Max on... Blaize Clement
Hi Pals... I have some bad news and then some good news. First, I don't know if you remember but a while back... Like in March or April of 2010, I reviewed a book by Blaize Clement. I gave it a good review because it was about a cat sitter and it was a mystery. A perfect combination and it also was part of a series, so I had other books to look forward to. Most of all, I liked it because the book showed that Blaize Clement really liked cats...
Well, I had made a comprehensive sweep of the blogs "only occasionally" I follow for quite a while. To my shock, I discovered that Blaize Clement has passed away. That makes me very sad. Her son wrote two wonderful blog posts about her and her work.
Well, his posts really moved me. It seems that she knew that her days were numbered and she worked up to the end. The publisher too, planned ahead. There are a couple more of her books coming out and the publisher has made arrangements for her son, John Clement, to take over writing books after that.
I just think it's neat that her series will live on. It's a great tribute to her. Just thought you would like to know this if you're a fan of her books. And, I'd like to say thank you to her for writing such great books.
