A message from her daughter:
Hello Dear Readers. This is Sue's daughter, Jamie. I am sorry to tell
you all that Sue passed away last night after a two year battle with
cancer. She was surrounded by family, including her devoted and adoring
husband Steve. Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and
fast. She had been fine up until just a few days ago, and then things
moved quickly. Sue always said that she would continue writing as long
as she had the juice. Many of you also know that she was adamant that
her books would never be turned into movies or TV shows, and in that
same vein, she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name.
Because of all of those things, and out of the deep abiding love and
respect for our dear sweet Sue, as far as we in the family are
concerned, the alphabet now ends at Y.
