Although her true passion is editing, Carrie spends her free time writing for Busy Nothings and developing connections through Facebook, Twitter, and
Pinterest. She dabbles in photography, is a recent convert to cooking, and
believes that life is about more than acquiring stuff – unless it’s more books.
A lifelong reader, her stack of books-in-progress is always changing, and she
is an unabashed fan of Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and the Bible. As a very young child, Carrie's heart was changed when she accepted Christ as her Savior, and she is passionate about making sure that He is central to everything in her life.
In 2010, Carrie and her husband published Mashed Potatoes: A Little Brother Story under the pseudonym Graham Koens, which is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats. It was during her attempts to promote Little Brother that Carrie first began to understand the power of social media.
After working as a pharmacy technician for fifteen months in a retail setting, Carrie started looking for a job that was more in line with her God-given talents and college degree. In April 2012, she was thrilled to be asked to join the team at Weaving Influence as an Implementation Specialist & Editor.
About the Blog: Busy Nothings was started in November 2009 as a place where Carrie could write about her interests. These include - but aren't limited to: leadership, conservatism, book reviews, financial stewardship, simplifying, pumpkins, food, and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.
Throughout the last three years, Busy Nothings has provided Carrie with an outlet to share her faith, her struggles, and her successes. It has created opportunities to meet people around the globe, and has opened up doors of opportunities. Her heartfelt thanks to those who have been reading from the early days, and a huge welcome to those who are just joining up!
