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. Steve, great to meet a fellow blogger who shares a passion for writing. Congratulations on publishing your first novel…have you got another one in the works? My second novel is going to print in a couple of weeks. It’s even more exciting the second time around!

    1. Hi Beverley

      I’ve barely begun my next novel, though I have a few on hand that need some editing. I’m excited about publishing so I’ve been blogging in order to gain an audience. Another week, and it will be ready to go. Thanks for your well wishes!


      1. I started a blog for the same reason…to build a platform for my books. Do you plan to publish electronically as well? I am still trying to sort through all the choices out there.


    1. Thank you. My wife did the portrait and I think it’s supposed to make me look regal, draped in a velvet robe. In fact, it’s an old hoodie that probably needed washing. She’s a wonderful artist, but she was supposed to make me look like Robert Redford, not like I was wearing something Redford might wear.

  3. Steven,
    I just love your portrait. Please give my regards to your wife on her talent. She did capture the laughter in your eyes.
    Your writing flows so easily. It is a pleasure to read. Your first novel intrigues me, I am looking forward to reading it.
    I am also in love with your photography. What you do with flowers amazes me. The way they dance. You are a talent all around.
    I have enjoyed following you. Virginia is a beautiful state.
    Best Regards, CC
