Carrie is the author of the forthcoming Horse Girl novel for Penguin Random House as well as The Flying Flamingo Sisters, landing soon on Audible. As a journalist and essayist, she has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, Cosmopolitan,
The New York Post, McSweeney's, Architectural Digest, Condé Nast Traveler and NPR's UnFictional.
An alum of Northwestern University and The Groundlings comedy theatre, Carrie has appeared Inside Amy Schumer. Dang it, *on* Inside Amy Schumer. She served as a staff writer for two Nickelodeon comedy variety shows and performed her own sketch show, Midwestern Wisdom, at the Comedy Central Stage in Los Angeles. Her original animated web series Bad Moms in Movie History appeared on uLive, while her essays on awkwardness are featured in the book Mortified: Life is a Battlefield.
Carrie grew up on the windswept plains of Nebraska and has been lucky enough to circle the globe since then — from the tropical jungles of Papua New Guinea to the windswept deserts of Arabia. Some of her first jobs were with National Geographic Television and the Sundance Film Institute's international writing program, which took her to Spain, Cuba and South America. She now lives between New York and Los Angeles (but always keeps a passport handy).
