Shannon Baker


Shannon Baker is the author of the Nora Abbott mystery series from Midnight Ink - a fast-paced mix of Hopi Indian mysticism, environmental issues, and murder. The first in the series, "Tainted Mountain," is set in Flagstaff, AZ, where she lived for several years and worked for The Grand Canyon Trust, a hotbed of environmentalists who, usually, don’t resort to murder. It is a 2013 finalist in the New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards.

Her most recent book, "Stripped Bare," is part of her Kate Fox Mystery Series, set in rural Nebraska. Shannon Baker was Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' 2014 Writer of the Year.
