My favorite author died yesterday.  I’m surprised by how effected I am.  I’ve been reading her books for close to 30 years, and while I knew she was sick, 76 is too young to die.

If you’ve never read any of her books, please try one in her honor. She wrote something for every age group, was witty, wise, and kind to her characters.  Some of my favorites (though I’ve read them all at least twice) are: Fire and Hemlock, Magicians of Caprona, Archer’s Goon, Deep Secret…

I could go on, she was publishing for almost 35 years.

Rest in Peace Ms. Jones.  You gave me joy, hope, and friends I revisited time and again. I love you.
