Essay: An Appreciation of Margaret Maron in Mystery Scene

October 3, 2013

131cover250I’ve been following Margaret Maron’s career for more than twenty years now, helping to document many of the highpoints for magazines including The Armchair Detective, Mystery Scene, and North Carolina Literary Review—and I couldn’t have been more thrilled about her being named Grand Master of Mystery Writers of America earlier this year. It’s a special honor then to have been invited by Mystery Scene to pen a short appreciation of Margaret and her career. Check out “Tales from the Tar Heel State: The North Carolina Mysteries of Margaret Maron” in the magazine’s Fall 2013 issue, out on newsstands this month. — Art Taylor


  1. I’ll look forward to reading your appreciation, Art. Margaret Maron is at the top of my favorite authors list, and I’m delighted to learn she’s been named a Grand Master by MWA.

  2. Thanks so much, Anne! It was a fun one to write. :-)
