Surviving My Happy Childhood
Writing his stories from his Leelanau Peninsula home, Carpenter’s work, with a very distinct Midwest flavor, is sure to stir memories as well as it entertains and brings new light to what’s considered normal.
The stories are placed in a chronological timeline of sorts, from childhood through to teen to young adult. What’s great news in these times of such bad news is that he confesses he had a happy childhood and is having a happy adulthood as well.
Carpenter grew up in East Grand Rapids, Michigan and is married to Rebecca Reynolds, a writer / producer. Jim, along with his wife and Larry Brand, own the Michigan-based film company, 8180 Films.
