Illuminated Publishing(I Choose and I Choose Too) is a family affair. The mom, Suzin Carr, wrote the books; son Chandler Carr illustrated them (the first when he was only 7 years old); and dad, James Carr, he's their No. 1 fan. Plus he's by their side to help promote the works at various book events and other expos all over Tampa Bay.
Choose is the First Place winner in the children's book category of
the Royal Palm Literary Awards for the Florida Writer's Association for
2009 and received Honorable Mention in the Los Angeles DIY Book Awards 2010.
The Carr family lives in Lutz and through their company help support various local charities, including the Joshua House, the Children's Home, Books from the Heart, Bess the Book Bus and many more.
