Carlyn Beccia has been painting and performing various acts of circus baboonery since she was a wee young girl.  She first tested her own creativity in the human cannonball act by projecting her sister across the room.  Her sister had to have stitches, but Carlyn knew she was destined for circus stardom.

Carlyn attended the University of Massachusetts on a 4-year art scholarship and graduated in 1995.

In 2005, Carlyn was the Grand Prize Portfolio Winner in the Society of Children's Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) portfolio exhibition.

In 2006, she was awarded a certificate of merit in The Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Illustration West 44 Annual and she was also the Grand Prize Portfolio Winner in the New England, Society of Children's Writers & Illustrators (NEW ENGLAND SCBWI) portfolio exhibition .

In 2008, Who put the B in the Ballyhoo? was the Golden Kite Honor Book for Illustration.

Currently, Carlyn lives in Lynnfield, MA with two ferocious cats, her stunt double baby girl and her famous Strongman husband.
