"As a romance writer, I hate to admit this," says author Cara Colter, "but my first passion was not men, but horses."

The love affair began the first day of school, when Tom and his paint pony galloped right off the Grade One reader page and into Cara's heart. From that day on, Cara rode her imaginary pony through the streets of her hometown: Calgary, Alberta.

"It wasn't called creative visualization back then, but, still, it worked. I bought my first horse when I was just our of high school at age 17. Surprise — a paint pony I called Kiowa."

Cara’s second passion, once again, was not men but books. She spent the days of her youth curled up in a big green armchair reading. When she couldn’t find a good book, she began to make up the kind of stories she wanted to read. She credits this, and not her journalism diploma, for the publication of her first romance novel in, 1985.

Finally, the man part! In 1990, Cara met Rob, her partner, the love of her life and her soul mate, after having given up totally on romance (except in books!).

"My life began to work at precisely when I realized I’d made quite a mess of it. Humbled, I went to my Creator and asked for help. I found out everything I needed to experience joy and fulfillment — to feel complete — was right inside of me, in my soul. The irony was, when I discovered that, everything I had ever wanted finally came to me."

Rob, a building contractor, brought his two sons, Richard and Jeffrey, to the relationship. Cara has a daughter, Cassidy. All three are now teens.

"My family is one of my greatest sources of delight and inspiration — yes, they’re even better than horses or books!"

Cara, Rob and their children live, love, and laugh together in a beautiful Cape Cod-style home that they designed and built themselves. They share ten acres in the gorgeous Kootenay region of British Columbia, with eight horses of every imaginable size, shape and color. (Cara's favorite is a scruffy and somewhat cranky little Arab-Appaloosa cross named Two-bit.) They also have two purr-fect kitties, Hunter and Soda.

"Each day I acknowledge, with gratitude, the abundance of gifts I have been given," says Cara. "One of the most precious to me is the opportunity I have been given to serve God and my fellow man by writing such wonderful stories of love and hope."
