Farewell Amelia Peabody, Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Mertz

I’ve just learned that Barbara Mertz, who wrote the wonderful Amelia Peabody books under the name Elisabeth Peters, died one month ago, at the age of 85.

Those books gave so much pleasure, and inspired and guided our trip to Egypt several years ago.

Most selfishly, I’m disappointed we’ll never see the book “The Painted Queen“, which she wrote that she was working on two years ago.
