Chandler Baker got her start ghostwriting novels for teens and tweens, including installments in a book series that has sold more than 1 million copies. She grew up in Florida, went to college at the University of Pennsylvania and studied law at the University of Texas. She now lives in Austin with her husband. Although she loves spinning tales with a touch of horror, she is a much bigger scaredy-cat than her stories would lead you to believe.
Genres: Mystery, Young Adult Fiction
Chandler Baker recommends
"A modern murder mystery that exposes our deepest fears about how vulnerable we are to the parts of ourselves we hide online. As the secrets pile up, Shepard writes her calculating anti-heroines with sharp clarity, daring the reader to keep pace alongside her. I, for one, was breathless."
Pretty Things (2020)
"A can't-look-away story of and for our generation, Pretty Things combines a spellbinding setting with dark, slippery secrets to expose what we've always known--or maybe just hoped--to be true about the gilded lives presented in our social media feeds. Janelle Brown is a literary powerhouse."
East Coast Girls (2020)
"With lush prose and poignant reflections on fate, forks in the road, and the power of female friendships, East Coast Girls is a book whose pages demand to be both snuck in under the covers late into the night and savored. I've already made a permanent place for it right beside Judy Blume's Summer Sisters in the bookshelf of my heart."
The Girl from Widow Hills (2020)
"With Hitchcockian flair, Megan Miranda shrewdly examines what becomes of the people at the center of those rare, sensational news stories that capture the nation’s attention. The Girl from Widow Hills gave me the creeps in the best way possible."
The Comeback (2020)
"Raw and nuanced...slices straight down to the nerve. A chilling exposé unfolding in real time--I dare anyone to read it without squirming in suspense and in recognition."
In Case of Emergency (2020)
E G Scott
"A smart whodunit that brims with human insight about the surprising ways in which we heal and the importance of coming face-to-face with our role in the trajectory of our lives. In Case of Emergency is a fast-paced volley of a story batted back and forth between a cast of entertaining characters, all while stylishly concealing more than a few tricks up its proverbial sleeve."
