Over the past year as I have been writing this blog, I have had the fortune to meet some lovely people and enjoy their support, warmth and shared expertise. One of these was MM Bennetts, a remarkable lady who sadly passed away this week. I will remember her as a woman with a passion for history, family, horses and life itself, always full of good humour and grace.
For some twenty years, she was a book critic for the Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, specialising in history and fiction. She was one of the editors of Castles, Customs and Kings ~ True Tales by English Historical Fiction Authors, as well as the author of two novels set amidst the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars: May 1812 and Of Honest Fame.
Earlier this year MM gave an interview to Stephanie at the wonderful Layered Pages site. My post today is simply a link to that interview and to a tribute to MM. I hope you will enjoy it and hopefully read MM's books too, if you haven't already, you won't regret it.
