Tuesday, April 28 - Author Sarah Baker
Sarah H. Baker grew up in New Orleans, the city of music, food, and wonderful stories. After running off to Alaska to enjoy a taste of the wild pipeline days, she returned to the Lower 48 and earned a Master's degree in engineering.

Writing as S.H. Baker, Sarah has penned four installments in the Dassas Cormier Mystery Series so far:

  • Murder in Marshall's Bayou
  • The Colonel's Tale
  • Death of a Dancer
  • The Not-So-High Seas

But she is most proud of her newest release, Return to Marshall's Bayou, a full-cast audio production of the first Dassas mystery from Siren Audio Studios of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
