She holds a bachelor’s degree in English Lit with a minor in journalism from Georgia State University. A seminary drop-out, her favorite theologians are Flannery O’Connor, David Sedaris and Alan Watts, who nailed it when he said, “Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.”
Carrie worked as a technical writer in Communications at the Georgia Tech Research Institute for several years before moving on to pursue her passion for books.
