Before becoming an author, Jeri Baird worked as a handmade paper artist, an entrepreneurship teacher for at-risk high school students, a reflexologist, a rock painter, and a zombie (in a film, not a real one).
As an Illinois farm child, she shared her life with an assortment of pets including mice, hamsters, rabbits, cats, dogs, ferrets, a rescued sparrow named Chicken, and a pony named Red Baron who thought he was a dog. Jeri now lives on the Western Slope of Colorado with her husband and one cat, who both make her laugh. When she’s not writing, she enjoys kayaking, the scenery from the back of her husband’s motorcycle, and visiting her sons in Wyoming and California.
