Join Sonia Nadina Haynes in conversation with best selling author Kerry Karram.

Kerry is the fourth generation of her family to live at the foot of Grouse Mountain, in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Growing up, walking the trails and seeing the wild life, instilled in her a love for nature. She lives in the family home with her husband Michael and children.

Writing a book was something that, as a child, Kerry had told her grandmother she would do one day, and in 2008, she discovered her grandfather Andy Cruickshank’s diary tucked inside a worn, yellowed envelope. Fascinated, she put her graduate studies on hold and, using the diary as one of her sources, began to write Four Degrees Celsius: A story of Arcitc Peril, (Dundurn Press, 2012, Toronto). Her second book, Death Wins in the Arctic, The Lost Winter Patrol of 1910 (Dundurn Press, Toronto) was published a year later, and also became an Amazon 100 Bestseller, in a variety of categories.  Her deep interest in Canadian history and her love for the Far North is reflected in her writing.

She is currently working on her third book.
