About the Author

Steven Baird is an author, amateur photographer, and 38-year newspaper compositor. He does not like speaking of himself in the first person. He has published three novels, including his latest, A Very Tall Summer, and has been writing since the age of 10. He is a slow writer.

Steven is a native Canadian living in southwest Virginia with his wife Angela, a horse, dog, cat, and a Neurotic Band of Chickens (their official stage name). He does not take himself as seriously as his portrait would suggest.

His novels are available from Amazon at



He can be reached at ordinaryhandsome1@gmail.com and would love to hear from you.

  1. Well, it’s raining up here in Bucks County. Thanks for passing it along from your corner of VA. The Child Bride’s petunias need it. Saturday morning and nothing to do? Now you can pull up the WIP and share with those of us trying to get a clue about this writing thing. I have included you in the “777 Writer’s Challenge”. See


    for the details. Jump in and share with us out here in WP land.

    1. I appreciate the challenge, and would love to join you, my writing hasn’t been going very well lately and all I could offer are scraps. It’s a struggle to find the “write” stuff. I’d love to try it when the muse decides to revisit. And I do appreciate the invite!

  2. Your writing stands out like a palm tree swaying in the breeze on a deserted beach. You’re drawn to it and can’t look away. Maybe not the proper imagery, maybe more like a train wreck, lol that you can’t resist a look at, maybe because the writing can be haunting, right? But, your work stands out. Take a break. Regroup. But, keep writing. I’ve seen no blog writing like yours. Look forward to Version 2.0. xoxo

    1. You’re very welcome, and thank you! I haven’t posted anything in the past month, until today. Right now I’m struggling with another novel and it’s a slow moving train. Thank you again, and keep on posting! 🙂
