A Sad Loss This Week

Posted Aug 29 2013

I was saddened this week to hear that Matthew Shear, publisher at St. Martin’s Press, passed away.  Although I only had the pleasure of meeting him once at the Flatiron building in New York where St. Martin’s is located, I was impressed by his friendliness.  My editor says he was a wonderful boss and mentor, and he will sorely be missed by the staff at St. Martin’s. It was under his leadership that my career as a novelist finally came to be, and I will always appreciate that.  Rest in peace.

    It’s always sad to hear of somebody you’ve met (even once) to pass away. I’m sorry to hear this of a person in your work arena to pass away.

    I recently had the same experience where an artist friend of mine passed away over that last few weeks. I only met him once when I was a teenager and he left a lasting impression on me. I was planning on going and visiting him this Christmas while I was down the coast, but it looks as though I’ll be visitng his family and grave instead; sadely.

    It’s so good Matthew was the man who helped you rise to the place where you are in your writing career. Remember him for how he did that; and how good life is now as he’s the one who helped you get here. 😀
