In Remembrance of a Fellow Author and Friend
Author Carol Backus passed away eight years agao this week after a long battle with cancer. Carol founded Lake Country Romance Writers in 1993 and, as Suzanne Barclay, wrote more than a dozen books for Harlequin Historical as well as one for Silhouette Intimate Moments.
Her historicals were set in the medieval period, and she was known for her meticulous research. Hardly a month goes by that she is not on someone's Recommended Reads list. Her fans loved for her stories and then, if they were lucky enough to meet her at one of the numerous conferences she attended, knew her as a friend.
Carol, you are missed.
