Kara Melissa Sharp is a stay-at-home mom and transplant Torontonian after several years living and teaching abroad. She has two young children, Sebastian and Tallula. Sebastian has severe dystonic/mixed cerebral palsy due to a traumatic birth and subsequent brain injury. He loves chocolate and going fast in his Red Racer (wheelchair). Tallula adores her big brother; when she's not stealing his glasses, she's entertaining him with her adventurous spirit. Kara's one true love is a journalist who masquerades as a basketball player at night. When she's not having dance parties in the living room with her kiddos, she's writing stories or sewing quilts for friends' babies while sipping on homemade hot chocolate to keep warm in The Great White North.
