Sad news though she lived a long full accomplished life. She's one of my favorite authors as Barbara Michaels & Elizabeth Peters. I love her gothics and her mysteries and the skill, intelligence and wit of her writing. Her Vicky Bliss/John Smythe series is one of my all time favorites and Ammie, Come Home a classic has become a recent favorite.

So sad about this. My "A review" for applying to be an AAR reviewer was Crocodile on the Sandbank. I've pulled out my tattered copy of Crocodile and am drinking a toast with a whiskey and soda.

This is so sad. She did lead a full and accomplished life but I will still miss her writing.

I very much enjoyed her Amelia Peabody and Viki Bliss series. RIP.

Her characters live on - time for a re-read.
