Carrie Finison began her literary career at the age of seven with an idea, a box of markers, and her father’s typewriter. She has been writing off and on ever since, though she has (somewhat regretfully) traded in the typewriter for a laptop. Her poems and stories for children have appeared in Babybug, Ladybug, High Five, and Highlights magazines, and her debut picture book, DOZENS OF DOUGHNUTS, illustrated by Brianne Farley, will be published by Putnam in 2020. Her second picture book, DON’T HUG DOUG, will follow in 2021. She lives outside Boston with her husband, son, daughter, and two cats who permit her to write in their cozy attic office.
