Susan P. Baker


Susan P. Baker brings her experience as a Texas district court judge, practicing attorney, and probation officer to her books, each of which has a legal angle a bit different from the last. Her previous works are the Mavis Davis novels, My First Murder and The Sweet Scent of Murder about a former probation officer/child abuse investigator who opens her own private investigation firm. Her third novel, Death of a Prince, is a mystery set in her hometown of Galveston. The protagonists are mother and daughter criminal defense lawyers defending the daughter of another lawyer for his murder. Her nonfiction works are Murdered Judges of the 20th Century, true stories, which she researched and wrote over a six-year period. Lastly, because the heartbreak of divorce was something she witnessed every day from the bench, she wrote a small book advising both pro se litigants and others involved in the family court system on how to move through the courts with as little misery as possible. Heart of Divorce-Advice from a Judge first came out in 2004 but is as timely now as then.
Susan is the past head of the Southwest Chapter of Mystery Writers of America, a member of Sisters in Crime, Authors Guild, Writers League of Texas, Romance Writers of America, and Galveston Novel and Short Story Writers. She is married, the mother of two children, and lives in Texas and Mexico with her husband.
