Carrie Tillotson, a biostatistician by day, turns her zest for science and nature into children’s books by night. You can find her work in Muse magazine (“Deceptive Data and Charts that Cheat,” November/December 2018), and in forthcoming issues of SCBWI’s The Bulletin, and Highlights High Five. She is an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Picture Book Challenge. Living near a wetland, she encounters as many birds, squirrels, raccoons, deer, and skunks as you can imagine in the middle of a city. Find her on twitter at @carrietillotson.
