WELCOME TO BEACON STREET BOOKS

Home page for Author Anne Carter

For those who might be curious, I was born Pamela Ann Carter, and now go by Pam Ripling, my married name. When looking for a nom-de-plume at the beginning of my career, I wanted to pay homage to my late father so chose my middle (with the addition of that cute “e”) and maiden name.

In 2021, our year of “recovery”, my plans are to release four new books! Writing during the pandemic has been easy for me, so I’m committed to upping my game and getting these fun new stories into your hands.


Oh, and people often ask: why Beacon Street? Where did that come from? Those who know me know I have a deep fascination for lighthouses. Not surprisingly, many are located on streets such as Beacon Road, Beacon Way, etc. Of course, the most famous Beacon Street is in Boston, but my husband’s grandmother lived in a house on Beacon Street in Alhambra, California. Mostly, I just like the way it sounds.
