Steven Carter was born in New York City and raised in New Hyde Park, New York.

Carter's first book on commitmentphobia, Men Who Can't Love, gained even more popularity when it was featured in the film When Harry Met Sally, and later, in the Julia Roberts/Brad Pitt film The Mexican.

Prior to beginning his career as an author, Steven Carter was the Director of Tennis at the world-renowned Little Dix Bay Hotel in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands [1] and Head Tennis Pro at the Dorado Beach Hotel in Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico[2]. It has been suggested that some of his early insights into relationships were formulated during these years as he struggled with his own commitment conflicts.
