“Beverly ‘Kezi’ Matthews passed away on Nov. 16, 2010. After an early career in radio and television, both on and off the air, Beverly settled into a lengthy career of creating original artist dolls and then took up writing. Within a short time, she became an award winning novelist, writing three powerful novels–Scorpio’s Child (Cricket, 2001), Flying Lessons (Cricket, 2002), and John Riley’s Daughter (Cricket, 2000)–and a number of short stories for young people.”
