is an early childhood teacher in rural South Australia. Her passion for children’s literacy began twelve years ago, when she first experienced reading aloud to her students. Now with children of her own, Carrie has an excuse to follow them barefoot in the garden and be inspired by the mischief they get up to. She loves nothing more than a great story and a great coffee, but not necessarily in that order.
Carrie's picture book Market Day
(illustrated by Hannah Sommerville) was shortlisted for the 2023 CBCA Awards, while her debut picture book, Stitches and Stuffing
(illustrated by Sara Acton), was a notable book in the 2018 CBCA Awards.
