About

When I was about six, I defaced my copy of Stuart Little.  I didn't like the ending, so I rewrote it, right there in pen on the last page.  I've been a writer ever since--and I still have that copy of Stuart Little.  

I've worked as a septic system tester, a lifeguard, a school uniform salesman, an editor, a freelance writer, and currently I'm a Professor of Creative Writing and English, and every one of those jobs taught me a lot about writing. 

I love to write and talk about writing.  I write young adult novels, a Southern Gothic paranormal series, short stories, and writing guides, and I've had stories published in literary journals like Copper Nickel, The Cream City Review, Eleven Eleven, and The Southeast Review. 

Besides the things here on Wattpad, I have lots of other books for sale, both as ebooks and paperbacks.  You can see them all and read excerpts on my website right at http://www.bakerlawley.com/books

Hi, this story broke my heart and then made me believe in love. I missed my chance once but got another right after. hopefully before I die I will get one more chance at true love. I was blessed with two beautiful energetic kids and I'm thankful.. I'm sharing your story because it touched my heart.  thank you for giving us hope.
Hi. Stealing the show was awesome. It made me smile, laugh and cry a lot. I can relate to a lot of it. You don't always get what you want; but doesn't hurt to try right and to go out there and do what you want to. Thankyou for this amazing story. Inspiring.

Thanks!  I can't put all my work up on Wattpad because I'm a writer for a living and have to eat and pay bills and stuff (being a grown up kinda sucks sometimes...).  

BUT!  The offer above still stands!  If you want to read the next book for free, just write an honest review of this one (Stealing the Show) on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, or anywhere, and email me the link to the review.  I'll send you back an ebook or pdf file of the next book as a thank you.  It's a nice win-win for everybody!

Aww, thanks for loving the book.  Sorry you feel that way about recommending it.  I make a living as a writer and can't afford to give all my work away for free.  

The offer still stands, though: if you or anybody wanna write an honest review of Stealing the Show on Amazon or anywhere, just send me the link to your review and I'll send you the next book in the trilogy as an ebook or pdf.  It's a win-win for everybody, I think!  All the details are above in this chapter!
