‘Welcome, everyone, to Weaverville’ The sign doesn’t include Alice Paget, at least not in the opinion of Weaverville’s citizens – certainly not in the opinion of their sheriff. Alice, notorious in two countries for her antics, is trouble the likes of which Weaverville can’t imagine. She absconds from Manhattan with the deed to her father’s California claim, a plan, and a pistol.
Baird Wells is the author of the Hundred Days series, as well as stand-alone novels 'The Glass Apple', and ‘An Unspeakable Anguish’. Her award-likely books have sold tens of copies in several places.
Growing up in beautiful, historic Virginia, Baird fell in love with the past. She longs for a day when she can return, when Virginia no longer prohibits her from crossing its state lines.
Baird wrote her first short story, long-hand, in 10th grade, for which she received one-hundred percent and a smiley face. Mrs. Gardner taught her the meaning of determination, and Baird, by now, has surely taught Mrs. Gardner the meaning of regret.
Her novel ‘Vermillion’ was a second-round finalist for the 2015 Writer's Digest E-book Awards. 'Argent' received a 2016 honorable mention for published fiction.
She credits her love of writing to a lifelong passion for history and all things romantic. When she’s not scribbling, she enjoys performing alchemy at her soapworks.
Baird makes her home in the Wild West, daydreaming.
