Interview with G. Mitchell Baker

Master Koda is pleased to feature a great author and wonderful friend, G. Mitchell Baker. He is not only a terrific writer, but goes out of his way to support others in their journey to publication. He just recently published the second in his Lethal Believer series and to celebrate he is offering the first book at the amazingly low price of 99¢! I hope you all enjoy getting to know him today.

After a difficult day what do you do to recuperate? Does it work?

Often I am already looking forward to writing … To dwell on writing a good story often means more to me, than dwelling on a difficult day…


When was the last time you helped someone that was desperately in need? What did you do? Was this person grateful?

I like to think I’m helping many and often … sometimes it is public, sometimes it is a private thing… Years ago, I lived in a fourth floor brownstone in Chicago. It was a cold winter day and a fellow was taking shelter in the entryway.  I’d just gone shopping and had bought some huge Valencia oranges. I offered them to the fellow and he threw them back up at me and started yelling at me “What am I going to do with these?” I explained I thought the Vitamin C would be good … He explained to me they’d make him sick and promptly asks for money for drink… I refused … He calmed enough to explain that to eat food would make him sick … his stomach was so ruined from the drink… He left into the cold, sad. I went back into my brownstone, sad…

Since that time I’ve never looked at gifting the same … to me it’s so much more complicated… I provided scholarships over the years, and donated through churches, but I always find myself gravitating toward small events … spontaneous giving or contribution … I don’t ever claim anything for what I do … rather I try to stand in the shoes of those receiving … often there is so much more to consider…


What is the worst advice you have ever given someone?

I don’t know … I can’t be sure … What I can say is, after a career of giving advice I don’t recall anyone legitimately trying to hold me accountable for bad advice … There have been plenty who would attempt to transfer their sense of loss and blame … but it was typically ill-conceived and wrought with emotion…


What is one of the most unusual things you have done in your life? 

I’ve played on national championship baseball teams; I’ve been a drum major for a Drum Corp International (DCI) touring group; I’ve attended schools internationally; I’ve competed at the highest levels in the martial arts … Shoot … ‘I don’t know’   What is ‘unusual anymore?


Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

From ‘Lethal Believers: DVM’ (Master Koda Select Publishing 2013)

I would have to choose and along with Malachi Danta-Mercadel the character of Hesiod, the oldest Greek poet and he who documented the genealogy of the Greek Myths.  Hesiod complements Danta’s drive to protect others, by seeking out a way to rehabilitate his poetry when a peer (poet John Keats) takes his work and distorts it in the name of unrequited love.

From ‘Lethal Believers: The Innocents’ (Master Koda Select Publishing 2013)

I would have to choose Malachi Danta-Mercadel given his determination to protect those who would need protection from the obscene.

From ‘The Involvement of Emerson’ (Brent House Books 2013)

I would have to choose Jon Emerson because of his resilience.


Give a one sentence synopsis of your novel:

Lethal Believers: Parisian Subterranea” (Forthcoming Master Koda Select Publishing)

Malachi Danta-Mercadel, partnering with Lamia, a myth in search of rehabilitation, and with Hesiod partnering with Lamia to overcome the ill-effects of a poet who has attempted to re-write Greek Mythology, all rail against the Mantid Tranquil’s illicit operations.


Lethal Believers: DVM’ (Master Koda Select Publishing 2013)

Malachi Danta-Mercadel partners with Lamia, a myth in search of rehabilitation, learns of Kagan Brancher, a principled youth railing against the Mantid Tranquil organization after an innocent horse is victimized when a rogue veterinarian deviates from Mantid’s path of illicit operations.


Lethal Believers: The Innocents’ (Master Koda Select Publishing 2013)

Malachi Danta-Mercadel, retired INTERPOL/Secret Service rails against the Mantid Tranquil organization bent on vesting a form of paranormal revenge given Danta’s handiwork for exposing Mantid’s illicit operations.


The Involvement of Emerson’ (Brent House Books 2013)

Jon Emerson, no longer the arrogant legal professional and sovereign over meaningless relationships, eventually experiences meaningful connections.
