Dixie Hemingway Cat Sitter Mysteries, died of cancer on July 20. Elaine Viets posted the obituary from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune on DorothyL yesterday.
From the Sarasota Herald-Tribune:
Mystery writer Blaize Clement spent the last months of her life working against the ultimate deadline to complete the seventh and eighth novels in her popular Dixie Hemingway series.
And although Clement lost her fight with cancer July 20, her beloved pet sitter character will live on, not only through two upcoming novels, but through her son, John, who has signed a contract with St. Martin’s Minotaur to write at least two additional books in the series, which is set on Siesta Key.
Clement, who was 78, came late to mystery writing; the first Dixie Hemingway novel, “Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter,” was published in 2006. Its success was a happy accident in a life sometimes marked by physical pain and financial challenges.

The next issue of Mysteries Readers Journal will focus on Animal Mysteries and will include reviews of her books.
