Introducing New Member, M. Baker

Please join me in welcoming our new SFR Brigade member, M. Baker.

Tell us a little about yourself:

My name is M.Baker. I write urban fantasy and spec-fic, not to be confused with paranormal romance. I like reading and writing urban, because I can freely combine all of the genres that I love without being hemmed in by a specific style. Right now I'm working on two different series: Kayla Blackstone and Jinxi Cooper.

We’d love to hear more about your writing.

I like writing different things. Although I write a lot of urban fantasy, I have deep interests in sci-fi and many stories that I am working on, or at least putting away notes on are in that genre.

Tell us about your current WIP.

I have two urban fantasies that I’m working on editing… I am going to be doing a story that begins with the receipt of an e-mail. I’m currently working on a short story involving, a body morph who assassinates tumblers…

What do you like about writing SFR?


What do you find challenging about it?

Coming up with new ideas…. This genre has very much shaped the changes in our own world and I think I would like to be in some small way a part of that.

What is your favorite SF book or movie?

Enemy Mine

If you could have a robot that did one chore/task and only one, what would you choose?

Dishes… oh wait don’t we have one of those….

What SFR book would you most like to be stranded in and with whom?
Um.. Riddick… , or Doubleblind with the insect. He’s really cool.

Favorite mode of fictional travel?

Jump space. (from Grimspace, I think is the name of the book. Anne Aguirre. )

You can find Vile Mote on text novel, my blog, and my website… It only works in internet explorer right now… I’m working out the kinks please be patient.
I also have a page on facebook.

Dragon Shadows
Jinxi Cooper is a bounty hunter, she lives alone, socializes as little as possible, and is generally in a bad mood. That all changes when one of her contacts hires her to deliver a box to the local Drakon Tatsu. Mayhem ensues when a rival Tatsu jumps her and a book falls out of the box, the second she touches the book she can’t get rid of it. She gives it away, begs it to stay where it will be safe, all for not. It keeps turning up at the most inopportune moments, much to the detriment of her nerves. If that weren't enough she has to deal with an irritating irrational Tatsu lord Rift Draven. Who insists she give his stolen property back.

Kayla Blackstone is a slave, though she wasn't always one. At one time she’d been a highly sought after Bounty hunter, a runner. She’d never really been curious about what she carried just that the paycheck didn't bounce. But that all changed the night the Mage Hunters came.... and Keaton bought her body and soul.
Now she's been given a second chance, a run for her freedom.... when she's handed a small brown bag to deliver before midnight, with the promise, if she completes the run he'll let her go.


  1. Hi M! Oh, those pesky genre labels - they do get blurred sometimes, don't they? I do agree with you on SF, though - the possibilities give me shivers.

  2. Welcome to the brigade! Great interview!
