Mystery fans are mourning the loss of popular and prize-winning author Margaret Maron.
The prolific Maron, who wrote ten Sigrid Harald books and twenty Deborah Knott novels in addition to short stories and magazine pieces, died February 23 at the age of eighty-two.
And, reports the Raleigh (North Carolina) News & Observer, her final work was the obituary that her family could share upon her death.
Among the many honors that Maron could boast of was the fact that her first Deborah Knotts books earned her the four biggest mystery-writing awards (the Edgar, the Agatha, the Anthony and the Macavity); she also received the Mystery Writers of America's Grand Master award for her lifetime of work.
For more on her remarkable career, from such sources as her husband, check out the News & Observer’s obituary of Maron.
