Malcolm John Baker was born in Salisbury, England, in 1945. He is now retired and lives in Florida writing adventure books. His stories relate to events either in history or current affairs but are written as fiction adventure. His next two projects relate to adventure in the Alaskan gold rush and a fantasy book about giants that once roamed the Earth. He has recently acquired the title of Lord of Hougun Manor in the Lake District of Cumbria, England, but he answers to Malcolm if you want to contact him.
