Tony Hillerman, a long-time New Mexico writer has died. I posted about it in both my writing blog and my Live Journal, so I'm not going to repeat myself. But, I had no idea he was Catholic as reported at the Shrine of the Holy Whapping. His faith doesn't make him a better writer or anything like that, but I find it even more fascinating when I learn little details like that.
May he rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him.
