Stephanie Baldi 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.
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.
As a writer, 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 cats. When not found pounding her keyboard into all hours of the night, Stephanie is currently at work on the final installment of this trilogy titled Reckoning which is slated for release in 2020.

Redemption is the journey of four deeply wounded people whose lives take a drastic turn after the commission of a robbery. The choices they make will jeopardize their very survival, a journey that begins in Melbourne, Florida and ends in Tuscany Italy. Redemption is what they seek when they realize who and what they have become.
Readers of suspense will love the fast paced plot twist and turns that will have them reading Redemption well into the night.
Redemption was a true labor of love that took two years to write. The hardest parts to write were not only some of the violent scenes but the emotional ones as well.
The cover design was a collaboration between me and a well-known artist by the name of Mary Rogers who, fortunately for me, I have the pleasure of having for a neighbor.
With this novel, I believe I delivered what I promised my readers. A Fast-paced high stakes, page-turning story to keep you on the edge of your seat.
