Lee Baker has been writing songs since middle school. As a member of several bands, he became the primary lyricist, writing a huge collection of songs that were never used. He did study poetry in college, but it was the sermon poets and metaphysical poets that struck his interest and have been an influence in his work.
Lee feels that while setting goals is important in the writing process, he has learned from a friend-writer that it is "allowing people to read your work and get honest feedback" that has been crucial. "You always grow exponentially more from your critics than from your fans."
Lee's inspiration for this collection was people that had an impact, places that have inspired, and things, actually concepts more than inanimate objects.
"I really enjoyed the process of writing this book and writing is always cheaper than counseling," says Lee Baker. "It's a good outlet for crazy people. In my life, crazy is in abundant supply."
Lee Baker is a Louisiana native who currently lives in Florida with his wife and 2 young children.
