Crime novelist Barbara Parker has died

Does it seem like a lot of crime novelists are off to the Great Library in the Sky lately?

Barbara Parker, of whom I was and am a devoted fan, has joined that list.

Oline Cogdill has a more in the Sun-Sentinel

So sad. I always get depressed when a writer's like I'm losing out on some great read that will never happen now....It's the loss of potential that breaks my heart! :(

She was too young to die. What was the cause?


Jo said...

So young! The great thing about being a published writer though is that part of you is immortalized. She has her legacy.

She sure wasn't very old. Alas, another display to put out on the reference desk. At this rate, I've been able to change out the memorial displays every two weeks or so.

I created an online memorial for Barbara. Please visit and leave a message, light a candle, and share it with anyone who might appreciate it. Thank you.
