Hi! My name is Jennifer Carson and I live in New Hampshire 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, and being an editor for Spencer Hill Press, 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, a middle grade novella , To Find A Wonder, and my newest book, Hapenny Magick. I also have two short stories published. You can find links to those here.
My work has been featured in national magazines like: 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.
My biggest dream? Working with the Jim Henson Company. Jim Henson and the Froud’s have been a huge influence on both my writing and my art.
