Jane Timm Baxter


The true infant Jane was replaced with a mischievous, occasionally malevolent, fey changeling in 1976, who grew up contemplating how she could use her powers without divulging her true nature. In 1995, she tricked human James Baxter into marrying her, and then meticulously began to write down the chronicles of her ancestors. Disguising her work as fiction, the creature known as Jane Timm Baxter finally achieved her goal of infiltrating the world of publishing when she decided to publish and market her work in e-book format. Currently, she is continuing to encode secret messages to her kin in the form of “novels,” and believes that world domination is just a few more words away.

In her rush to “fit in” among the humans, Baxter unfortunately chose a human vessel that is less than efficient in the realm of health. Having not expected such an ongoing battle with her vessel, Baxter is currently limited in the time and energy she can apply toward her goal of world domination through art and writing. To aid her in her schemes, she employs the mischievous help of “The Chi-Baxter Pack” – four fairy spirits inhabiting the tiny bodies of canis familiaris chihuahuas. At this time, nothing else may be revealed concerning the true nature and mission of The Chi-Baxter Pack, under penalty of death.

Those who are familiar only with Jane Timm Baxter in her human disguise, frequently describe her as any and all of the following: interesting, weird, amusing, annoying, talented, dark, disturbed, sick (as in physically ill,) sick (as in mentally ill) and unique. Whether or not any of these words are accurate descriptions of any part of Baxter remains to be proven

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I was seven years old when I first began writing stories, and they were all horror. I did not remember starting that young until my grandmother brought out a notebook of my childhood writings that she had saved for me. Obviously, being only seven years old, the stories were no longer than a page, and it was very clear that a child wrote them. However, two of my current manuscripts in progress come from the childhood ideas I penciled into that notebook. I have no doubt that the motivation to write those little horror stories is the same which causes me to write my current novels: I was six months old when I was diagnosed with night terrors. Instead of growing out of them, as most children do, I seem to have grown into them.
