Kara Stanley

Greetings from the Sunshine Coast, Canada.

I am an author of fiction and non-fiction, a movement teacher, a mother, a lazy gardener, a Toronto Raptors fan and an avid sourdough bread baker. Also, as an enthusiastic songwriting collaborator with my musician husband Simon Paradis, I often fill the roles of roadie/merch girl/ Solid Gold Dancer at his gigs. (Fun work, but the pay is crap.) As much as I’d love to be a proficient piano player, I never find the time to practice.

I’m happiest deep in the forest walking our dogs Chico and Cashew or summer-swimming at Smuggler’s Cove. I agree with Isak Dinesen when she wrote The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.

Welcome to my site! Please take a look around, check out the books, the resources, or come visit me in person at a reading, or music event.
