Timothy Louis Baker – Fantastic Florida Fun

What is your most recent book? Tell us a bit about it.

Fantastic Florida Fun concerns the criminal and drug arena primarily of the Brandon, Florida area.

Teenage Mark Mitchell is outcast from his home in Indiana and while traveing to the sunny Florida orange grove area he picks up Melissa Monroe. Who invites Markt to come live with her at her father’s house and suggests Mark sell drugs for her father Al to pay for his stay there.

Mark takes her up on the event but he doesn’t know how really deep Al is involved in the criminal world of the area. Al is a kingpin and soon has Mark deeply criminally involved,
Mark does not suspect this from the very beginning but little by little becomes aware that something between Melissa and Al is not quite right. He suspects some sort of incestuous scandal but does not understand either how or why it may be happening.

Tell us something about yourself.

I became involved in crime, drugs and hitchhiking at a very early age. I have chosen to write books about the topics I know and I have spent some considerable amount of time in the Florida area where my newest novel is based on location.

What inspired you to write this book?

Since it was a topic that I was familiar, it was easy to me. I have hitchhiked and otherwise traveled throughout Florida and back-in-the-day I was involved in crime and drugs.

How did you choose the title?

Because of the content of the book, location and nature of the subject, I thought it would be a ‘catchy’ title.

How did you know you wanted to be a writer? How did you get started?

Because of an interesting lifestyle I knew a lot of readers would be interested in is how I knew I wanted to become an author.

I got started with a typewriter to try it out, then when I became serious I graduated to computers.

Did you learn anything from writing and publishing this book? What?

By trying to accomplish this title I learned more about what I was fully capable of.

If you were doing it all over again, what would you do differently?

Nothing, it came off just exactly like I wanted it to when the creative idea for Fantastic Florida Fun occurred to me.

Are you working on your next book? What can you tell us about it?

I am currently exercising the idea of completing a historical novel that I started a few years ago.

What is the best advice you could give other writers about writing or publishing?

If you can, create your idea, memorize it, form a mental visiualization of exactly how you want your story line to develop and then start writing. If you have any improvements add them in as you go along and don’t be afraid to rewrite particular passages as necessary to fulfill your original visualized plot. That’s exactly how I wrote this one.

Who is the perfect reader for your book?

Teenage on up with an appetite for fiction crime mystery thrillers would love my Fantastic Florida Fun. Especially if they have ever had contact with the crime and drug world themselves.

Where can readers learn more about you and your book?
