Profile: Nancy Baker

Author Photo Nancy Baker

Nancy Baker blames her life-long love of horror and fantasy fiction on the first horror story she can remember: The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin by Beatrix Potter.  She dabbled in rock and roll (writing lyrics and singing in basement bands during her university years) before switching to writing fiction.  She made her first professional sale in 1988, to Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone magazine and has subsequently published 4 novels.  She is at work (slowly, very slowly) on her fifth and avoids writing by gardening, making jam, and drinking martinis.

She is happily married and has neither children nor cats.

Fright into Flight edited by Amber Fallon

From the earliest depictions of winged goddesses to the delicate, paperwinged fairies of the Victorians, from valiant Valkyries to cliff-dwelling harpies, from record-setting pilots to fearless astronauts, women have long since claimed their place in the skies, among the clouds and beyond.

Word Horde presents Fright Into Flight, the debut anthology from Amber Fallon (The Terminal, The Warblers), in which women take wing. In these stories connected by the unifying thread of flight, authors including Damien Angelica Walters, Christine Morgan, and Nadia Bulkin have spread their wings and created terrifying visions of real life angels, mystical journeys, and the demons that lurk inside us all. Whether you like your horror quiet and chilling or more in-your-face and terrifying, there’s something here for every horror fan to enjoy.

You’re in for a bumpy ride… So fasten your seatbelt, take note of the emergency exits, hold on to your airsick bag, and remember that this book may be used as a flotation device in the event of a crash landing.
