Raegan Baker grew up in Richmond, Virginia. During her high school years, 20th Century Fox came out with the animated film Anastasia, which led Raegan to learn more about the 17-year-old Russian Grand Duchess the film was loosely based on. She went on to Virginia Wesleyan College, earning a B.A. in Communications. She then started graduate school at Regent University, and eventually earned an M.A. in Public Policy. It was during her time at Regent University when she started and completed her first book, The Diary Of Grand Duchess Olga Nicholaievna - 1913. She plans to complete a third book on the Romanov Family in the near future.
