Keith R. Baker

Keith R. Baker was born in Chicago, Illinois to working class parents of Irish and German descent. His first paid writing job was with a syndicated group of suburban newspapers in the Chicago area. As a 23-year-old columnist, Keith was awarded a 1st Place by the Illinois Newspaper Association.

Always looking to avoid boredom, Keith tried various occupations in several industries including pharmaceutical manufacturing, insurance, construction, teaching, food manufacturing and distribution, public speaking and politics. He has been a volunteer fire-fighter and EMT.

While Keith's interests include genealogical and historical research, he is more at home in the outdoors and prefers living in very rural settings, "far from the madding crowd." He writes Historical, Military, and Western novels about people and facts gathered during decades of research.

Favorite authors that have influenced and inspired Keith's writing include such notables as: James Fennimore Cooper, Charles Dickens, Kenneth Roberts, Willa Cather, A.B.Guthrie, Jr., J.R.R. Tolkien, Frank McCourt, John Jakes, Michael and Jeff Shaara, Bernard Cornwell, J.D. Robb, Peter Bowen and many others.
