Baxter Clare Trautman — Author

Franco mysteries published by Bella Books, and a work of non-fiction with the Sierra Club. She lives in the fire-prone wilds of California and when not scanning the horizon for smoke, creates her own incendiary works. Her awesome website is at: http://baxterclare.com
