I just heard with great sadness that one of my favourite authors, Margaret Frazer, the pen name of Gail Frazer, passed away last night.
Her meticulously researched medieval detective stories, most of them featuring either Dame Frevisse or Joliffe, have been popular with many of us. As they played in the mid-15th century, many of the persons of this period we are so interested in came to life in the pages of her novels. For me, her Alice Chaucer is unforgettable.
Gail will be missed by many of us.
