About Me


Hello, my name is S.L. Carpenter. I wear many different hats in this weird little world. I'm a writer, an artist, a family man and cookie lover. My greatest joys are making people laugh and squirm and scratch their heads at my unique style of storytelling. I call California home and have been here my whole life. I know...poor me.

I've been writing my special brand of insane little stories for many years, but it's only been in the last two decades that I've managed to persuade folks to publish them. My backlist now includes single titles, anthologies and several books co-written with my writing partner (and webmistress) Sahara Kelly. They are available at Amazon.com/Kindle Unlimited.

Please note: I have recently received the rights back to many of my earlier publications, so my book list is shorter these days. I am in the process of revising and re-editing these books. Look for your old favorites in new exciting versions soon.

So dig around and find out a bit more if you like - just excuse the mess. I'm a guy. What can I say?

I hope you'll like the things in my site and if you want to keep in touch with what's happening, check out some of the links here, and touch base with me on Facebook, or better still, subscribe to my newsletter.

You can find me online if you know where to look...

I do have a Twitter account, although I will confess I don't tweet very often. A better bet is Facebook, where I have finally put together my Author Page, with a promise to keep it as up to date as I can. Come like me. And there's my Amazon page. Everything books!

Of course, I encourage you to subscribe to my newsletter, because I will sometimes offer contests and cool prizes. So that's highly recommended if you want to stay on top of what's happening in my crazy world.

It wouldn't be my website without a mention of my Art! For more years than I can remember, I've enjoyed creating various kinds of art, and these days I am very pleased to be working with my peers in the publishing world. I enjoy making an author's vision come to life; giving them a cover for their book that makes them even more excited to go out and talk about it. A lot of my own cover art is up at Deviant Art, and my writing partner Sahara Kelly and I have formed a little art business. Together we've produced ebook and print book covers, and a whole bunch of other promotional graphics. Here are the links to some of this stuff... please come visit?
