Carrie Pearson feels that being a children’s book author represents the best merger of her education, occupations, and passion. She holds a BA in early childhood education, taught at University of Michigan’s preschool and then moved into the business world for 15+ years. She is now a full-time writer for children and owner of a consulting business in the children’s book industry focusing on preparing writers to connect with the right agent and/or editors. She is an SCBWI Regional Advisor for Michigan and is represented by Kelly Sonnack at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Her first two books were published by Arbordale and are nature nonfiction picture books. Her third launches October 2018 with Charlesbridge and is also a nature nonfiction picture book about the world’s tallest tree. Her next projects are a picture book biography and a nonfiction picture book survey of real-life princesses. Carrie would love to connect with you on Twitter @carrieapearson, Pinterest carrieapearson, and at her website www.carriepearsonbooks.com
