Meet the Author

Jeffrey N. Baker is a Sci-Fi/Fantasy author who delights in entertaining readers of all ages. He was first published in early 2011--appearing in eFiction Magazine’s twelfth issue with his cyberpunk-noir short story, “Jazz Night.”


Later that year he was invited to participate in the “Fables For Japan” anthology. Working alongside industry leading illustrators and comic artists, Baker wrote two tales for the anthology. Striving for a traditional feel, he crafted stories involving love, loss, and the dangers of greed. “Hiroko’s Tale” and “The Brothers’ Three” appear in Volumes 1 and 3 of “Fables For Japan” respectively.


Baker keeps himself busy working on his first novel and developing a score of short stories across all genres. Check his blog often to see his thoughts on the writing process and the self-publishing industry.

    Cute short story

    This is a short story of 14 pages. Though short the story was cute like a fairytale. I would rrcommend this for anyone who likes fairytale style stories.

    Beautiful Love Story

    This is a very well written story! All of these contrasting elements were deftly woven together into this spectacular ending. It has romance and magic, desperation and heroics, arrogance and humility, so much of everything you want in a fairy tale. It is appropriate for children, a very clean read and not gory, but it would also appeal to adult readers. My only complaint about this book is that I thought it could be longer. I wanted to stay with these characters, to see what else might happen. It is similar to The Velveteen Rabbit. How can we become real? I would definitely recommend this for all age groups.
