Bearer of sad news

Dear readers,
It is with extreme sadness that I write of the death of Canadian author Lyn Hamilton at age 65 from a long bout with cancer. I will remember Lyn well from conferences at Malice, Bouchercon, and in Toronto. She and Rhys Bowen signed books at our store soon after Lyn's book The Celtic Riddle was made into a Murder She Wrote episode. Lyn's story of watching it for the first time was hysterical. She was critical about parts of the episode, but enjoyed seeing her work on screen. She was a warm delightful and funny person who was knowledgeable about what she wrote (archaeology and travel to exotic places) and wrote it entertainingly in her series featuring Lara McClintoch. I recommend the series highly. She will be greatly missed by us all. You can read more about the series at

Also we are informed that British author Celia Fremlin has also passed away earlier this summer. Her book the Spider-Orchid is a favorite of mine.
