I am rather proud of my writing and I do love to encourage others to write too.  Our stories are so important.  Communication is what helps us know each other more closely, more intimately, so we feel that vital human connection.  I have been fortunate to help many individuals share their voices and I find that truly to be such an honor.

With my older writing, mostly in engineering,  prior to my gender transition, I was known as E. Scott Baker, E being for Eugene.  I always went by my middle name Scott before.  My full name is now Renee S. Baker.  I’ve kept the S. to honor my male past and to honor my parents.
