Irene Baron - Author


A former teacher and current pilot, Irene Baron also worked with the Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA), Supreme Command Headquarters, Research & Development Center in Thailand four years while employed by Battelle Memorial Institute as an Information Specialist, Geologist, and Aerial Photographer.  In that capacity she directed the aerial photography from various Air America Sikorski Helio-19 helicopters and authored the geology and hydrology sections of the classified Mekong River Project book. She also wrote the Operational Procedures Manual, Laboratory Material Division (all levels) for that facility.

Her first nonfiction book, Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery, was awarded the First Place, Gold Medal as a 2013 Exemplary Christian Education Book during the Illumination Book Award sponsored by the Jenkins Group. This award was designed to honor and bring increased recognition to the year's best Christian Education title written and published with a Christian worldview. The idea for the book originated when Baron unexpectedly received 68 astronomy computer programs from NASA. After several years of research, she found evidence proving the Christmas star event.  With extensive studies in Archaeoastronomy, archeology, Bible archeology, ancient history, and ancient art, she found records explaining how astronomers and wisemen who lived over 2,000-years ago used symbolism to interpret sky events. These studies were used to integrate the facts and symbolism of the celestial events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ.

Baron's second book, MARY KNEW - The Biography of Mary from Ancient Scriptures, was written in 2018 as a historical narrative. A historical narrative is the writing of history in a story-based form. Traditional narrative follows the chronological order of the history. It is driven by the events that happened and is centered upon individuals, action and intention.

Baron said she was writing the book in answer to a popular song, asking if Mary knew what was going to happen to her during her lifetime. Surprised that most people didn't know, she wanted to inform them as to the history and background of Mary, mother of Jesus Christ.  She emphatically stated, "Yes, Mary knew what was going to happen to her during her lifetime!"

This historical narrative provides information about how Mary was named, blessed, and ordained by God to be the mother of Jesus before her conception. It contains detailed biographical information about her parents and their trials, her preconception consecration by God, her birth and early life, her Temple years and holy vow, refusal of Joseph when selected by God, their betrothal, difficulties, and the beautiful phenomena that occurred during the birth of Jesus Christ. This compilation of traditions and history from ancient scriptures is filled with stories of angel visitations, Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in front of witnesses and miracles. 
Mary was born of a barren woman in a miraculous manner. Her parents were told by heavenly messengers that Mary was to be the most important woman that will ever be born on Earth. While yet a virgin, in a way unparalleled, Mary was to bring forth the Son of God. God provided the name, Jesus, Immanuel, when He announced the future conception of Mary. According to the signification of the name, Jesus was to become the Savior of all nations.

The original scriptures from which this information was obtained were used in early Christian churches for hundreds of years. They are not found in the New Testament because they were written about Mary. New Testament books were limited to those about Jesus Christ. This book includes a glossary, references and a list of prophecies from the Old Testament.

Irene Baron resides in Ohio. She has one daughter.

Baron is currently writing a fiction adventure series with a paranormal twist.
