Group Description


TRYON — Lilian Jackson Braun Bettinger, 97, author of The Cat Who mystery series for more than 40 years, died of natural causes Saturday, June 4, 2011, at Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills in Landrum, S.C. She had lived in Tryon for the past 23 years.

She wrote all of her books in long hand. They were published with limited editing. "I don't pay attention to the publishing business. I just write my kitty-cat stories."

She died with one regret, her husband of 33 years said Monday. Because of her failing health, she was unable to finish her last novel, “The Cat Who Smelled Smoke.” .

“She regretted it most of all because so many fans wanted another book,” Earl Bettinger said.

Donations may be made to Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills, 260 Fairwinds Road, Landrum, S.C. 29356

There are other lists to check out if you just want to talk about the bo
