I have some really bad news to tell you about… Lea Wait (aka Cornelia Kidd) passed away this past Friday. Her death will be a great loss to the Cozy Mystery world. All of her series (Mainely Needlepoint, Shadows Antique Print, and Maine Murder Mystery) are very, very popular for many of us.
Lea Wait wrote a blog entry for the Maine Crime Writers website over a year ago in which she described finding out about her pancreatic cancer. Here is the link to this blog entry:
Goodby, Lea Wait — Cozy Mystery readers have suffered a loss. Thank you for all your books. We will miss you.
