Shannon Baker has written two very different female sleuths for her mystery novels.
We touch on the way that the landscape around a character can be a metaphor for their state of mind, and also on history and geography in this wide-ranging conversation.
The day I spoke to Shannon, she had just arrived back home from the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ conference where, for the second time (!), she received the writer of the year award. If you’re looking for strong, confident female heroines in your mystery novels, you’ve come to the right place when you sit down with a Shannon Baker book. 😉
