John Baird Jr. Releases BEYOND THE MYSTIC
by BWW News Desk - Aug 30, 2016

John Baird is the writer and author of the novel, 'Beyond The Mystic'. John first discovered his love for the art of writing when he got involved with a drama club in middle school. From that point on, John thought he was destined to become a writer, but years turned over before he would truly discover what it meant to be a writer. During the recession, John was forced to relocate, so his family could keep up with the cost of living. He was only 16 at this point. He and his family made a new home for themselves in the state of Georgia. He finished high school there, and then had to move in order to make ends meet yet again. John found a new home in the state of Oklahoma. It was there that John searched for employment for some time, until finally, he found a job at a warehouse/factory. John's job was quite remedial, which allowed him to think about whatever. John spent most of his time creating 'Beyond The Mystic' in his mind. Today, John lives in Oklahoma, and he cannot wait to write his next book. (more...)
