Author Shannon Baker joins Murders, Mysteries and Mayhem host Stephen Campbell to discuss her new book, BROKEN TRUST, the second novel in her Nora Abbot mystery series.
When not writing the Nora Abbott mysteries, which involves murder, the environment, and Hopi Indians, Shannon can often be found backpacking, skiing, kayaking, cycling, or just playing lizard in the desert.
From the Colorado Rockies to the Nebraska Sandhills, the peaks of Flagstaff and the deserts of Tucson, landscapes play an important role in her books. Tainted Mountain, the first in her Nora Abbott Mystery Series, 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. When Shannon moved to Boulder, CO, Nora followed her and Broken Trust is set in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains.
In this interview, we'll discuss the Nora Abbot books, the use of the American West as a setting for a mystery series, how writing conferences have played a part her in career, and Shannon's habit of writing about the area in which she's currently living.
