Happy New Year! Escape with a Writer Sunday welcomes author & publisher Marci Baun!

A fifth generation California, Marci Baun has had a passion for books from an early age. Unless climbing trees, swimming, catching frogs, or getting into the usual hijinks with her friends, she had one everywhere she went. That passion turned into desire to create her own stories. She wrote her first one in sixth grade, decided it sucked, and promptly lost it. It took her nearly 20 years before she wrote her next story. That only happened after she opened her own publishing house and had published books by some very talented authors.

Her stories, ranging from horror/science fiction to paranormal to contemporary romance and beyond, are influenced by her early years in Central California and her travels around the States and the world. But no matter the genre, you’ll always find a love story winding its way through it. Because . . . love.
She lives in California with her husband, her child, and two cats…

The Bakery Lady (Wild Blue Mysteries, Book 3)
From the moment Leo Blue meets the local tattoo artist's sister Christina, he's drawn into a web of bread dough and lies. Christina Davidson has returned to Packham with a duffle bag full of secrets.

He promises to help set things straight and plans to bring husband and wife together for Christmas—even if it costs him his sanity and the love of his life.

"I could visualize that bookstore, smell the coffee and pastries, and see the colorful characters. This book has lots of twists and turns, and I never knew who to trust, all the way to the end. I'll look for future book…
