Charlotte MacLeod, RIP

Mystery writer Charlotte MacLeod, who wrote gentle, intriguing, character-driven mysteries, has died.

What the obituary fails to capture or mention is that Ms. MacLeod was a very sweet lady, an excellent conversationalist, and a dedicated cat lover. I was priviledged enough to spend some time with her on a number of occasions and though I didn't know her particularly well, I enjoyed her company a great deal and the more time I did spend with her, the more I enjoyed it (always a good barometer for measuring a person ).

She'll be missed.
