Beth Carter, Author
After being a bank vice president and a hospital public relations director, Beth Carter shed her suits and heels to wave good-bye to corporate America. She doesn’t miss the eight o’clock meetings whatsoever and now happily writes from home in her pj’s. While drinking copious amounts of coffee, she pens novels and children’s picture books.
Carter’s newest release, SLEEPING WITH ELVIS, will be available August 2016. The author has always loved Elvis (even admits to kissing the television when he performed!) and went to his last concert two months before he passed away. When she attended a concert by an Elvis impersonator, a plot was born! She realized she could help bring the King’s legacy to a new generation through her fiction. Read the blurb here.
Carter’s double award-winning debut women’s fiction, THURSDAYS AT COCONUTS, released August 13, 2014, by Soul Mate Publishing. The women’s fiction is laced with humor, suspense and romance. Tagline: Three BFFs, hippies, neurotic brides, and sexy bad-boy cops. What could go wrong? Read an excerpt here. Book 2 in the Coconuts series is in process.
SANTA BABY by Beth Carter appears in an eight-author heartfelt, rather steamy, holiday anthology, SIZZLE IN THE SNOW, by Soul Mate Publishing. The collection was released in November, 2015. Carter’s novelette shows the struggle of a single mom who has a hot fling, a Christmas baby, and an even hotter OB/GYN. Read the blurb here.
Additionally, Carter has several short stories and poems published in five anthologies and her six-word memoirs appear in four collections alongside famous writers and celebrities. Most days you’ll find the author writing and sipping a skinny vanilla latte at Starbucks or possibly shopping at T.J. Maxx. She was born and raised in the Midwest and also lives part-time in Florida. She has 25 years’ experience in marketing healthcare, banking, and green heat.
