When she was nine, Carrie read The Call of the Wild, leading to a failed attempt to turn her dachshund and beagle into sled dogs. But author Jack London did succeed in inspiring Carrie to create her own stories and share them.
Carrie has taken many courses on writing for children and is an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). She is currently working on several picture book biographies and a "cozy mystery" chapter book series while living in Tampa with her husband and two fur-kids.
If you'd like to discuss a project or just the impossibility of dog sledding without huskies, a sled, or even snow, contact Carrie via email: carrie (at) carriekarnesfannin (dot)com.
