About Kris Carr

Kris Carr is a best-selling author, filmmaker, and health advocate. She is the subject of the stirring documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer. The film, which she wrote and directed for TLC and the Oprah Winfrey Network, chronicles her adventure of living and thriving with stage-four cancer.

Her companion book series, featuring Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips (with a foreword by singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow) and Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor (foreword by Marianne Williamson), has been translated into nine languages. These stigma smashing life-lines have been deemed “must have” guides to rebuilding the body and spirit while combating disease. Carr recounts her courageous story of survival and shares every step of her journey to wellness in a practical, funny, and endearing style. In addition, Carr provides invaluable tips for choosing the right doctor, learning to nurture the self, rebuilding self- esteem, and fighting cancer “with your fork.”

Carr’s third book, Crazy Sexy Diet (January 2011 with a foreword by Dean Ornish), takes the nutrition and lifestyle advice she’s learned on her journey and translates it into a matchless game plan for wellness warriors seeking health and happiness.

Kris Carr’s newest book Crazy Sexy Kitchen will change the way you live, love and eat. It’s filled to the brim with inspiration, education, cooking tips, and over 150 nourishing yet nosh-worthy recipes.

Kris Carr’s wildly successful and award-winning blog attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each month as the web’s go-to resource “for health, spiritual wealth, and happiness.”
