After trying her hand at several different careers, Stephanie Baldi decided to pursue her dream of writing a novel. Stephanie grew up in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach. Her love of writing began with Saturday trips with her mother to the small local library where children would gather to hear a story read by the local Librarian. After the story ended, Stephanie would pick out a book to take home and read. Throughout her teen and young adult years, Stephanie’s desire to someday pen a novel of her own always simmered in the background. But it was not until years later after a career in Patient Accounting and a stint as a Licensed Realtor that her dreams of becoming a writer flourished with a move to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. It was there that her first novel, Redemption was conceived. But family trials and tribulations forced her to abandon the manuscript for a time until her move to Georgia to be closer to her family. Determined to finish her manuscript, she settled in and after countless hours sitting at her computer, Redemption was finally completed. Drawn to thriller and suspense novels, Stephanie is dedicated to giving her reader’s fast-paced, high stakes, page-turning stories that keep you on the edge of your seat and are full of surprising twists. She resides at her lake home in Villa Rica, Georgia with her husband and two
