Maxine Clarke was a bright thread that wove through the fabric of the crime fiction community. She drew us together, kept us close and nurtured all of us. Our community has lost a shining light and an important influence. More than that, our community has lost a good, good friend.
So many members of the crime fiction community have taken the time to share their thoughts; it’s really been overwhelming. But it just shows how well liked, respected and admired Maxine was. In her memory, I’ve gathered links to blog posts that various members of the crime fiction community have written in her honour. Each of them is a lovely tribute to a very special person.
I hope you’ll join us in remembering Maxine. If you’d like to share your thoughts, please add the link to your blog post using the Mr. Linky tool below. Click on the Mr. Linky icon to add your link. Then, visit the other posts to read others’ thoughts.
In about a week, I’ll send this worldwide tribute to Maxine’s family, whom I am sure will appreciate knowing that so many people cared about her and remember her. Maxine is no longer with us, but we will never forget her. She will always be a part of our crime fiction community.
