David Baker

David Baker has had a lifelong fascination with history, rugby, and medieval combat. He has been a soldier, a union wireman, worked as a reporter/photographer and founded the Modern Medievalist blog and matching Facebook group. An avid fan of alternative history and steampunk fiction, Baker likes to build fictional worlds in his spare time.


Although a lifelong desert rat, he now can be found getting his feet wet in the tidal estuaries of the central Atlantic coast with his constant companion Sir Franky the wonder poodle. He is currently working on his first novel, a military science fiction piece set in an alternate version of ancient India.
