Last summer, Shannon Baker was named Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Writer of the Year – for the second time!

So life as a published writer should be on a never-ending upward spiral of success, correct?

Well, Shannon Baker is a survivor of the wild and ever unpredictable publishing-world roller coaster and on the podcast she talks about the bruises and how she managed her way through the sometimes challenging gauntlet.

And she’s here to break some fresh news that shows the roller coaster continues to move. She has started a new series and developed a new approach to writing focused on a brand new character.

Shannon is also co-chair this year of the Colorado Gold writing contest and she chats a bit about that process and, of course, the benefits of RMFW in general.

A self-proclaimed desert rat and (aspiring) NYT bestselling writer, Shannon Baker, is the author of the Kate Fox mystery series set in the remote Nebraska Sandhills.

She generously brings this unique setting to life with humor and affection so you don’t have to actually go to Nebraska to experience it.

Kirkus says: “Baker serves up a ballsy heroine, a colorful backdrop, and a surprising ending.” She is grateful to be voted Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer’s 2017-18 Writer of the Year.

This is an inspiring chat about never giving up and Shannon provides ample evidence that writing and publishing can be a highly subjective business.
