Charm Baker’s love of writing has always been a part of her, but she credits the desire to get serious about writing to author Ralph Keyes. His book titled The Courage to Write was the turning point in her life. It helped her make the decision to pursue writing as a career. She eventually combined her love of teaching, writing, and books, into a profitable activity. Authoring a number of short ebooks was enough to wet Baker’s appetite for self-publishing. Some of those titles include: 6-Step Book Writing Process, Sell Used Books Online, Twitter Social Media Guide, Several Simple Solutions, and How To Call it Quits and Move On.
