Formerly a bank VP, Beth Carter shed her suits and heels to pen novels and children's picture books at a certain mid-life age. She much prefers writing at Starbucks to decades of 8 o'clock meetings.

Author of the popular, award-winning Coconuts series featuring THURSDAYS AT COCONUTS, CHAOS AT COCONUTS (Book 2), BABIES AT COCONUTS (Book 3), COWBOYS AT COCONUTS (Book 4), as well as SLEEPING WITH ELVIS, MIRACLE ON AISLE TWO, and SANTA BABY, a novelette.

Ray Bradbury
“...if you are writing without zest, without gusto, without love, without fun, you are only half a writer. It means you are so busy keeping one eye on the commercial market, or one ear peeled for the avant-garde coterie, that you are not being yourself. You don't even know yourself. For the first thing a writer should be is-- excited. He should be a thing of fevers and enthusiasms.”
Ray Bradbury
