Steven Carter is an American author of short stories and two novels.
Carter's short stories have appeared in Antioch Review, Tin House, Northwest Review, and Mississippi Review, among others. His first novel, I Was Howard Hughes, was published in 2003 by Bloomsbury Press. His second novel, Famous Writers School, based on the actual scam school for writers, was published by Counterpoint Press in 2006.
In its review on Famous Writers School, Publishers Weekly describes Carter as having "a terrific ear for the rumblings of the human ego and an intuitive sense of how fiction is often substituted for truth—and vice versa," though the characters are "lightly sketched".
