Love her books. I was just reading an early Vicky Bliss on a Kindle, and her wit is timeless. Will be sorely missed.

I studied Archaeology and read mysteries to ease tension. I have all of the Elizabeth Peters books and treasure them all. My condolences to her family. She is loved and will never be forgotten. Neither by you her family nor her fans.

You have been such an inspiration for me. I've learned so much from your work, fiction and nonfiction. Thank you.

I LOVED her books and wanted to grow up and become Amelia Peabody. Much thanks to your mom for all the reading pleasure she has given me over the years.

I feel as though I have lost a beloved friend. Your books and characters have been an important part of my life. Condolences to the family on the loss of this brilliant storyteller. The world is saddened but the heavens have another gained another blazing star.

What sad news. My deepest sympathy to Mrs Mertz' family and friends. I have read and treasured her stories and characters for years. Each year, I allow myself the joy of reading Amelia's series straight through. I understand and appreciate her decision to leave them still in Egypt. Abdullah's death was bad enough. I also loved when she appeared in Laughter of Dead Kings in search of more Emerson journals. What a lady. I wish I had known her

Barbara is my favorite author and has been for years. Her wit and humor shines through her writing, especially in the Amelia books. She piqued my interest in Egypt and gave me a lifelong curiosity about ancient cultures. How we will all miss her!! RIP

I met Barbara in Washington when she had just published the "compendium". What a charming, funny speaker. The entire audience was spellbound as she told how she wrote and how she had developed Amelia and family as characters. I will love her books forever. My heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

I am saddened to hear of the loss of one of the greatest mystery writers. She was truly a talented woman with an incredible life. May God Bless her family.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Barbara Mertz. As a teenager I became enamored of Barbara Michaels' books, introducing them to my Mom and sister. All three of us derived shivers and great enjoyment from her hauntings! In later years my youngest daughter, then 12, and I spent a wonderful summer reading every Peters book we could find. She is 24 and we talk about them still! Three generations of my family enjoyed the worlds Ms. Mertz created. I know we will return to them again and again. After all the adventures she created in this lifetime, may Barbara be off to new adventures of her own! Godspeed and thank you!
