21 Books Before 21
Driven by a love of writing (and a taste for sweet treats), CARRIE created her first book series, The Cupcake Club, when she was only in second grade. Co-written with her mom, NY Times Bestselling author Sheryl Berk, the series has published 12 books to date, sold 400,000+ copies worldwide, and has gone on to become 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 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 this past May at Book Expo America and Book Con with book two of the series set to hit shelves January 2019.
In addition to publishing 21 books to date, 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 250 articles on the site to date.
CARRIE is also an influencer in her own right, showcasing her personal style with the city as her canvas, and working with top fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands, including FOREO, REVOLVE, Alice + Olivia, Madewell, and Daniel Wellington.
CARRIE was recently profiled in Teen Boss! Magazine for being a real kid "networking her way to success," and her personal essays and fashion features have appeared in NY Metro Parents Magazine, The East Hampton Independent Newspaper and Girls' Life. She has contributed to Seventeen Magazine, and was also an Instagram Live correspondent for Girls’ Life, covering red carpet arrivals and celeb interviews at The Teen Choice Awards.
CARRIE also 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” is slated to premiere in January 2019.
