M L S Baisch


M L S BAISCH writes for children because kids deserve a world with good stories. Her tales are fantastical, but also have messages for those of us who live in the real world. They may, and often do, highlight the importance of making good choices. Generally it's someone's bad choice that makes a good story. The story is in the difficulties that result and the circuitous route taken to undo what's been done. If there's a bit of fun along the way, so much the better!

M L S BAISCH lives in rural Idaho with her husband, a Sphynx cat named Bugs, and a Doberman Pinscher named Harry.
