Carrie Doyle Karasyov lives with her husband and two sons in New York City and East Hampton, NY. A fan of mystery and crime novels, a cooking enthusiast, a former employee of The Barefoot Contessa store during her college days, and a generally nosy person, Carrie combined all of her interests to create Antonia Bingham, the foodie innkeeper and reluctant detective character who stars in the Hamptons Murder Mystery series. Carrie is the bestselling author of six novels (written as Carrie Karasyov), as well as a Contributing Editor to Hamptons magazine. She is currently developing an animated series she has co-written with her 14 and 12 year old sons. Visit Carrie’s author site at www.carriekarasyov.com.
