under the pen name Lily Devine. Her first non-fiction memoir, Curing My Incurable Ezcema, follows her battle with eczema and Red Skin Syndrome. Every Trich in the Book concentrates more thoroughly on her recovery from trichotillomania.
Cara also has a blog, www.tswcara.blogspot.com, dedicated to trichotillomania, dermatillomania and RSS, a condition she suffered from for over two years. She has since made a full recovery and is an advocate for the relatively unknown condition which affects thousands of people worldwide. Through her blog, Cara hopes to normalise living with a mental health condition and lift the stigma still prevalent in our society today.
