Sally S. Wright, in Memoriam

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ June 15, 2018

Sally Wright author of exquisite mystery novels died June 15, 2018

"I have lost a treasure...such a friend as never can have been surpassed--" Cassandra Austen on the death of her sister Jane

Level-headed, clear-eyed, valiant-for-truth, Sally Wright saw and understood human nature as it is. Never dramatizing, never demonizing, she used this understanding and her passion for meticulous research to craft her six superb Ben Reese mysteries and her three, perhaps more personal, Jo Grant novels. The mystery-writing community recognized her excellence with an Edgar Award nomination.

Sally was pure class and a true for better-or-for-worse friend. The world needs more Sally Wrights. Sadly, we have one fewer. May she rest in peace and rise in Glory, and may Light Perpetual shine upon her.

Dear Val, Thank you so much for sharing your memories of Sally. Yes, an absolutely lovely person! I have the privilege of bringing her third Jo Grand book into print. It's one of her best--a great legacy. I'll be posting on DorothyL when it is available. A few weeks yet, probably.
