Author: Beth D. Carter

I am a full time writer and stay at home mom which means I watch a lot of Disney. Over and over again. I hate washing dishes but I love cooking. I hate washing clothes but I love wearing them. I try to write characters who aren't cookie cutters, ones who are full of angst but where love redeems them. I push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. Music inspires me and each story their own signature song. I hate people who don't pick up their dog's crap in public places and I really hate people who are rude and condescending. I especially hate discrimination in all and every form. The perfect place on earth is sitting in a bookstore. I love to hear from readers. I’m really easy to find on Facebook or Twitter or email me at: beth@bethdcarter.com.
