I’m Tim Baker…of the Rhode Island Bakers…our lineage began with the birth of Francis Baker in Hertfordshire, England circa 1611. Francis came to America in 1635 and, well, fast-forward to 1980 when I embarked on a relatively uneventful 20 year career in Architecture and Engineering, followed by short stints in the natural gas industry, construction and ice cream sales before moving to Florida in 2006 where I have lived ever since.
But wait! There’s more…
I love dogs and spent most of the 90s as a volunteer puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, raising and socializing potential guide dogs.
I studied and taught martial arts, I’m a lifetime member of Red Sox Nation, I’m left handed and I have never really enjoyed getting my hair cut.
My first attempt at writing came in 1988 when I began writing a novel called Full Circle. It was a story about the far reaching effects one man’s actions can have on people he has never even met. Unfortunately without the use of a computer or even a typewriter I shelved the project due to the difficulties of trying to construct a novel completely by hand (in other words: writer’s cramp).
In early 2007 I had a bizarre dream, which inspired my first novel, appropriately called Living the Dream, and I’ve been cranking out books non-stop ever since.
My seventh novel will be released in August, 2014.
My books are fast-paced, off-beat crime stories set in Flagler Beach and St. Augustine, Florida. They’re full of colorful characters and loaded with unexpected and often humorous twists and turns. I have also co-written two zombie novellas and written a few short stories for horror anthologies.
If you have any questions you can find me all over the internet – I’ll be happy to give you the inside scoop.

Yay!! One of my favourite authors! In fact, I’m spending the weekend with Ike and Brewski, reading “No Good Deed” and “Backseat to Justice”!
My husband is a big crime novel reader. i’ll have to pass this on to him. We live in Florida and he also loves regional pieces.
