October Speaker Beth Carter Talks About Marketing


Beth Carter is the author of two picture books, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE? and THE MISSING KEY. Her short stories and poems are published in three ECHOES OF THE OZARKS anthologies, as well as A Bad Hair Day anthology. Carter’s six-word memoirs were published in IT ALL CHANGED IN AN INSTANT, alongside famous authors and celebrities and SIX WORDS AT WORK, another six-word memoir collection.

In marketing for over 20 years in the fields of healthcare, banking and green heat, Carter has received awards for her writing and was previously a bank vice president. After 16 years of being a single mom and working in corporate America, Carter happily shed her bank suits, heels, and 8 a.m. meetings and now writes from home in her pj’s. She fully admits to a slight obsession with T.J. Maxx, skinny vanilla lattes and guacamole (though, not at the same time).

Carter lives in the Midwest and is a member of Ozarks Romance Authors, Sleuths’ Ink Mystery Writers, and Ozarks Writers League. She founded the one-month writing challenge, JANO, for Sleuths’ Ink in 2009 and served as vice president of Sleuths.
