The Harringford Flats Mysteries


Who is K.A. Stoyles?

KA Stoyles Oct 2023_KAS2364.jpg

Good question! Sometimes I ask myself the same thing. One day I might be Lily James (All I Need) desperately trying to prove her fiance isn't guilty of fraud. The next, I'm Lena Harringford, (The Harringford Murder) struggling to maintain her dignity despite scandal and murder. Or I might be BJ Rogers (The Black Pearls) wondering why her grandmother's pearl necklace transports her to the past.

Family and friends know me as Karen Stoyles. I live with my wonderful husband of over 40 years in Southern Ontario, Canada.

I've received awards for sewing, baking, and photography. During COVID, I worked through my fabric stash sewing wallets and purses, and added acrylic painting to the list of hobbies.


Writing is a recent passion, comparatively speaking. When diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer after retiring in late 2015, writing became an escape from appointments and treatments. Holding my first novel, Lies and Lovers, in my hand, was an unbelievable accomplishment and only the beginning. I have self-published eight novels, including my latest release, The Price of a Life in November 2023. 

Readers find my relaxed writing style entertaining with page-turning twists and turns. The stories appeal to readers who appreciate women's fiction, contemporary fiction, a touch of fantasy, or cozy mysteries, and keep them engaged from the first page until the last.

If this is your first visit, browse through my Novels. Each one is available in your favourite format: eBook, paperback or hardcover and may be purchased on my Amazon Author Page.

Thanks for visiting! Come back often for news and updates.
