Our Team

Larry Carpenter - CEO

Clovercroft Publishing is headed by Larry Carpenter. Larry is the President and CEO and has over 36 years of experience in the publishing industry which he brings to his clients. But what really helps our clients isn't just that Larry has been in the industry, it’s what he has done in the industry. First, Larry is one of the few people who have worked in all aspects of book publishing, having worked for a publisher, a wholesale distributor, and a full-service distributor. After finishing his MBA at the University of North Carolina, he started in sales and marketing and eventually headed up two major companies. Larry knows all parts of the publishing industry well. Through Clovercroft Publishing, he can make that experience work for you!

Shane Crabtree - COO

Also assisting our clients is our COO, Shane Crabtree. Shane brings his project management experience from the biomedical field to guide our authors through the entire process of publishing. What Shane enjoys most is hearing or seeing the author’s eyes light up when they see the first copy of their book! When the author has questions, Shane is the one they will turn to for those answers. As an avid reader and brought up on books by his mother, former bookstore owner, and his father, former English teacher, Shane has always had an excitement for books.

Shane has a B.S. in Physics from Wright State University, and a M.S. in Biostatistics from Middle Tennessee State University. He is a book nerd, loves sports and travel, and enjoys spending time with his family.

Christian Carpenter - Production Manager

The most recent addition to Clovercroft Publishing is Christian Carpenter who is our Production Manager. He brings to the team the necessary attention to detail when comes to information and data about our authors’ books. He is our reporting machine! Christian enjoys the outdoors, online gaming, and reading.

Christian attended the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY receiving his Bachelor of Science in biology and also minored in Chemistry.

We are looking for manuscripts that are captivating and candid, and authors who want to tell their story on their own terms.
