Cara Sexton describes herself as "part monk, part punk." She lives with her husband and four children in beautiful southern Oregon where she cultivates a passion for creativity and inspiration, as she daily gathers the manna of ordinary magic from even the unlikeliest of places. Cara writes creative nonfiction, poetry, and fiction, and her work has appeared in the books Finding Church and What a Woman is Worth, as well as in many magazines and online publications. She has worked as nonfiction editor for Duende literary magazine and is currently writing a spiritual memoir while also completing her BFA degree in creative writing at Goddard College. When she isn't writing, she is probably decorating, daydreaming, kissing freckles, scouring flea markets for vintage trinkets, or preparing for her next big adventure.
