Carrie Jones is a New York Times and internationally-bestselling author, podcaster, writing coach, editor, artist, and occasional human.

She graduated from Vermont College's MFA program for writing and was awarded the honor of distinguished alum in 2009.. She has edited newspapers and poetry journals and has recently won multiple awards from the Maine Press Association and also been awarded the Martin Dibner Fellowship as well as a Maine Literary Award.

Her first published book, TIPS ON HAVING A GAY (EX) BOYFRIEND appeared May 2007. Her second novel, LOVE (AND OTHER USES FOR DUCT TAPE) came out March 2008. Another book, GIRL, HERO was released after August 2008. TIPS won the Maine Literary Award and the Independent Booksellers Award.

The New York Times and internationally best selling, NEED, an urban fantasy/romance appeared December 2008 and has been named a VOYA Best Books of 2008 and was a finalist for a bunch of other awards. It's about human sized pixies, the apocalypse, and being awesome. The follow-up books in the series include CAPTIVATE, ENTICE and ENDURE. She cowrote AFTER OBSESSION, which is creepy with Steven Wedel and several nonfiction picture books.

She co-edited DEAR BULLY, where all this young adult authors volunteered to tell their own true stories about bullying and was a contributor to DEAR TEEN ME, which is an awesome anthology and also THINGS I HAVEN'T SAID.

In 2015, she released the first book of her middle grade series, TIME STOPPERS, which she began writing while sleeping in a car, scribbling on pieces of paper, notepads, and her laptop. She wrote it for her daughter, Emily. It is the first of a trilogy. It's been compared to Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books.

Also in 2015, she released FLYING, the first in a science fiction series about a cheerleader who learns her mom is an alien bounty hunter. It's a bit like Men in Black crossed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer crossed with Doctor Who.

Another horror book with Steven Wedel IN THE WOODS was a Publisher's Weekly Buzz Book in 2019.

But Carrie's very first book was in fourth grade. It was a Star Trek fan fiction where a girl named Cassie (sort of close to Carrie) saved the universe by dying heroically. Kirk, Spock, Sulu, Checkov, Bones, and pretty much every character was madly in love with her and mourned her death. Luckily, that 434 paged missive in multiple notebooks is hidden away now.

That's boring though, isn't it? Here, let's try the biography this way.

Carrie Jones likes Skinny Cow fudgsicles and potatoes. She does not know how to spell fudgsicles. This has not prevented her from writing books. She lives with her cute family in Maine, but she grew up in Bedford, NH where she once had a seance with cool uber-comedian Sarah Silverman.

The Meyers (Seth and Josh) brothers are from Bedford, too, so you'd think it would make Carrie funnier, coming from Bedford N.H. Obviously, something didn't work.

Carrie has one large, skinny white dog and a chubby lab mix and three cats. All like fudgicles. Only the lab likes potatoes. This may be a reason for his weight problem (Shh??? don't tell). Carrie has always liked cowboy boots but has never owned any until recently. This is a very wrong thing.

Still boring? Still with me? How about this...?

1. Carrie is a volunteer firefighter and does things for anti-human trafficking agencies.

2. Carrie can not drink coffee. It makes her frightening. Do not give her caffeine.

3. Carrie is very responsive to loving strokes on the hair, kind of like a puppy. However, do not do this without asking first.

4. Carrie is secretly really, really shy even though she's pathetically outgoing in person. She has a very hard time calling people. So, if you want to talk to her, make the first move.

5. Carrie sometimes wears mismatched socks, if you do not think this is cool, do not tell her. You will hurt her feelings.

6. Carrie really, really wants you to like her books. Please like her books. PLEEEAASSSEEEE. She'll be your best friend forever. That is, if you want a friend who is shy about calling and emailing and who wears mismatched socks and can't drink caffeine and likes being pet on the head. Hhmmm???.

7. Carrie is not above begging.

8. Carrie, like Belle in TIPS drinks Postum. It's for the same reason, too.

9. Carrie loves Great Pyrenees dogs. They are huge and white, and furry and it looks like they have white eyeliner and mascara on, which is way too cute. Do you have one? Send a picture!

10. Carrie lives in Maine. She has a hard time with this in the winter. It is bleak in Maine in the winter. Imagine everything shades of gray and brown and no green anywhere except for in people's noses. This is Maine in Winter. Maine in summer is the best place in the world, so it's a trade-off. Feel free to invite Carrie to your house in the winter, but not if it's in Greenland, Canada, or anywhere north of Florida.

11. Forget that. She'd still probably come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tugs on the Heartstrings
By CvCait on October 27, 2020
Here's the thing, if you don't step back and gather perspective, life can chew you up and spit you out. It can make you forget your path, testing your #faith

Carrie Jones has done it again with this amazing read that had me in tears. While this isn't a "pump you up" read, its definitely a "put things into perspective" type of read. This beautifully written novella goes deep into your soul, making you smile and cry. I definitely recommend this quick read.
