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 and you can read them for free with your Kindle Unlimited subscription.

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, you can check out some of the links here, and touch base with me on Facebook.

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!

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 recent work  is up at Deviant Art, so if you'd like to see some of my images, that's the place to go. Here are the links ... please come visit?
