Tracy Baker

I was born in South Dakota and made it all the way to Nebraska before giving up. I’ve written for a living since 1996, mainly for tech and gaming outlets, but along the way kind souls have paid me to create everything from ginormous grant applications to full-length Shakespearean plays (complete with music).
