Carylee Carrington

When Carylee Carrington, also known as the Tutu Queen, stepped onto the playground that day, she didn’t expect her life’s path would take a sharp turn towards authorship and advocacy. Yet, here she is, sharing her inspiring transformation from a young girl shaped by her mother’s educational influence to a beacon for diversity in children’s literature. Our heartfelt conversation uncovers the pivotal moments that drove Carylee  to pen stories that not only reflect her son’s experiences but also resonate with children of all backgrounds. She details her jump into self-publishing with a fervor for fostering literacy and arming kids with the life skills they need to thrive, wrapped in stories that celebrate their identities and encourage empathy.

Moving beyond the written word, Carylee captivates us as she recounts how embracing her Tutu Queen persona has added an unforgettable flair to her brand. With anecdotes from her vibrant Instagram page to tales of her unforgettable “Wheel of Fortune” appearance, she illustrates the potency of authentic marketing and the importance of crafting genuine connections with your audience. Whether you’re an aspiring author, entrepreneur, or someone who cherishes the power of storytelling, Carolee’s insights on creating content that dances off the page and into the hearts of children—while staying true to your vision—will leave you inspired to put on your own metaphorical tutu and make your mark on the world.
