About the Author

Roger Weatherburn Baker

Following education in England and France, Roger began his professional career as a cub reporter with the London Financial Times. But, impatient to travel and work abroad, he soon realized he'd have a long wait for such plumb assignments on such a renowned publication, so he looked elsewhere. He worked on a succession of corporate publications eventually becoming an editor first in London then Paris.

His work in business journalism was recognized with professional awards in both England and France, but international recognition came in 1978 when he became the first European to be made an Accredited Member of the International Association of Business Communicators (ABC) and received their prestigious Gold Quill award. That year, he relocated to New York where he worked as a corporate communications executive first for one then another of the world's largest multinational corporations, continuing to receive national awards and recognition for publications under his management. In 2004, he published his first novel "Nobel Rot". Today, he lectures and writes about art, food and wine, and international travel destinations. Read more >>
