H. Terrell Griffin: R.I.P.

Sad news. H. Terrell Griffin passed away this week. Terry was the award-winning and best-selling author of eleven Matt Royal mysteries set on the Florida Gulf Coast island of Longboat Key and Vindication, set in The Villages in Central Florida. Terry grew up in Waycross, Georgia and Sanford, Florida. He earned degrees in history and law from Mercer University and was a board-certified civil trial lawyer based in Orlando. He served three years in the US Army, much of it as a medic in an Armored Cavalry regiment on the East German border.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I just discovered his books at the beginning of February, in a shop on Anna Maria Island. I read “Found” first, and then backtracked to the start with “Longboat Blues.” I love the series because I’m a snowbird who spends delightful time on AMI and enjoy reading Mr. Griffin’s mysteries set in a location I know well. I’m looking forward to reading each one of his books and am so sad that he is gone. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
