BARBARA MICHAELS (BARBARA G. MERTZ) The prolific author signs this typescript containing an excerpt from her novel The Crying Child Typescript signed: "Barbara Michaels" in blue ink, 1p, 8½x11. Typescript from the author's book The Crying Child. In part: "'You look great,' I said,/ 'Look [sic] like hell.' She linked arms with me and turned me toward the steps./ 'Where [sic] Ran?'/ 'Boston. He had to go down this morning on business./ That's why he couldn't meet you.'" Barbara Michaels was one of the two pen names of Barbara G. Mertz (1927-2013) (the other being Elizabeth Peters), who was born and raised in Illinois. A New York Times bestselling author, she earned a Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago in 1952. After marrying and having two children, Michaels increasingly devoted her attention to writing, eventually focusing on mystery novels and going on to publish scores of successful books under her two pseudonyms. In 1986, Peters served as Grandmaster at the inaugural Anthony Awards. Then, in 1998, she was named Grandmaster by the Mystery Writers of America at the Edgar Awards. Peters received the Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic in 2003. Lightly toned. Two horizontal mailing folds. Faint creasing toward top edge. Stain at center toward right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
