Phyllis A. Whitney

Gothic novelist Phyllis Ayame Whitney has died, at age 104! So many authors seem to be passing away lately, but I'd say she had a good run at it. 104, wow.

She wrote young adult novels, gothic suspense, and some 'how to write' books as well. I remember reading her gothic novels during the summers, when they were the books sitting around at my grandma's or aunt's houses. I've always had a taste for gothic romance - and Phyllis Whitney was one of the big ones.

  1. Wow, 104! That's amazing. I remember reading her gothic novels when I was a kid, too--especially on vacation. Sad to hear she's gone.
