Occupation Marketer/Writer/Instructor
Location Midwest, United States
Introduction After being a bank VP and a hospital PR Director, Beth Carter shed her suits and heels and waved bye-bye to corporate America. She now happily writes from home in her pj's and has three children's picture books published: WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE? THE MISSING KEY and SANTA'S SECRET. Carter's debut women's fiction, THURSDAYS AT COCONUTS, will be out August 2014 by Soul Mate Publishing. She also has short stories and poems published in several anthologies and and six-word memoirs in three six-word memoir collections alongside famous writers and celebrities. A fan of marketing after having worked in that field for 20 years, most days you'll find the author sipping a skinny vanilla latte at Barnes & Noble if she's not at T.J. Maxx or at home writing.

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

No. But I rarely open them under water since I wear contacts.
