It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Tim Baker was born and raised in Warwick, Rhode Island.
After graduating from The Wentworth Institute of Technology in 1980 he embarked on a career in Architecture and Engineering. Along the way he has also worked in the natural gas industry, construction and ice cream sales.
In his spare time he enjoys a wide variety of activities including sports of all kinds, music, photography, model building and, of course, writing.
An avid dog lover, Tim was a volunteer puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, raising and socializing potential guide dogs.
He has also studied and taught martial arts.
Inspired by his interest in Karma and the unexplained forces of the universe, he made his first serious attempt at writing in 1988 when he began writing a novel entitled Full Circle, a story about the far reaching effects that one man’s actions can have on people he has never even met.
Unfortunately without the use of a computer or even a typewriter he shelved the project due to the difficulties of trying to construct a novel completely by hand.
Even though Living the Dream is his first published novel he plans on completing Full Circle once his next novel Water Hazard is published.
Currently, Tim is enjoying life in Palm Coast, Florida.
