Joyce Levine, who wrote many mystery novels with her husband Jim, died recently. I loved their Renaissance Faire Mysteries but they had a ton more. I have never met them but they were members of a yahoo group I was in years ago, and they were always very nice.
If you get a moment, take a look around their website. These folks were prolific and may embody that old Woody Allen quote about success being mainly about showing up. They showed up. They worked hard and they had success. May she rest in peace.
