The author Susan P. Baker is seated behind a table covered with a tablecloth with a pattern of book spines arranged in rows. Her own books are displayed on top of the tablecloth. Her body is seen from bust up in a gap between the books displayed. She is wearing a black shirt with a tan collared jacket over it and a necklace. On her jacket is a circular brooch. She is smiling and holding a book open against the table with a pen, as if she is going to sign it. Behind her is a tan wall with a wood paneling that rises midway up the wall. Behind her and to her left, in the right side of the picture, a promotional display with the cover of her novel Texas Style Justice is resting on a display easel.
