ABOUT CARRIE FINISON

  • My writing for children has focused around picture books and magazine work. My poems and stories have appeared in BabybugLadybugHigh Five, and Highlights magazines, and I was thrilled to win the 2014 Barbara Karlin grant for picture book writing from SCBWI, and the 2015 Peg Davol scholarship for a picture book manuscript from New England SCBWI. My debut picture book, DOZENS OF DOUGHNUTS, will be published by Putnam in 2020. A second picture book, DON’T HUG DOUG, will follow in 2021. I live outside of Boston with my husband, son, and daughter, and I am represented by Linda Epstein at Emerald City Literary.
