Baxter Trautman's Biography

Member Info

Jun 2010

Psychologist James Hillman wrote, "A calling may be postponed, avoided intermittently, missed. It may also possess you completely. Whatever, eventually it will out."

My novels deal with the inevitable consequences of denying or subverting a calling and the redemption possible when that calling is at last accepted. 


Exposed to Hemingway and Steinbeck like most American school kids, I fell in love with both. Odd influences for a young girl.
