About

Background
Born in a small town in Pennsylvania, T.J. Baer wrote her first novel-length work at the age of thirteen, a science fiction epic starring Commander T.J. Baer and her Immense Ego. After graduating from college and spending a dull handful of years working a computer job, she ran off to teach English in Japan and ended up living there for four years. She’s been teaching ever since, and now lives in Chicago with her cats, who are decent enough roommates but never chip in enough for rent.
