Books By Toby Carr, Katie Carr - Author
Toby Carr was an architect and senior lecturer at Falmouth University, who in 2018 set off to sea kayak all 31 areas of the Shipping Forecast in order to connect with nature, find connection across the seas and deal with the death of his brother, Marcus. He kept detailed recordings, notes and photos, and shared his trip on social media.
Tragically Toby passed away from liver cancer in January 2022 having successfully pitched the book about his story, Moderate Becoming Good Later.
Katie Carr is a British author, artist, educator and coach who never imagined her first book having anything to do with sea kayaking. But when her adventurer brother Toby died in 2022 having sketched out a book, she decided to write it for him. On her year-long journey through loss, frustration, creation and storytelling, Katie was able to put into practice her training in expressive arts therapy and talked the talk on storytelling, as she had so often encouraged her graduate students to do.
After many years travelling the world in business storytelling roles, Katie had always expected to write a book, just not this one. She can currently be found at home in Barcelona, wrangling two young boys or learning to kayak to finish Toby's adventure.
