My name is Taya R. Baker, but I write under the pen name T. R. Baker. By day I work for a state court judge; by night I write, copy edit for new authors, and provide scoping services to court reporters. I’m the oldest of my parents’ four children, and the only girl. I’ve lived in Ohio, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Maryland, and Georgia (three times). I’m a dog lover, but some years ago I also fell in love with cats, too. I have been told that my super power is listening. I’ve always been a good listener – little did I know how much that would benefit me as a writer. Please know, any and everything you tell me is subject to be included in a story (the names are changed to protect the innocent).
