It’s been just over a week since news broke that novelist Jeremiah Healy committed suicide at age 66. Now, the Mystery Writers of America Florida Chapter is collecting fond remembrances of the man who created series private eye John Francis Cuddy.
A note posted this morning in Mystery Fanfare asks that friends and colleagues of Healy send their tributes “of 250 words or less” to author Elaine Viets at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for such submissions is short: You have to send them in by this coming Tuesday, August 26. “Favorite photos (jpg and gif files) are also welcome.”
