21 Books Before 21
Bestselling author, journalist, content creator, verified social media influencer, and anti-bullying activist, CARRIE BERK already has a life’s worth of accomplishments under her belt. Patch.com recently called her “a whirlwind of a young woman” and Bella Magazine declared her “an ambitious and dedicated boss babe.”
Carrie is a bestselling children’s book author with 21 books to her credit…all by the age of 16. She penned her first book Peace, Love and Cupcakes, when she was only in second grade. At the time she was writing an extensive food review/recipe blog entitled “Carrie’s Cupcake Critique” which garnered her the title “The Cupcake Queen” from The Cake Boss himself, Buddy Valastro. The Cupcake Club series went on to publish 12 books (selling 400,000+ copies worldwide), and became an award-winning Off-Broadway show and featured selection in 2017’s New York Musical Festival. Carrie not only co-wrote the script for the play, but starred in it as well, earning her critical praise and a NYMF award for Outstanding Individual Performance. Carrie’s second series, Fashion Academy, stems from her passion for fashion. The six-book series also became an Off-Broadway production at Vital Theatre and is currently licensed worldwide by Tams-Witmark/Concord Music Publishing. Her latest series, Ask Emma (Bonnier Publishing), springs not just from her boundless imagination, but from her personal experience as a teen lifestyle blogger and someone who has experienced cyberbullying firsthand. Ask Emma launched in 2018 at Book Expo America and Book Con with book three of the series hitting shelves in October 2019.
Carrie launched "Carrie's Chronicles" in December 2017. The "Style Empowerment" site, paired with her exciting posts on her verified Instagram account (@carrieberkk), is about channeling your style as your superpower. Besides covering the latest fashion, beauty, food, health, entertainment and places/spaces, the site features “Carrie’s Q & A," a series of inspirational interviews with today's celebrities, creators, and movers/shakers. Carrie has written over 300 articles on the site, and continues to create daily content. Carrie has collaborated with top fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands including VS PINK, REVOLVE, Alice + Olivia, Madewell, FOREO, Dormify, Natalie’s Juices, Alex Woo, and Daniel Wellington.
Carrie has been profiled in The Washington Post, The New York Daily News and most recently Teen Boss! Magazine for being a real kid "networking her way to success." She has served as an Instagram Live correspondent for TigerBeat and Girls’ Life, covering red carpet arrivals and celeb interviews at the Radio Disney Music Awards (Ardy’s), New York Fashion Week, and the Teen Choice Awards. She has contributed to Seventeen Magazine’s print and digital channels and her recent video for Seventeen, “Bestie Picks Bae” has over 1.2 million views.
Carrie proudly serves as a teen ambassador for No Bully and has made it her mission to encourage tweens and teens to practice empathy and respect among their peers, both in everyday life and on social media. She recently scripted and appeared in a PSA video “Girls Against Bullying” starring several teen celebs/influencers as well as real girls. The video—aimed at abolishing mean girl behavior and “lifting girls up instead of tearing them down” —premiered in January 2019 as part of the #100KChooseKind global campaign.
Carrie also launched a YouTube channel Carrie’s Chronicles and has been featured as talent at BeautyCon, The Radio Disney Music Awards and The Boys of Summer 2019 Tour. She is a contributing fashion reporter for The Independent Newspaper of East Hampton, a features writer for Girls’ Life Magazine, and has been quoted in numerous media as a fashion, beauty, social media and teen expert.
