Hi! My name is Jennifer Carson and I live in Michigan with my husband, four sons and many four legged friends. I grew up on a steady diet of Muppet movies and renaissance faires, and would occasionally be caught reading under the blankets with a flashlight. Besides telling tales, I like to create fantasy creatures and characters and publish my own sewing patterns. My artwork and patterns can be seen online at thedragoncharmer.com.
I have two children’s books out for middle grade readers (age 8 and Up), Hapenny Magick and it’s sequel Tangled Magick. I’m also currently taking pre-orders for a picture book, Ducky’s New Ball, due out late fall 2017. I also have a design book called Beyond Bears: How to Draw, Design and Sew your own stuffed creatures.
My work has been featured in national magazines like: Cloth, Paper, Scissors, Quilting Arts Magazine, Faerie Magazine, Soft Dolls and Animals, Teddy Bear and Friends, and Dolls United. In the spring of 2008, I was featured on the ABC affiliate, WMUR TV show, New Hampshire Chronicle, and in the fall of 2009 was featured on the Yankee Cable channel’s Kearsarge Valley Magazine show. My sewing patterns have been translated into Dutch and in April 2009, I received the NE-SCBWI Ruth Landers Glass Scholarship for my writing.
