Elsa Barker was born in Vermont in 1869. Both her parents died when she was relatively young. She made a living working as a secretary, teacher, and a newspaper correspondent.

Barker was living in Paris and London before the outbreak of World War I.

She was a member of the Theosophical Society and the Rosicrucians. In 1912, while living in Paris, she began to feel "strongly impelled to take up a pencil and write." Through automatic writing, she compiled a series of letters which she felt had been dictated to her by a recently deceased judge from Los Angeles, named David P. Hatch. These were published in 1914 in a book called Letters from a Living Dead Man. She eventually published two more books of these messages from Judge Hatch.

Elsa Barker also wrote short stories and poetry.
