About the Author
Rhode Island native Tim Baker is the author of seven novels and two novellas. His love for reading came early in life when he discovered Treasure Island and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn at the age of ten. A high school journalism class and a creative writing course in college turned his love of reading into a love of writing. In 1988, Baker began writing a book called Full Circle, which combined his love of writing with his interest in Karma. A chain of events caused the unfinished, handwritten manuscript to be tucked into a box, where it remains today. During the ‘90s his time was divided between raising a son, owning a home and building a career in engineering, leaving no time for writing. By the time Baker moved to Florida in 2006, his dream of penning a novel was all but forgotten…until one night when a dream rekindled his passion for writing. In April 2007, Tim Baker had a dream about two old friends and a submerged box of gold bars. The next day he found himself trying to figure out the story behind the dream. By the end of that day, the impetus of a story had formed and he had scribbled out two chapters in a spiral notebook. One year later, his first novel Living the Dream was complete and the dam had burst—he soon followed up with his second novel Water Hazard. His third novel No Good Deed was his first novel to be placed with TrIndie Publishing (in 2011). His well-intended plans to revive and finish Full Circle are still percolating in the background.

I first met Tim through a blog interview and seeing that he wrote crime fiction and resided in Florida, my home state, I introduced him to my husband, a rocket scientist and avid crime fiction reader. After reading the first book, Living the Dream, he immediately bought the remaining five; No Good Deed, Pump it Up, Water hazard, Unfinished Business, and Backseat to Justice. Tim recently released a new novel, Eyewitness Blues, and the rocket scientist quickly snapped it up. He shared these with me, and now I’m addicted. Ike has become a household name in our home.
If you already know Ike, you’ll be glad to see he’s busier than ever, and learn some things you never knew. If you haven’t been introduced to Ike, this collection of short stories is a wonderful way to make his acquaintance. He’s definitely a guy you want in your corner. What’s more, Ike has developed a fan base and several fans have written short stories about him, sometimes pairing him in stories with their own characters. Always supporting other authors, Tim has included these contributions, so this anthology offers the added benefit of reading some terrific works by other talented writers.
Have you ever wondered what your favorite characters are doing in-between the books you read about them? Tim gives us a whole year of Ike in these clever short stories and his fans creatively blend this memorable anti-hero into their works. This is an entertaining collection you are certain to enjoy.
...Ike’s principal source of income comes from heavy-duty collection work for a local bookmaker in Florida’s Flagler Beach and St. Augustine, and provides a baseline for the stories...
...Tim Baker’s ear for punchy narrative runs through this rapid-fire collection, in which a few hand-picked author pals have also contributed... Ike is an enduring character you can’t help but take to, although some of his methods will have you winching...
