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 and Ask magazines (“Deceptive Data and Charts that Cheat,” November/December 2018; “Life in the Deep,” October 2019), and in forthcoming issues of Muse, SCBWI’s 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.
