Carrie lives in Saint Louis with her husband and two children. She has written and illustrated two children's books: The Smile Box: A Story About Feelings and The Swan and the Rose: A Story About Inner Beauty.
“I grew up loving to escape in the world of stories that my Father would write just for me. So, it wasn’t any wonder that as I got older, I too picked up the pen and started writing.”
The Swan and the Rose is about a swan that finds a rose that's already dead. While others see only the way it looks now, the Swan sees the true beauty despite its appearance.
The Smile Box is about a little girl who feels sad because things are not going her way. Her mother teaches her how to look inside one's self to find happiness and not to rely on the things going on in the outside world
