Carolyn Sherwin Bailey was born in 1875, in Hoosick Falls, NY. She later lived in Temple, Hew Hampshire, and NH would become the setting of several of her children's books.

Bailey is also cited as a playwright, but it appears her plays have all gone out of print.

The Carolyn Sherwin Bailey Collection, a "unique storehouse of children's literature," is housed in the Rare Book Room of the Hilton C. Buley Library of Southern Connecticut State University, in New Haven.

Bailey died in 1961.
