Meandering about . . .

Today is the birthday of Edith Mary Pargeter (September 28, 1913 – October 14, 1995), author. She was a prolific writer and wrote under a number of pseudonyms.

Edith Mary Pargeter is probably best known under the name Ellis Peters, the pen name she used to write the highly popular series of Brother Cadfael medieval mysteries.
