  1. Great to see this re blogged. AJ Hayes was a beloved figure on the mystery scene and deserves to be remembered. His wife is a special person too and takes great comfort in the fact that other writers are getting recognition and support through the contest named for AJ, and the publicity happening around the world from people who loved him. Thank you! Elaine/Anonymous-9
