RIP Barbara Mertz


Barbara Mertz (September 29, 1927 – August 8, 2013)

Barbara Mertz wrote under the pen-name of Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Michaels. I suppose that I will remember her best for her Amelia Peabody series.

The Amelia Peabody stories are set in the late 19th century during the golden age of Egyptology. I highly recommend them.

  1. I have never read this author’s books, but being a nut for all things ancient Egypt, I would like to! I really enjoyed her list of helpful hints for traveling to Egypt. I always dream of being filthy rich and being able to go there!

    1. Maybe after all of the political crap has passed.
