That's unfortunate. She was from my parents' hometown, and allowed me to interview her once for an 8th grade project about careers--always very friendly and gracious.

I first saw her and first saw Joe Lansdale at the same time -- in a panel at Aggie Con (! you might've run that one -- it was in ancient days). He loved her so much and they were so hysterical together! She was a trip...

That's so sad! She wrote some really brilliant novels that I adored.
