Troy Baker was born in Tampa, FL and raised in the small town of Lutz. He graduated from Atlanta Christian College in 1978. Loving to work with his hands, he pursued a carrer in fine woodworking. Today he lives in southern Alabama with his wife Linda.
Troy has two sons, Ben and Sam. Ben is a staff sargeant in the U S Marine Corps and Sam is a welder in Central Florida.
From his teen years, Troy loved the writings of the likes of Louis L'Amour, and Edger Rice Burroughs. Later on, Tom Clancey and John D. McDonald, Jack Higgins and Clive Cussler were added to his list. After enjoying such great stories, is it any wonder that one day he decided to try his hand at it.
