Robin R Baker

Biography

I am a mother of 3 and a nana of 4. I have been running for 3 years now and still planning to do a half marathon before I retire from running. I was born in Elizabeth NJ but now reside in Maryland.
Writing has been my outlet for a while now and I hope to continue to be an inspiration to others with my words of floetry and entertain with my stories. Not that I have a lot, but I have ideas and hope to get them all out soon.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing poetry late in age maybe around age 19...just sitting on my front porch by myself, I had a pen an pad and just wrote:
Alone

Quiet, are the streets
Still, is the air
All by myself
Alone, I am here
Thoughts on my mind
But no one around to share
Wishes of someone here with me
By my side, right here.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I actually just fell into writing. It was nothing that I seeked out to find. I had written a little snipit of something I felt growing up and shared it with a friend. They asked what it was because it sounded like it could be a story...so one day, I sat down and began to elaborate on those few sentences.
