Sci-fi was a passion since childhood, especially action packed sci-fi movies. She thanks Anne Rice and Lestat for introducing her to vampire fiction. When she started to write - A Chance for Charity (The Immortal Ones) - the story poured out and S L Baum fell in love with the writing process.
She describes herself as a crafter by nature and she loves to scrapbook, sew, bead, etc and has has a room in her home dedicated to crafts: Paper, ribbons, stickers, die-cuts, etc. She used to be in the handcrafted wedding/party invitation business.
Her other love is baking, loving cookie creation as she likes to see how many ingredients can be crammed into a recipe. Her favourite cookie is an oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chip, toffee bit cookie. To ask for this recipe try visiting http://slbaum.com.
As well as author, S L Baum is part time teacher, crafter, baker, and full time wife and mother - she descibes the latter as the best job in the world!
