Baxter Clare

(Baxter Clare Trautman)

Baxter Clare Trautman earned a Master's Degree in Biology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and promptly turned her hand to writing.  Her stories occur in rough places - South Central L.A., Middle East war zones, the Big Sur wilderness - and her characters are raw around the edges. If you'd rather be moved than distracted, and care for hope in a story more than happily ever after, you have found your author. A practicing wildlife biologist, Trautman lives in central California with her wife and animals. Trautman is a Rainbow Award Winner and Lambda Literary Award finalist.
