the Adult Summer Reading Game Starts June 14!

Elizabeth Peters has been responsible for over seventy mystery and suspense novels and was acknowledged for the quality and quantity of her works by being awarded the Malice Domestic Lifetime Achievement Award. Peters is a pseudonym for Barbara Mertz; the author also writes as Barbara Michaels.Whether writing quasi-supernatural tales of romantic suspense as Michaels, or humorous, often historical mysteries as Peters, in both cases she uses her skill in setting, factual research, and subversion of the genre’s conventions. In addition, as Dulcy Brainard described in Publishers Weekly, all of Peters‘s books feature “female protagonists who survive danger and solve mysteries with wit, intelligence, good humor and, usually, good fortune in romance.” Deirdre Donahue likewise observed in USA Today: “Few heroines are more bold–or hilarious–than the ones created by Barbara Mertz.
