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
