STARFest facts

Karma Brown has always loved the written word. As a kid, she could usually be found with her face buried in a book, or writing stories about ice-skating elephants. Now that she’s (mostly) grown up, she is the bestselling author of four novels. Her debut novel, Come Away with Me, was a Globe & Mail Best 100 Books of 2015.

Brown is also a National Magazine Award winning journalist who work has appeared in Self, Redbook, Canadian Living, Today’s Parent, and Chatelaine.

Karma Brown lives just outside Toronto with her husband, daughter, and a labradoodle named Fred. When not crafting copy or mulling plot lines, she is typically working out, making a mess in the kitchen and checking items off her bucket list with her family.

Jennifer Cockrall-King is a Canadian writer and author based in Naramata, in the BC Okanagan Valley. She writes about food, drinks, cooking, and nature, and is a contributing editor and columnist for the award-winning Canadian narrative journalism magazine Eighteen Bridges.
