It's always sad when we lose favorite mystery writers. Our latest is Dorothy Gilman, author of the "Mrs. Pollifax" novels, who died February 2. Gilman was named Mystery Writers of America's Grand Master in 2010.
Today, Karen Kiley of the Cary Public Library told me that Blaize Clement who wrote the popular Dixie Hemingway pet sitter series had died in July. Clement's latest, The Cat Sitter's Pajamas, was just out in January. Karen promises a review of that one soon.
