About the work available to read here
People who don’t know her very well call her Sweet Sim. She doesn’t know why. The alliterative appeal, probably. Or they imagine her vanilla exterior coats a similarly inoffensive inside. Carter begs to differ.
Also on the agenda, a Bildungsroman novel in the final throes of one last edit (She hopes!) and then the hunt for the right agent. Bildungsroman for those who don’t know is a fancy-schmancy word for coming of age, particularly appropriate perhaps when your main character isn’t a teenager but a 23-year-old protagonist named Alex, short for Alexandra.
More on Alex when the time is right. In the meantime, more About Sim. Born in Britain in the '50s, her parents wandering ways meant their family of five—an older brother, a younger sister—spent a few years in Tripoli and Turkey before coming to North America in the early 1960s. Carter came of age in Canada with the British Invasion before the family took a detour to Puerto Rico and finally landed in L.A. She’s worked as a journalist, a copywriter, realtor, a media buyer, a Universal Studios tour guide, a substitute teacher, a film & television production coordinator and likely a few others her brain is too addled to recall.
Sim has also embarked on a virtual adventure, taking an imaginary walking tour of London. Tag along on her journey Above Ground on the London Underground.
Like everyone else in Hollywood, Sim has a script in a drawer. Her husband works in the film business and their son is a fledgling writer/director teaching himself the ropes.
