C. David Baker’s first novel, A Journey of Souls, was released in 2000 and re-released in 2004 as Crusade of Tears…a Christee Nominee. He has written seven historical novels and two Christian devotionals, several of which are available in Russian language translations. Research has taken him throughout Europe, and his interviews have included a variety of fascinating people such Manfred Rommel, son of Fieldmarshal Rommel, and Johann Voss, author and veteran of the Waffen-SS, both of whom contributed much to Baker’s ‘Seduction of Eva Volk.’ Baker is very interested in the emerging opportunities of independent media, but has been published by the following:
- David C. Cook Publishing, Colorado Springs, Colorado
- Francke Verlag, Marburg, Germany
- Kingsway Communications Ltd, Eastbourne, United Kingdom
- Knigonosha, Kiev, Ukraine
- Life Co. Ltd., Minsk, Belarus
- PrestonSpeed Publications, Mill Hall, Pennsylvania
- Random House/WaterbrookMultnomah, Colorado Springs, Colorado
The descendant of early German and Scottish immigrants, Baker’s family tree is an assortment of Mennonite, Reformed, and Presbyterian families including Adam Neff–the flag bearer who stood by Zwingli as he died during the battle of Kappel, William Rittenhouse–the first American paper maker, and William Penn’s Dutch grandmother. Twenty of his ancestors served in Pennsylvania militias during the American Revolution. The father of two sons, Baker lives on a small farm with his wife, Sue. Together they raise livestock with an interest in natural/organic methods and a passion for humane treatment. Failure has been part of his life as well. It has been these deep valleys that have led David to the well of Grace from which the essence of his writing is drawn.
