Carrie Tillotson is the children’s author of the books Counting to Bananas and the forthcoming B Is for Bananas. Before she started writing children’s books, Carrie worked as a biostatistician. Her job involved counting a lot of numbers (but not many bananas). Her debut picture book, Counting to Bananas, was selected as an Amazon Editors’ Pick and Best Books of 2022 So Far. She lives in Oregon with her husband and son, two dogs, and two chickens.
