So I'm joining a team where we do this really cool thing. On Wednesdays we do author spotlights and on Sundays we do blogger spotlights. Fun, right? Let's dive right in to our first author! Allow me to introduce Tim Baker!
When Tim Baker moved from Rhode Island to Florida in October, 2006 the only thing he had in abundance was spare time. In April, 2007 a strange dream provided him with a way to fill some of that time…by inspiring him to write a book.
Two years later that novel, Living the Dream, was released.
Since then, Tim has released seven novels, all taking place in the seaside community of Flagler Beach, the place he now calls home. He has also written a collection of short stories based upon his iconic and charismatic anti-hero Ike, as well as co-written two zombie novellas.
The rising popularity of Tim’s work has drawn comparisons to the likes of Elmore Leonard, Tim Dorsey, Carl Hiassen and Randy Wayne White…all of which Tim welcomes with pride.
When he isn’t writing Tim can be heard on Flagler Beach’s radio station Surf 97.3 FM (www.flaglerbeachradio.com) weekday mornings from 10:00-1:00 and Friday nights from 7:00-10:00.
Some of the interests he has no time for are motorcycles, scuba diving and sports of all kinds – with a special lifelong love of the Boston Red Sox.
Look for Tim’s next novel, Blood in the Water, in the fall of 2016.

And here's a little bit about his book:
"Living the Dream" is a semi-humorous crime story about a loser named Kurt who thinks that his ticket to Easy Street lies in a half-baked kidnapping plot. After the road trip from hell he arrives in Florida to find that Vicky, his intended victim, is out of town. Vicky's husband, Jimmy, is thinking of divorcing her and probably won't pay the ransom anyway. And Leslie, Jimmy's mistress, wants a piece of Kurt's action. Just to make matters worse, Kurt has a bookie, a biker and an ex-Navy SEAL all wanting a piece of his hide. Kurt had no idea that kidnapping was such hard work. His plan might work if it doesn't get him killed first.
